The worst YHA we have yet to visit do to lack of electrical outlets (two in the entire hostel common area for EVERYONE to recharge their electronics), NO outlets in the rooms (WHAT?!!!), windows that open only a crack in rooms with no circulation and face the sun and are too hot and stuffy to sleep in so we sleep in the hallway or downstairs on the couch!!! Seriously, outside on the lawn would have been next if we had had to stay another night. Also, the common kitchen is VERY limited.
