What a treatment!

Terrible (1.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on February 13, 2007

This place was pretty good, until I actually walked into the door. From there, it was basically downhill. Its not necessarily the inept workers behind the desk or the check in process that actually frustrated me more than my 13 hour travel day (which they were not exactly understanding of. And by “not exactly”, I mean that they couldn’t have cared less…) or the cleaners that managed to wake me up on multiple occasions after i repeatedly pleaded them not to enter my private room. I guess I should have known when the cleaners were coming in the morning, considering the complete lack of any information given to me concerning the hostel
rules. (Not that I wanted to actually sleep, that would be ridiculous, right?) Also, I enjoy being stared at naked by complete strangers. It wasn’t any of these things, per se, but a grand
combination of all. Everywhere I turned, I was disappointed. But, when things go wrong you turn to the manager, right? Your one last hope for some sanity, respect and just plain human decency, right? Let’s just say I wouldn’t recommend that here. This so-called “manager” was quite possibly the worst addition to an already crap-tacular hostel. Rather than listening to anything I had to
say, he immediately became defensive and basically started insulting me. An interesting strategy when dealing with guests, I’ll be the first to admit. But a failure nonetheless. But in all fairness, since he didn’t want to sleep with me, what use would there be in helping me? (while throwing the lamest of attempts at almost any girl who walked through the door). What a joke. the treatment received in that hostel was one of the most humiliating and offensive in all my live traveling!
Highly overrated hostel, to say the least.
