  • 1. We requested a 4-bed room dorm online and received a 6-bed dorm at arrival where we had to share. 2. There was no key to the room - no security. 3. We got robbed with knives just in front of the hostel (empty creepy street, SO "safe" according to the staff) and they didn't let us borrow the phone to block our stolen credit cards - an hour later they borrowed us the phone and we had to pay for the call. 4. Breakfast was included but it wasn't served in the time they promised. 5. No WI-FI.
