- “ the receptionist is so arrogant,not accomodating, can not understand us. the room is very small, and the bed has so many insects that bites us. we spend sleepless night. the next day, we left early at 8am, that's why. sorry to tell. . . . . . in their brochure, it's very nice, but in actual, so . . . . .very small room for 8 persons. we cannot move. ”

“ VERY DIRTY hostel. Сockroaches, fleas, bugs! The towels what you get in standard categories were used 1000 times before as well as linen in the room. The pics at the web site are not what you get at all, even at the luxury category. A/C in standards is not OK. If you want to wash anything it will be dry in the room in 3 days only. They want 100% money before you see all this hell in the room. Besides they want 100 USD extra as "deposit for the keys". NEVER GO THERE! THIS IS HOSTEL HELL!! ”
