Disliked: Staff & service
Went to this hostel after everything was closing, booked another 3 nights when lock down announced. The General Manager (a spanish man) was the worst human being I have ever encountered, At time of checkin even though he had checked in people new to the hostel that morning he decided to not honour the Expedia booking. I asked why and at first he said the hostel was closing - when the people next to me said that he had checked in other people and that I had no where else to stay he said it was at his discression. I asked why he was not willing to help and he then got angry and said I have told you 5 times you are not staying here. I asked again for a reason and was told because I have decided. In a national crisis to be kicking someone out who has paid for a stay and has no where else to go is disgraceful. I will never go there again and feel their treatment I got was unbelievable at this time. I hope the GM rots in hell.
