1/5 Terrible

Travelled with group
Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities
With it being a hostel we weren’t expecting 5 * service but we definitely didn’t expect having blood splashed all over the windows, carpet and bed frames. The receptionist had told us someone a week before had smashed the window in and was taped up so he did give us some money off for that but he didn’t include the room would be covered in someone’s else blood. Very disappointing and wanted to complain but there wasn’t anyone at the reception when we were checking out.
