It was too cold...I like that it is unique among hostels and I did become friends with someone who staying in the dorm room with me...Paying a dollar to use a towel and when I used PayPal is unusual...One of the staff raised his voice at me because my grocery bag was on the table in the kitchen. Not appropriate.
