Wow! That sucks! Sorry to hear that it didnīt work out for you
They are hooked up with Hostelworld.com and hostels.com which means that they can be booked throught the Travelpunk.com hostels reservation system. Hostel owners have to meet the strict requirements of hostelworld in order to stay on board with their booking engine.
The only way of reserving your room is through a credit card, whether on the booking engine or through their own website. Are you sure they donīt take credit cards? Could it be that their system was down during the time that you stayed there?
Has anyone else had a similar experience with this hostel?
