          Me puede explicar alguien por qué después de dos años el manager se digna en contestarme? Y otra cosa, todavía recuerdo con horror dicho hostel y no volvería jamás. Las excusas del cansancio de los viajeros son bastante simples y lo que viví allí era fruto de la desorganización, la dejadez y la mala conservación de las instalaciones. Ni más ni menos. Además de qué me sirve que me respondan dos años después, para tener pesadillas??
