          I could not find a number on the website but I stayed here at Serena this past Thursday till Saturday and I think I may have left my straightener in the bathroom in the hostel... :( just want to know if there is a chance that it was found or not? Thank you so much

          Would this hostel be appropriate to stay as a family, a couple with a small child? Is it quiet at night? We would rent a private bungalow. Is it a party hostel?
