How would anyone ever say this was good when I booked over the phone told it would be fine when I got there told oh..problem u don't fit in the age/race category of which we discriminate so ... We're totally booked, if u don't leave we'll contact the police !! idiots
I'm pretty shocked to read this, to be honest. I was 37 at the time that I booked. I also am a visible minority (Hispanic) and I was never told to go away or threatened and I showed up without a booking and got two nights.
I also was out late one night and came back at like 5 am in the morning no problem. That's really disappointing to hear, since I had a great time here.
I am disappointed to hear about this threatening message from Vagabonds hostel. In my opinion, the receptionist were not pleased to accommodate travellers who have not made a booking earlier. In most cases, it was impossible to stay at this hostel on weekends without any booking days earlier. I remember one italian guy working as volunteer in the reception and was quite helpful. Again sorry if they were not polite and treated you in an unrespectful manner.
