          Hello Greenings, just to let you know, we replaced the kettle as soon as someone came into the office and let us know about it. We always have spare utilities in storage. I find your comments referring to other customers as "inmates" quite disrespectful.

          Sounds good to me. The only thing is, I am one of 'the elderly' of whom your guest, above, complained. I stayed in a back packers in Belgium last year and they told me that I wouldn't be able to return because of my age. It hadn't occurred to me that my rights might be diminished due to my age. I'm still a vital, curious, interested person, who can offer sparkling repartee and a flash of wit here and there. However, if age is a concern, or undesirable, I'd like to know before I book. I wouldn't have written thus, but as you ask........... I think your hostel looks ideal for my purposes. K
