          We are trying to book a room with three beds for three women. May 5-11. Preferably with a private bathroom. If you have a four bed dorm room, that would be acceptable too. how can I book?

          Hola Ivan, Si recordamos tu estancia con nosotros, cabe señalar que tu estuviste con nosotros desde el 08 hasta el 18 de Mayo del 2014, tiempo durante el cual se te trato como en casa y disfrutaste del Bar, la parrilla y muchos momentos con nosotros y los demás huéspedes. Para finales de los días que estuviste con nosotros no pagaste tu estancia, incluso en esta situación tuvimos paciencia a que canceles pero nunca lo hiciste, incluso te permitimos dormir en el mueble de nuestra zona común cuando ya no podíamos seguir dándote una cama por falta de pago, y finalmente tuvimos que pedirte que te retires, debiendonos 4 días de hospedaje. Discúlpanos si en algún momento sentiste que se te acuso de robo porque nunca fue así, simplemente no podíamos mantenerte en nuestro local porque no podías pagar tu estadía. Espero puedas comprendernos. Saludos Cordiales.

          Hello Danielle. First of all we want to say sorry if you have a bad experience with us. We just check your review and we really don't understand a couple thing you say. First you say that your reservation was cancelled, I have understood that when you came the room was available for you as you reservation was made but you dont want to stay the two days you reserved, just the first day. Our employed explained to you that you can cancelled 2 days before your arrival, otherwise you lost your deposit, worth mentioning that the deposit and the card data has the browser you use, in this case HostelBookers. Second, you said that you 100 dollars. We don't receive any money from you and neither have your card data. Third, according politics of hostelbookers, we have to charge the full balance of the reservation even if you stay just one day because we lost the opportunity to offer that room to another person for blocked it for you, but our employed find a solution for you, you have to pay the full amount for one day in the room without counting the deposit. Apparently you misunderstood him or simply don't be agreed with that solution. We stay really confused with your review and if you please explain us what happend, we will really appreciate that. Sorry again for the bad time.
