Racially profiled at Clink 78.
This place is well located, big. clean, but it does have a racial profiling issue.You must beware of your belongings as the hostel, in my opinion, isn't safe.
It is my understanding, giving the interactions I had with the Hostel personnel that they could not care less for your damaged personal belongings. As a result, I would not recommend this Hostel and this decision if final.
