          I am concerned about all the negative comments which refer to the cleanliness and lack of hygiene provided at this hostel. Are these the comments of a few or it it really as bad as they say ?? G travels uses this hostel for their tour groups as well. Can the management or anyone else provide a response please ? Thank you
