This is the hostel. Four years on, I still can remember its name although I have only stayed there for one night before I flew to London. It is just an ordinary hostel with reasonable price and friendly staff, and I would recommend you to stay there if I have not encountered that thing. I was staying in a dormitory room meant for 4 people, with two double level beds. When I reached there, three places had been taken, and one at the top of one bed was given to me. I saw a girl inside the room and we talked for a while. She appeared to be needing money because she has been travelling for 3 months without bringing much money into the country. Her bed was on the lower level of the bed which is same as mine. At the night, the phone in the room rang from the reception looking for the girl. 5 minutes later a male came in, they started introduciing each other and then guess what, doing business, right under my bed. The worse thing was the bed was quite old so it was shaking heavily and soundly. The whole thing went on for more than an hour and I couldn't sleep until about 2 a.m. I was worrying there could be some other crime going on there and especially cautious with my passport. So I didn't sleep well. The next day I checked out in the early morning and told myself I would never stay in this hostel again.
