The fact that the hostel is religious is kinda funny, but it wasn't a problem even though I'm not christian. The only downside of this is that they don't allow you to drink alcohol inside, which I think it's completely unnecessary, but ok. The staff...More

saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to
