We arrived at this hostel late at night, (around 11pm) there were groups of people outside and I thought "oh it must be a very social hostel", when we went inside there was a huge line of people waiting to be checked in, and I then realised the people outside we're waiting to be checked in too. The staff were VERY rude and weren't rushing to check us in considering how late and tired everyone was! For every individual group it took the staff about 15 minutes to check them in (including us). I didn't understand why it was so hard for them to take our names, check us off and give us the keys? We just wanted to get in bed but had to wait over an hour to be checked in! The group in front of us didn't have to pay an extra fee for not being a member of some hostel group thing because they had waited so long, yet we were charged this extra fee and asked why we still had to pay because we'd waited long too, and the receptionist 'Cherif' was extremely rude and patronising, to us and was NOT welcoming at all. He was dressed unprofessionally and the whole thing just seemed like a joke.
