I stayed in this hostel a few days ago. I slept in a dormitory which includes a locker for everyone. The lock and the key was provided by the hostel. Unfortunately i used the locker to secure my things. In the Night somebody stole nearlly all of my money from the closed locker! So somebody must have used a second key or anything possible to open the locker and close it after the robery without any notice. Next morning when i realised the robery i talked to the reception and they called the police.The hostel and especially the owner has not been cooperative or helpful in any kind of way. I tried to talk to them several times to get my money back because it was stolen when the locker was closed and there was nothing more i could do to secure my things but they told me that they are not taking any responsibility for this and that the locker is only a service from the hostel and nothing more.
