En general mi experiencia fue muy buena Giorgos fue comprensivo y flexible cuando tuve que modificar mis fechas de estancia.
En el hostel se puede sentir una muy buena vibra, todos incluidos los huéspedes son muy amables, es fácil que te sientas en casa, hay 3 gatitos y una perrita que se roban tu corazón. Tess 🐕sin duda es la reina del lugar. El area de oportunidad a mejorar puedo concluir que es la comunicación, a veces no era muy claro lo que se tenía que hacer, por otro lado considero que no había suficiente tiempo libre para explorar ciudades cercanas ya que solo había un día libre.
