We were surrounded by restaurants of all different cuisines. Breakfast is served every morning from 7–10. Hostel guests gather in the kitchen downstairs to eat and […]

The sheer amount of people there […]

After one 16-hour flight, a missing contact lens, and a whole lot of turbulence, we finally arrived in the mother land!
