Value For Money














If I could give a lower rating than 2, I would. Even though I booked a non-refundable ticket, I was unavailable to travel due to the global pandemic. All airlines, other hostels and Airbnb gave me a refund or at least a travel credit. Even though I normally would "suck it up", this case is different. Apparently, they would rather me travel on a plane and stay in a room with 18 strangers and potentially get COVID-19 and spread it to their own staff so they could make a buck. Profit over ppl.
