thank you for your comments. Daily we receive people from all over the world with different necessities, that's why we provide different rooms that accommodate to the different needs of each guest. We have common areas in order to keep a friendly environment and make our guests feel at home. For security reasons we also have private areas within the apartment and private rooms with locked doors to ensure security in the rooms. In the case of the apartment, this one has it's own private entrance separated from the rest of the hostel, so if guests don't feel like mingling, there's no need for them to be in the common areas of the hostel’s facilities. We strive to have trust worthy people around and we are on top of any suspicious behavior with 24/7 camera recording surveillance. We have never had any security issues at our place. The facilities are currently undergoing some remodeling inside the rooms and other areas so that's why some pictures might need to be updated, currently working on it! Looking forward to take this into action as soon as possible for future guests.
