Hey all. Im a PhD student in London, and I was travelling to Venezuela in February. I booked with DAL BO HOSTEL for 5 nights in Caracas. The manager wrote me a very aggressive email cancelling my reservation based on my nationality!!. Im Colombian. (he argued several Colombians booked and didnt show up) Although we exchanged several emails, and I insisted I was travelling, he was always aggressive, and it was obvious he was uncomfortable with me just for the fact that im Colombian. In the end without any explanation he unilaterally decided to cancel my booking!! (I have all the emails to prove this). This xenophobic behaviour should not be expected from a hostel where so many people from all the world meet. Although most of the people travelling are European and American, I would encourage everyone not to sponsor the racist behaviour of this hostel. Please choose another option and let people know. I was very disturbed!
