    Not any Zen hostel ever”

    First all I have so many complaints about Zen hostel. Bad customer service ever. I cancel a booking by mistake and they refuse to rebook it again and I needed to pay for another room. When I ask a refund for one of my bookings they said no, even though they knew it wasn't supposed to cancel it. The sad part Is that Zen hostel room are not even the owner, they are just the advisement company that have many hostel under their name. The shower wasn't clean. After taking a shower I was smelling like sewage.
