Hi Majid, Thank you for leaving us a review! We are glad that you enjoyed your stay in our hostel and that you found the Wi-Fi fast. Our team works really hard to keep the hostel clean and tidy so we are glad that this showed. We have hire towels available at reception for a $5 charge. They are not included in the price of the dorm beds as most of our guests have their own towels and it would impact the cost of the rooms. Enjoy the rest of your travels! Cheers The Global Team
