          Booking #HG13d092119d0 (DEC 24-27, 2016) We have cancelled this booking and confirmed by this YHA reception that payment will be refunded in 5-7 working days. But then we do not receive any refund and several emails have been sent to the hostel but with no reply. Please advise who can I contact with to request for my payment return. The booking is refundable and all payment should be returned !
