Yatin

Yatin

Receptionist

If Yatin is not at the gym to prepare for the next Mr Universe competition, you find him most likely at the pool table philosophizing about the rules of pool and whether you should finish the game by putting the black ball in the opposite pocket.

Paton

Paton

Hostel Manager

You will meet Sebas at reception most likely in the mornings. He’s from Argentina but - for an unknown reason - he is learning German 🙂 Probably to secretly understand instruction from the trainer of the best team in the world...you guessed it, his favorite sport is football. Apart from that...well he likes red wine.

Receptionist

Chris from Thailand, whose real name is unpronounceable to the rest of mankind is part of the eternal battle with Yatin of who is the better pool player.
