We travelled yesterday (8. March, 2024). we arrived about 80 minutes late. the toilet and the bus were dirty, the air conditioner froze people, there were no wi-fi, no seat belts, no sockets (as it was in the description), a security guard got on somewhere along the way and filmed every single passenger, totally illegal, never again...
