5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Great facilities. Location is better if you are driving, but you can still walk to downtown. Lovely staff!

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Disorganized Space and Operations
Some travelers stay here longer term and have their things in the kitchens and rooms. The hostel doesn't ensure the kitchens and rooms remain organized, nor ensure that beds are marked for new travelers. There was a conflict in my room because staff gave someone new a person's bed who had been there.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The hostel is ok overall, however the dorm room was very hot during the day since it faces the sun in the afternoon and has very little ventilation.
