Very helpful staff. Clean and safe rooms. Great deal all around. No parking in the area, which is difficult if you're bringing backpack or luggage. My room had 8 bunks. Some people were quiet & considerate in the room. 2 men in the room turned on lights, talked and made loud, lengthy phone calls while others were trying to sleep. Typical hostel behavior, but it would be nice for the hostel to have shared room courtesies posted.

Excellent location for museums, tour bus stop, grocery stores, restaurants. Nice kitchen! Good security, everyone gets a personal entry code for the combo locks for each dorm and for each room. I had two roommates in a four-bunk female dorm. Met other nice people too! Towels are rented for $5 per stay. Breakfast is about $8.20 with lots of variety and GOOD coffee included. There is good storage for luggage on your departure day.

Overall location is why you would stay here. It’s smack dab in the middle of downtown. The wifi did not work in my room, they were having issues with the radiators while I was there and the kitchen was overrun with “free” food. The staff was lovely and accommodating. The lounge area is nice but closes at 11 which was a bummer since it was the only place I got reception. I would stay here again.
