  • Terrible service, they were rude, unimformative, quick to frustration and quick to charge you extra. Seems to be a culture difference between the staff and the guests where the staff are openly rude to the guest and don't seem to have a problem with it. The facility has reports and photos of bed bugs online, the parking garage has limited spaces which they don't monitor. Boyfriend and I had to spend over 30 minutes looking for parking after a 12 hour drive. Not cool.

  • You had better change your website to explain why guests under 30 are not allowed to stay. You kept my security deposit after I had already completed the booking and I had to find another hotel at which to stay. Highway robbery.

  • This isn't exactly a hostel, but a motel where someone has put a lot of beds into the same room. There is no common room, activities or hostel athmosphere. That being said, it's an acceptable place to sleep for the price, clean with kitchen and bathroom in the room and a good location if downtown is where you want to be. Probably great if you're travelling in a goup, not so much for solo travellers. Oh, and very thin matresses.

  • The hostel was adequate and I didn't have any issues. There were no bugs or anything like that, but the sheets were a little bit lacking as there was only a fleece blanket, top sheet and pillowcase. Would have been nice to have a fitted sheet. Took a nap one of the days and found that the maid had cleaned around me and left new sheets on the bed with me, was a little weird, but funny more than anything. The best part of the hostel were the other tenants, made some great friends and had a blast.

  • BED BUGS, EVERYWHERE, LOTS OF IT. I fell asleep only for about 1 hour and woke up itching, I had over 40 bed bug bytes, and upon inspection, the bed was full of them. AVOID at all costs.

  • the service we received was ridiculous. I booked a room on the hostels site, It charged my card with the deposit, no where did I see there was an age restriction which apparently I was over the age limit by one year! I travelled for 2 hours from my other hostel only to be rejected at the reception. shockin policy , shocking service and compassion by the staff and in too of that I had to pay because apparently it was my mistake! Not to mention the fact that I was discriminated for my age by 1yr

  • I definitely enjoyed my experience at this hostel. Even though it may seem a little bit gloomy inside, I would recommend this hostel to my friends. I did not feel unsafe. Also, the location is very convenient. However, the hostel has an interesting smell, but it's not too bad.
