  • Nothing much to complain, there are always things going on every night or day so you can socialize if you're a solo traveler like me. Location is also good in old city area where you can find hidden charms of the city. You might feel secure in the neighborhood compare to other areas in downtown which could be really sketchy. Free beer every night instead of free breakfast I also liked.

  • I usually don't stay in hostels, and this is not the hostel fault and it was at a full capacity when I stayed, but the whole dorm smelled just like bums smell after days of not showering. I'd say the hostel could help with a bottle of Febreze. Also I'd say a guy over 250lbs or over 6 feet will find the bunk beds just to small for them, a disclosure upon reservation would be nice. Other than that, great location, staff is nice, showers are private with curtains...

  • Besides the location is good, the hostel is very small. There is no elevator and the rooms are upstairs what makes difficult for people with luggage. There is no breakfast, no fresh water (instead of you can buy it) The beds are confortable but the lockers are too small and is impossible fit a carry on there, so you have to leave your stuff in the bedroom. Summing up, I think could be better considering the price!

    I'm sorry that you were disappointed with your stay. Most of our guests like that we're a small hostel with lots and lots of common space making it very easy to meet other travelers. Our lockers aren't huge, but they are large secure lockers, many with power outlets inside them so that you can charge your electronics securely while away. We absolutely have fresh water and ice available. I'm sorry that you didn't see this. We have free breakfast Friday, Saturday and Sunday (when you stayed)

  • Especially with this trip being my first time at a hostel, I had no reference of what to expect. The staff we extremely friendly, helpful, and accommodating. If there was ever any need they ensured they took care of it. There was consistently some activity or happening nearly each day sponsored by the hostel, whether it be a historical tour, bar crawl, or even cereal on the weekends, the 2+ week stay I had there couldn't have been easier on the lodging side. Thank you guys so much!

  • Early 30s professional in town for interview. Was traveling from NY and booked at 6 p.m. Arrived at 10:30 p.m. (same day) and was greeted with courteous staff, a clean room, and mostly quiet all-male roommates. My ONLY complaint was there did not appear to be an elevator. The next day, the staff allowed me to store my luggage while I went on my interview, and I returned to pick it up and change clothes before heading to the train. Will definitely do this again.
