  • I wish it was warmer. With cold weather it would have been nice to return a hostel that had heat inside. Also, I did not like when taking a shower and getting a blast of ice cold water instead of the hot water I was using.I understand they were doing some renovations during the day, but in the evening more attention could have been made to make the hostel more comfortable to the guests. I did enjoy the waffles! I currently could not recommend this hostel as it is currently being managed.

  • The hostel was in an excellent location. Did not have any problems getting there or back. It was great to be able to leave baggage in the hallway for later pick up on departure day. There were for sure improvements that could have been made however it seemed that the hostel was working hard to fix the problems. The mattresses sucked in the bedroom we were in.

  • The staff was nice, the hostel was at a 20 mn walk from the Capitole. It rained so we did not really enjoy the rooftop. The idea of the pancake mix is good but the pans are old and your pancakes often finish fried in oil or burnt :/ The beds were good.

  • No mirror, no table, no chair, no private locker in the room. The bed was old, not springy anymore and the spring touched my backbone when I slept. The doors were creaky. The nearest bathroom was not tidy and no mirror. The kitchen was OK. The storage "room" after checking out is not a room, but just a space, where everyone can freely see/touch the luggages there. The location was not bad.

  • Sarah was amazing, so accomodating, helpful, friendly and hospitable! She gave me tons of advice on how to enjoy my short trip. Each room has a lock with a code you need to know, same for the entrance door, so it felt pretty safe. My female dorm was very clean and well maintained, with lockers, enough space and a window. I saw the housekeeping taking good care of the bathrooms cleaning, and in general I felt it was cleaner than your average hostel. Cool rooftop patio and convenient location.

  • Though the hostel was very concerned about street shoes not being worn to keep the floor clean, my room (a 6-bed female dorm) was very dusty on all surfaces. It wasn't clear how to make the free pancakes that are offered (no signage that I could see). The shower had almost no water pressure, and sink was so small I could barely wash my face. The only time I saw a staff member was when I checked in.
