  • We loved the hostel! The staff was amazing with the exception of one individual. They had overbooked the dorms and accommodated us by giving us a private room without an upcharge. Great atmosphere with a very cool little speak easy on the first floor. My only complaint would be no drinking water available in the kitchen.

  • I only stayed one night and thought everything was great, super - until I was checking out. Then: a person was doing 'routine' pesticide application which was pretty invasive to me and I hadn't been notified. I tried to get out of there quick but nobody was at the desk (I had a deposit coming back.) I felt pretty ill the next couple hours. If there is going to be poison applied, inhabitants must be informed, especially if they are inside at the time. It may not affect you, but it may affect othr

  • Location is great and rooms are clean. Rooms facing the alley were super noisy by the trash collector and the drunkies.

  • I was there for a conference nearby. Was a short walk to everything: Hotels, food, nightlife, the river, the bus which runs to and from the airport. Staff was easy going. Breakfast was very good. Just an easy, laid back place to stay at a fraction of the price of the other hotels. The five days I was there, I never had to catch a cab or anything. The Firehouse was so convenient.

  • There was the same hair on the shower wall for the three days I was there. Makes me think the showers weren't even checked once a day for cleanliness.

  • Great place! Surprisingly clean. The walls are thin but they provide ear plugs. The speakeasy bar was dope! I will visit again.
