“ Excellent location, easy walk to the Falls or downtown and easy parking. The atmosphere was mediocre at best. Decoration was sparse, cold and modern and not terribly comfortable. The DVD system didn't work. The bedrooms were also sparsely decorated with uncomfortable mattresses. Locker space was good though, two lockers per bed. The staff was helpful with tourist information, but wasn't all that warm and friendly. Overall: great location, adequate but mediocre and unremarkable acomodations. ”
Ouch! Well, you have some points. I haven't done much decorating, in the two years since purchasing this 140 year old building the focus has been on renovation and that's where we focus all the effort. It's a ten year plan to restore this building to splendor we are sure it held in it's early history. As for atmosphere there's another area we kinda leave up to guests... everyday it's a new personality and as an owner operator who has literally only seen one hostel, I'm always learning from guests. As we grow and develop we will begin to improve the atmosphere, no inspiration to be a party hostel but a fun cool hostel I think that's possible. NOTE ON THE DVD PLAYER.... We have to switch cables from the cable box to the DVD. If you want to watch a movie, we'll first show you where the secret stash of movies is and I will switch the cable over for you. I will need to put a sign out. But thank you for the constructive criticism. You have provided plenty for me to improve on.
