  • Best hostel I've ever been to. Staff was so kind in a genuine way, very helpful and informative. Cleaning lady does her job so well, the bathrooms were immaculate. All and all great vibe!

  • This has been one of the best hostels, I have stayed in so far. It was very clean and the staff was super helpful. The breakfast was better than average and additionally they offered free dinner 3 times a week - super tasty! The only minor thing was that the toilets and showers have been rather limited, so that at peak times in the morning (around eight, nine o'clock) you sometimes had to wait- but only 5 to ten minutes usually. apart from that everything was great and a very nice location.

  • Hostel is located on Broadway, basically red light district which strip club etc. But toilets/showers are great being in a separate room, having piracy. Good atmosphere and good common room. Good Hostel would stay again 4/5

  • We had a wonderful experience at the hostel, had a great vibe and everyone was very friendly. Neighbourhood was well located and we felt safe walking around. It was nice that they had a coupon for parking (garage was a little far from the hostel but walking distance). Clean, safe and everyone respected being quiet at night, but lots of activities available if someone wanted to join.

  • Green tortoise was great. The staff are great and location is perfect. In walking distance to most things. Breakfast is good. Fresh fruit, oats, bagels and eggs. Free dinners are served three times a week and they are pretty good too. There is a variety of people from young people to families but we had a great time. It is pretty expensive for a hostel but the location made up for it.

  • Stayed here for a 5 day trip away from Canada. Its in a great location close to transportation, food places, downtown. The staff are wonderful and helpful. Private bathrooms and showers are a plus. Free breakfast daily. There is a big common room and lots of guests. The facilities are somewhat outdated but this is all part of the charm I think. The facilities could be a little cleaner but by no means disgusting. They offer lots of tours and stuff but its out of city stuff. Overall a great hostel
