  • Loved the vibe. Wonderful, curteous staff and the room (4 bed dorm) was spacious and clean. Bed was comfortable. Bathrooms were fine, remembering that this is a hostel, not a hotel. Would certainly stay here again.

  • It's very special living in jail. But it's not very convenient. Probably because of the structure of the building, the wifi was poor. The breakfast was good ( toast, jelly, butter, juice, milk, cheerios, fruit!!). Every morning there is free tour to explore the jail.
