  • It was quiet good location. very near with downtown, but the name was international hostel?kinds of different name so at first I couldn't find, but fortunately, I had the address of this hostel.. I stayed in 8 girls dormitory. the shower and room was not clean... hairs, dirt... but bed was okay. and most strange thing was the "price." it was different from the price on the website. I thought it will be 28$ but it was 33, because I'm not member of Hi hostel.They should state clearly about this.

  • Was good but had to pay more than i was quoted when i got there. I had to pay an extra 50 dollars. so the prices on the websites aren't right cause they'll tell you that and make you pay more.

  • Stayed only 2 nights but didn't seem the most social hostel. However The Cavern is cool, the free breakfast is decent, rooms are good, clean and have a private bathroom. Location is great

  • They advertised lower prices online and then I was charged & something like $10 extra per day for not being a member. I wish they would include that in then online listing because I had previously found a few places at same price or cheaper

  • First time to stay in a hostel and greatly enjoyed it. Although I didn't stay there the whole time, I was pretty pleased with the bedding and the bar downstairs.

  • It's a bit expensive if you're not a HI member, you will pay 5$ more per night, but the location is super cool and so is the hostel! Great free breakfast and the showers have shampoo/conditioner dispenser, I loved that! There's a locker room where you can leave your luggage. You can also rent a bike but then, again, there are different prices for non-members. The only bad thing I have to say about this hostel is that the music coming from the cavern was too loud, but we're young!

  • The bathrooms could use some improving, and the tea/coffee setup in the common area was a bit lacking, but things felt organized and clean, and the staff were really great. The included breakfast was quite nice!

  • The staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. I arrived late at night and there was some trouble with my original room. As a replacement I had a perfectly normal folding bed - but I got the night for free! The next day, I was upgraded to a nicer room than booked, also for free. Breakfast is made to order, fresh and delicious. Lots of choices! The rooms are a bit small, but there is plenty of common space. And the girls in my second room very super friendly. The hostel is really downtown. Great!
