  • VERY CLEAN. At least the room I was in, it was clean. The lockers were a great thing to have. Felt very safe.

  • The rooms smelled like foot, housekeeping did not make my bed (they just did this once a new person came in), the heater was noisy and people kept shutting it down and the room ended up very cold. The outlet above my bed was broken, I reported it and the staff just told me to use the one from the bed below, wich was occupied already. The floor on the showers was too cold, one of the showers did not have hot water and towels were only replaced on demand. I got scabies in this hostel!!!

  • The hostel was excellent! The staff were more then accomodating. The hostel was pristine. Not any rubbish in sight. The hostel had great kitchen facilities, spotless rooms, tidy bathrooms. If I had any negative things to say? It would be the annoying wifi, and having to enter your room number almost every time you activated your iPhone. Secondly, if they had the facilities to play music while playing pool, that would be great. The location of this hostel is perfect. Overall stay: 10/10

  • Please, make paper towels avaliable in the bathrooms. Those blowing machines never quite get the job done and you can't dry your face using them.

  • Great hostel. Staff is great. The kitchen is awesome, and the daily activities are a good options for those who travel alone, or don't know what to do. It's a shame it doesn't include breakfast such us boston or washington HI, but I understand that because a lot of people stay in the hostel and it would not be comfortable if everybody is having breakfast on the hostel. I would definitively come back.

  • The hostel is very clean. Good location, right next to the subway station. The staff was friendly, but not the friendliest I've ever seen, some of them seemed to be impatient when I asked information about the city. The hostel activities can be improved too in order to get the guests to know each other. Good atmosphere. The food was excellent, but nothing is included in the price. I had an awesome stay and would stay there again.
