  • Great vibe with the pub downstairs and the common space, but rooms are incredibly basic, lockers are old, and WILL wake you up every time they open (squeaky), not particularly comfortable beds/pillows. Very basic hostel experience - would only suggest if travelling solo to save a few dollars, or if you want to attempt to meet people.

  • If you like to look cool at all costs this is the place for you. Otherwise, KEX is not the best hostel to stay at. The aesthetic is best described as "prison chic". Lighting in the dorm rooms are not bright enough, the communal areas are not the most conducive to meeting new people, the shower are communal, and the cleanliness of the place is mediocre because there is no management for all the snow that gets treaded into the building.

  • Great vibe and atmosphere, clean dorms and bathrooms. Highly recommend staying here, especially gor the central location and ease of access for tour buses.
