  • very clean hostel in great location in Olde City. security code to enter hostel, cameras inside, but dorms have no locks. good wi-fi in the 4-bed dorm. no individual reading lights or charging outlets by each bed, and the dorm's main light switch is controlled from hostel's entrance. water pressure in shower was weak. 4-bed dorm is beside the kitchen, and right by the common area, so it can get noisy when people are talking loudly (as what happened one night when staff had friends over).

  • This has been the most engaging hostel I have stayed at in my entire 2 month trip of the USA. I felt as those I was staying at a friend's house from the moment I checked in. The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly and this warm atmosphere resonates throughout the entirety of the hostel. Location was fantastic, walking distance to attractions or bus stops if you're looking to head further out. I was able to cook my own meals in the kitchen and they also had hot showers!

  • Very old house, squeaky floor, pretty crowded. Noisy inside the room if anyone is talking in hallway.

  • The hotel is OK. the decoration is good. But it requires you to take off shoes wthout providing slippers. It's so cold to walk on floor especially during night. They don't have big lockers to deposit your luggage. They don't have computers. The bathroom is too small. When people are brushing teeth outside the bathroom, it's hard for another person to walk by no matter how tiny you are. There is no outlet for everybed. For those who stayed in the upper deck, they have to go up and downs to charge
