  • Very friendly and helpful staff. Delightfully large towels. Friendly environment overall among the guests. The bathrooms were accommodating and the showers were great. My mattress wasn't the best -- I could feel the springs -- but overall it was a great experience.

  • Rooms were TINY. Originally paid to reserve a bed in an 8 bed co-ed room. Was told I got "bumped up" to a room with 6 dudes stuffed in 3 bunk beds in a 12' x 8' room with lockers occupying only free space. This hostel is not as social as it looks. Open mic night cancelled because d.j. didn't show up. Candy machine ripped me off for $1.50 and desk refused to reimburse, even though the hostel owns the machine. Kitchen is okay. Showers clean. Located in heart of V.C. entertainment district.

  • Staff was friendly and very helpful, facilities were well beyond what I was expecting for 33$ a night. I felt safe the entire time I was there, and felt no insecurities leaving my luggage there during the day. Location is perfect, very central. Saved lots of money with the included breakfast that The Beaver puts on. I'll definitely stay at this hostel again, and recommend it to friends.
