  • The location is great, the room was ok. It was a student dorm, so nothing special. The price was ridiculously high. When we arrived, they were overbooked! Fortunately, there as room available in the company's other dorm (Beaverbank Hostel), so we could stay there for the night and then move back on the second night. But Beaverbank is several miles from downtown. As only form of reimbursement they offered a larger room for the second and third night - a small compensation given all the trouble!

  • Iz said there are kitchen facilities but there was nothing to clean the dishes. Opposite the hostel is a disco and it was very, very loud during the night as well as you could hear all the noises of the other rooms.
