Big place with some permanent residents. Some of the staff were not as helpful as they could have been. Kitchen is just a microwave and a toaster. Free coffee and popcorn were welcome and pool table and reading area were welcome while we killed time in the blizzard! The WiFi was good. 10 mins from subway and 30 mins walk to town.
The rooms were less inviting than your average college dorm room. Very minimalist, not very comfortable. The door wouldn't open or shut completely without a lot of effort. The bathrooms were beautiful when we arrived but a complete mess in the morning. Overall, not the best experience in a hostel I've had, but I've definitely had worse. You really get what you pay for, I suppose. It's cheap because there isn't much to it at all. No full kitchen, but a good location so food isn't ever far away.
