DO NOT STAY HERE EVER!!!!!! The manager, who is named peter (but lied and said his name was zack) stormed into our room screaming and verbally assault me and my friends before threatening us with violence and kicked us out. (He chased us out of the hostel with a pot of boiling water). I'm no expert by he seems extremely mentally unstable. We received no explanation for why we were kicked out and did not get our money back for the extra night.

Hostel not cleaned very well. Bed sheets & pillowcase changed after someone checks out but I watched the hostel manager/possibly owner remake beds with same duvet cover as previous guest & his idea of vacuuming was to spot vacuum with a handheld mini vac, plus room had cockroaches. With regard to the manager/owner, he would just wander into the dorm without knocking & he was very rude about departed guest, describing one as a "Dutch c#*t" & "I hope you die you Dutch a#*ehole". Very unpleasant!!

This is a really nice hostel located near the greyhound bus stop and easy to get to from the train station. The hostel is quiet, tidy and has good cooking facilities. The staff were really friendly and very helpful. I would definitely stay here again.
