Latest Review

" Seriously, THE best hostel I've stayed in. Very clean rooms, nice bathrooms, real showers, it felt like home! The hostel was very secure, needing a key card to enter the building, your floor, and your room. Also, each bed has their own locker to secure your things in under the bed, provided you bring a padlock. The main floor has a pretty decent bar with good prices on drinks. Free dinner is also provided as long as you can get a seat. The food was great, and made for a good place to meet people "
