Latest Review

" This place isn't too bad for what you are paying. The free wifi is excellent. The building is beautiful and the location is prime. However, it is a bit of a party hostel. Not too bad. I checked in at around 3pm and the receptionist was exceptionally drunk. Still got the job done mind. The other thing is there aren't many plugs in the common rooms and in the dorm I stayed in they were placed rather oddly around the room. I had to sit in some awkward places to charge my phone. "
