Latest Review

" Horrible customer service, very rude about travel plans. They nickel and dime you for every single thing - wifi, bedding, leaving luggage at the hostel, not checking in during their narrow hours. Also, beware of the 7 DAY cancellation policy! I ended up being charged for a full night that I didn't even stay there. "
