Only stayed for a night during the Women's World Cup. The location is excellent. It's walkable form anywhere in the city you would want to go. The shower areas and bathrooms need serious updates. The breakfast was good and parking was easy. Staying in an old jail cell was actually really cool. They left the bars on the cell doors and the windows, so still feels like the real thing. Overall, the stay was pretty decent for the price.


Loved my stay. This was my first experience at a hostel, and I recommend it to everyone.
