Was very pleasantly surprised by the quiet of my room – the hostel itself seemed noiseless, and the neighborhood also seemed noise free. Very restful. My bed was also was also very comfortable.

Excellent wifi connection & location was on point. Room had an old cigarette odour lingering which was gross. Also the extra charge for not becoming a "member" was off-putting.

I was graciously welcomed and served and enjoyed the low key atmosphere of the hostel. Have been before and will return again.

A very safe economical spot for my 2,2 year old daughter and myself. Pops had the lower bunk with more space. Room was clean, mattresses comfortable. I would stay there again !

Great hostel and even better location- close to the beach and downtown without having that big noise from the city. The room and the bathroom were clean and compfi. Just the noise from other rooms can be heard pretty easily. Great choice of breakfast and huge and clean kitchen. We will be back in May.

Everything was extremely old - the mattress, carpets, sheets. The women's washroom across the hall was also creepy, as it was very old and abandoned since we were the only ones in that area. It felt like I was in a modern day version of the movie Psycho. I've stayed in many hostels and this was the only one that creeped me out. The cleaner poked his head into our room even though we had hung a "do not disturb" sign and I yelled at him to not come in. Not cool.

Great, quiet hotel with good breakfast, solid security, friendly and fun staff. The bedding was fresh, hot water in clean showers, and we got the best recommendations for nearby restaurants. We will be back.

I liked the atmosphere, like staying in a college dorm. This place has so much such as a kitchen, fridges for cold food storage, dining room, entertainment, info for things to do and hot water for shower. It was my first time staying at a hostel and I enjoyed it very much. I would stay here again.
