Very nice location and staff! But many stairs to go


honestly baffled as to why this place has such low ratings... i've stayed at lots of hostels throughout europe and asia, and this is one of my favorites. just the fact that they have a huge kitchen/multiple refigerators ranks HIGH. this place just feels like a home... because it is a home. cons are...yeah, the basement is creepy and they don't have lockers in all the dorm rooms (but there are lockers available elsewhere) and internet is a bit slow in places, but for the homey vibe this is an A+


A very nice place to stay.

A while away from downtown, but next to the metro. Apparently they're parking lot was torn down (should probably update on website) but the town it was in was cute, lots of coffee shops and restaurants, farmers markets on Sundays and lots of stuff going on. Staff didn't seem to be very informed about much, it's an older crowd and not so much a party vibe. Games room downstairs, but too cold to hand out there and some very old televisions. Not bad, for $30 I would have liked a bit more.
