Latest Review

" Went in expecting the worst—dirty bathrooms, beds I didn't want touching my skin, obnoxious people, and a general this-place-is-falling-apart-but-we-don't-care-because-you-poor-kids-need-it vibe. Not at ALL what I got. The staff was super helpful and willing to accommodate my group's weird checking-out hours and the facilities were clean and usable. Even the sheets and towels provided by the hostel felt clean enough to use without cringing. Definitely recommend. "
