The staff were very nice and even arranged for our laundry to be done with the hostel's. The main downside was the incredible noise, which didn't allow for anything except disturbed napping all night. It's not just the cathedral bells, which are across the street; it's the traffic under the window--Harleys, trucks, city buses, SUVs, cars, garbage trucks. We had to move a street over, which due to the mass of the buildings in-between, it was silent at night, and hardly more expensive.
The main strenght of the Pogo Hostel is that it is very well situated. The staff is pretty friendly and the room are clean. There is no real downside to the hostel, if you're looking for something nice and pleasant, this is the place.
route to hostel provided on the website is not clear!!!!!!!
I felt really disappointed by Pogo because with a little fixing it could be perfect, like the location is. The negatives are that the bedrooms felt a little bit unclean and some very dodgy electrics going on... but the main thing were the bathrooms. The showers were dirty and grotty and leaked all over the floor so as soon as someone had showered, it was a muddy mess. And shower after shower?! Hmmmm. The hostel was advertised as private bathroom too. There are no private bathrooms.
