A few things could stand to be fixed in the hostel to make it a nicer experience for guests and are as follows: -Bathroom sink faucets are loose -Showerheads need a fixture to secure them against wall -Second floor hallway has loose bricks underneath the carpet
When I visited a week ago in October, I was the only person in this nice and spacious hostel. The owner was very friendly and made me feel at home.
While I understand the hostel is located in a dense residential neighborhood, closing the common area at 10:00 P.M. kills the communal spirit. It should stay open all night. All the great hostels stay open 24/7 in the lounge.
