Overall, an amazing hostel! The staff was super friendly and helpful throughout the stay. The hostel also has a great policy for borrowing items. They require either an ID or money to borrow them and then you get it back once you return it.

Wow, where to begin...frankly, it was the worst hostel I've ever stayed in. I'll list the cons for you: bed bugs (bites all over our ankles), poor enforcement of rules (kids RUNNING through the halls and slamming doors at 1 am), paper thin walls, all ages were there from 11 year olds to 60 year old men, we had to make and take apart our own bedding, rude male front staff, NO security...I could go on. You also have to pay extra for wifi and lockers in your rooms. It's not worth it to stay here!

Bed bugs are a concern for all Hostels and Hotels. After 15 years of running our Hostels, we have systems in place to protect our Guests. First: the mattresses, bedding and rooms are treated so that if any guest should accidentally bring something with them, the bugs die. Second: If a guest reports a problem, we quarantine the room and have the experts fumigate the suspect area and surrounds. All guests are required to ID themselves at night as staying, when entering the security doors.
