    Great facilities at the hostel, very clean, easy to find, and centrally located. My only gripe was that the power sockets were not near the bed so I felt uncomfortable keeping my phone on charge while sleeping, and that there always needs to be a key card in the receptacle for the electricity to run - so if someone takes their key card out the lights switch off instantly. But a very good place, staff was helpful

    This hostel was great. The location was excellent and the staff was very friendly. This place met all expectations. The only downside is that the beds are a little squeaky

    The location was wonderful and everything in the rooms was clean. The front desk staff was amazingly friendly and helpful. We talked to Dennis who went above and beyond for us. He recommended a wonderful spot for dinner and when we asked him about tickets for an upcoming football game he called the ticket office for us and searched online to find us tickets. He and the rest of the staff we talked to were just wonderful people who made the experience so much better for us.

    Easily the cleanest and most well kept hostel I’ve ever stayed in (and I’ve stayed in a fair amount of hostels). Great location and a great staff too! My only complaint is that this place lacks atmosphere, but if you’re looking to chill out and relax for a night or two, then this is the place to do it.

    On a rainy day the balcony sunroof dosnt open/ isnt opened. Lift stops anytime. Hot water geyser stops anytime. Not worth the money.

    This hostel is alright. I was traveling on my own, as a 20something female, and I found it strange that I was put in a room with 5 men. I understand it’s mixed shared rooms, but I’ve stayed at many hostels before & this is the first time it’s happened. I asked to be moved to a room with more girls (I knew there were some with available beds) but the 2 receptionists (and a lady who looked like a manager or owner) said they can’t move me..It was strange and I did not enjoy my stay!
