    I had a great stay at the hostel. The staff was very friendly and helped me out with anything that I needed. I would recommend staying at the hostel since it is in a great location.

    The location was awesome, especially for SXSW. The staff were very welcoming, and the beds were very comfortable. The cleanliness of the place was pretty awful though. I won’t specify what I found in the bathroom, but after seeing that I tried to use restrooms out of the hostel as much as possible. If the cost was WAY less, I might give it another try, but all in all pretty subpar hostel experience.
