Designed with boutique comfort: train car style bunks with pillow tops mattresses, plush king size pillows, in-bed outlets/lights/storage and privacy curtains, as well as individual full tile showers.

    Honestly everything was great. The location, the style, the staff, the facilities...all of it. The only thing that we didn’t love was the fact that at checkout you had to leave. As our flight was later in the day it would have been nice to at least be able to sit on the back patio and relax a bit before getting to the airport...

    My friend and I really enjoyed our stay at Ember. The location is great; pretty short walk to places to hang out and get food. I drove into town so I was happy about free parking. People there were super friendly and down to hang out. The hot tub was a great place to chill at the end of the day. Also, the rooms were awesome. Each bed had a privacy curtain, plenty of charging outlets, and a light. The storage situation was great and they had another locker room, too. Will definitely be back! :)

    Very affordable hostel located in what seems like a cool old house. They have newer showers and bathrooms. The bunks, while in shared rooms, offer a lot of privacy, as do the showers and bathrooms. They have a nice outdoor area, complete with a fire and hot tub. There are plenty of spots to take a seat and reat/work/study. There's also a nice little kitchen that seems to have everything you'd need to make a meal if you wanted to. The complementary coffee/tea/espresso is also a wonderful feature.

    My stay at Ember Hostel was a stellar one. What separates Ember from other hostels is the atmosphere they have created. It is one that encourages guests of all ages, nationalities, genders, etc to become good friends with one another. This is attributed to physical layout of the Hostel, such as the outdoor patio with the hot tub. As well as the staff, who all made sure that there job was not only to keep the hostel running, but to make each and every guest feel as "at home" as possible.

    This was an amazing hostel! Here's a run-down: super nice staff; clean + spacious bathrooms (they're individual rooms); nice + interesting lounge area(s); comfy and clean beds; lockers under the beds for your stuff and key cards for the doors; free coffee in the mornings. Loved staying here!
