    This was my second hostel ever. Experience here was great. Clean and friendly environment. Plenty of space for both work and fun. I became a member after my visit here. Will try to make most of my trips with the HI organization from now on. Highly recommend. Thanks for the stay :).

    Staff and environment was very welcoming. They provide towels, sheets, and have hot showers. Bring your own soap and shampoo in case they don’t have extras.

    The location is absolutely wonderful - right by the river. The hostel during my stay was peaceful, which I enjoyed. Most of the other guests are young. So folks in the 30+ category might feel a bit out of place age-wise, but enjoy the non-party hostel vibe.

    Cool place to stay, next to a hiking trail and a lake that I really liked. What frustrated me is that they did not provide shampoo in the bathroom, so you need to bring your own.

    Great location.! This location sits right on the lake. The view is spectacular. Walking hiking running biking are easily accessible by being near the lake. Walking distance to the bus stop and local eateries. Uber and Lyft rides are low cost. The facilities itself had a great lobby, kitchen area, game room. We stayed in the female dorm and the beds were very comfortable surprisingly! There were two more beds than lockers in the room. A night light is NEEDED! Just the main light?
