    The hostel on 3rd was a great stay. One of the cleanest hostels I’ve ever stayed! The staff was polite, very helpful, and welcoming. The breakfast is self serve and it really brings everyone together in the morning. The location is right in the heart of downtown, surrounded by shops, bars and restaurant. I definitely enjoyed my time here and would definitely stay again. I highly recommended this hostel especially because it’s about half the price of its competitors in the area.

    The staff here is amazing! Very friendly and knowledgeable, willing to help out in any way they can. Very secure hostel in a great area, close to great night life and public transit options. Many great sites in walking distance or a short bus or Uber away.

    Pros: Lots of showers/toilets. Cleaned daily. Kitchen has pretty much everything you need to cook. Super friendly staff. Great lounge area to relax and play pingpong/watch tv. Good wifi connection. Few minutes walk to the station. Cons: One (or two?) of the showers have pretty low water pressure which I considered unusable. With only one non-staff fridge, you may have to fight for storage space. 10/10 would stay again!

    It's not a 5 stars but it's really good when you in a budget. The staffs are fun to be around with and they all seem like families than workers. I wouldn't mind trying again since it's close by the convention. The place old and raggedy but it has characters. I would recommend it to everyone who's traveling and trying something new. 👍

    Staff were super helpful when my bed was accidentally taken by another guest. Also one of the staff, I think their name was Lenny, was great to chat to and helped make the experience here more enjoyable. Lockers are a bit small but roommates were good so no real concern about losing belongings or theft etc. Free breakfast was dope and got to meet other travellers. Close to city centre and supermarket, Lenny also gave me his discount card which was great! Great location friendly staff, good vibes

    Really enjoyed my stay here. The location is good for the trolley and bus services - and right around the corner there are a lot of really good bars, clubs and restaurants. There was a casual, laid back feel in the hostel with a real mix of different types of people. Not the most modern of hostels but it has everything you need. The kitchen is well equipped and there is breakfast provided in the form of coffee, cereal and pancakes.

    Disorganized staff. Entirely clueless. Asked for a receipt for a cash deposit, they claimed it would be emailed, lies. I did get it back though. The bathrooms all smell like urine. There were inadequate outlets. The area is fantastic, however. Everything easily walkable. Reasonable parking rates, too(if you can find a spot)

    The staff were friendly, and the hostel was mostly clean. In my room, people were in and out, talking, and leaving the door open letting light in until about 1:30am. The hostel felt crowded, with very little common space. The social atmosphere felt closed and guarded, rather than open and welcoming. Also, you cannot check in between 12 noon and 4pm. The list of rules also feels a bit strict.
