    An awesome place! Very clean, organized, great location for sightseeing. All the people working here are absolutely amazing, with the true sense for hospitality and kindness. I was introduced to the place by Matthew, felt welcomed and informed and later on also got impressed by all other people who are making this place so warm and nice: Carolina, Torion, Roberto, Isaac, Lauren, Tana - thank you so much for making my stay here so pleasant :)

    Every stay at hostels is different, but this one made me feel like family. Crab boils, jam bands, spilled drinks... We all make it through another day. :)

    Clean Hostel cool staff but not really for Solo travel during covid. Most of the people are residents so that makes it less fun to do stuff.

    Great place overall. Areas of improvement: Upstairs shower - shower floor needs to be disinfected with better green/clean chemicals and procedures I experienced a pretty nasty infestation of fungus on the bottom of my foot. I caught it on the second shower instance. I only used the upstairs shower so it was definitely the source of the fungus. A prep/treatment us an anti-fungal cream is knocking it back. Common fungus apparently Kitchen refrigerator - way, way to crowded with "stuff".

    We liked the hosts on arrival, however they loved us to some annex house where there was a cat that lives in the house (something they should DEFINITELY tell people ahead of time), which got cat hair on our things. It was freezing cold and there were no heaters, many windows would not close throughout the hostel. The stairs in the annex house are insanely dangerous and steep and shallow, I am certainly they must not be to code.

    No clean towels 2 times when I was going to shower, no toilet paper, lots of drugs in facilities and the beds are too loose. Definitely not the best place I have stayed at. No one wears a mask inside. There were no free lockers.
