    I had an incredible experience with this cozy, culturally rich, clean, and accommodating hostel! I found the neighborhood surrounding this building is very safe during the day, filled with cafes and grocery stories that were conveniently nearby. I am a lover of music, and this hostel provides music studios in the basement for people to practice the drums, guitar, and sing. Literally the best. Also, the restrooms are spotless CLEAN!!!! They provided tons of blankets and towels. 10/10!

    I have never stayed in such a clean hostel! They do a full housekeeping service everyday, with fresh sheets and towels and a wonderfully made bed. The kitchen facilities are in the room which was really convenient and the ensuite bathroom was great too. It was a very hot weekend and there was no air-conditioning but other than that it was fantastic with really friendly and flexible staff. Parking was very expensive but that's what you'd expect from a downtown location I guess. A great hostel!

    The hostel was clean overall my biggest issue was inconsiderate roommates, who don’t have any regard toward you sleeping or laying down. They cut lights on and are very loud. That’s the most unenjoyable thing about my whole stay!

    Very clean bathrooms, very comfy large bunk beds. Highly recommend. Individual lamps by beds have a very bright standby light which need to be covered up (use a sock!)

    Interesting building catering to a mix of backpackers and locals. Bunk beds were metal, with a decent thickness of mattress. Area is walk-able as long as you have your wits about you.

    I've never been anywhere quite like this. The staff is friendly, as are the regulars that live there and/or pass through often. Something that makes the place extra special is the fact that it attracts musicians of all walks of life. I went to pub trivia one night (an activity led by the hotel staff) and all the other guests, myself included, played an instrument. 2 guys from Barcelona (one a new wave and disco fan) jammed with a Danish metal enthusiast the next day.

    Booked as free parking was listed - only to find I had to pay to use public carpark nearby. Was clean, nice staff, complimentary fruit and filtered water. No lockers.

    I attempted to cancel the reservation unsuccessfully and didn’t show up in the hostel and they still charged it on ny card when I only used that credit card for making a 10usd reservation. I didn’t provide my credit card information for that. I don’t know the hostel and it might be pretty cool, I’m just unhappy with this situation.
