    As a young, female solo traveller, I felt safe at all times! Staff were super friendly, common areas comfortable and inviting and the bagels in the morning are so good.

    Great hostel but the Wi Fi should be faster. Makes it hard to plan your day/book things from the hostel when it's at almost dial up speeds. Apart from that I loved it there

    I was in the new 6 bed female dorm and the beds were awesome; the pod style where the bed is completely enclosed is my favorite in hostels because it acts like a mini bedroom, with a light, outlets, and fan/AC. The facilities themselves were good, but WiFi SUCKED. I brought it up to the front desk and they blamed it on people streaming the first episode of GoT? Felt like a flimsy excuse to me, and WiFi is essential for me when traveling abroad (though luckily my data plan is covered in CA).

    Nice place. Great location. Walked everywhere. Loved the bed setup in the 6 bed doom. Comfiest hostel bed I have ever slept in. Room was a little cramped, but workable. Great experience overall.

    Loud music and you can hear noise from outside the rooms, bathrooms not the cleanest. Otherwise it’s in a very central location close to many stations and busses. They provide guides everyday for activities. I enjoyed my stay.

    It was overall fine. The bed was comfortable and the private bunk was perfect. Room was teeny and the bathrooms are also small. On a very busy party strip with a ton of rough sleepers. Bring earplugs for a weekend stay (I did, and slept fine)

    Lights from the hallway were so bright which made it difficult to sleep. The bar downstairs is great if you’re there but if you’re up in the room you can hear everything.

    We ended up leaving the Hostel after seeing the bedroom. the hostel smelled from (drug) smoking and there was no breathing air in the room. I could not believe the size of the room for six-people! It was not really a room, but rather 3 bunk-beds with a small space between them to get to the bed. I have never seen anything like this and I spent time in hostels around the world before... We literally could not stay there! Unfortunately I didn't get a full refund, which would have been the fair thing to
