    This place is a gem. My friends and I needed an inexpensive place to stay near the river area (but only 15 from the beach). Beds were very comfy. House was clean and well organized. The other people staying were considerate. We walked to the bars in restaurants in less than 10 minutes. There is a lock on the front door and then in the bunk rooms where you stay. Nice part of town. Felt safe. Easy check in. Highly recommend!!!

    The hostel is located in Downtown Wilmington. Ovwrall, it is good. It is a self-served hostel. It means that you have to check in online. Then you would get a entry code for the front door and another code for your room. They do have breakfast, but you have to cook by yourself. It is not made ready.

    I had the best time in this hostel! It is perfect in every way. A huge thanks to Cody and Saul - the staffs at this hostel. I met some of the most amazing people here. The people, the city and the hostel holds a special place in my heart. I highly recommend this hostel for anyone who is visiting the city. It is close to the beach and downtown. Perfect location.

    Stayed last minute when some dates got mixed up on a trip and I LOVE THIS PLACE. Wish I could stay longer man. I was traveling solo as a woman and felt totally safe. Beds are super comfortable and atmosphere is amazing. They have a nice lil hangout spot out back where everyone sits & chats. Only a short walk to downtown & the river walk. A steal for the price

    Located just a few blocks from downtown Wilmington, this gem is hidden in plain sight. The beach is a short 15-20 minute drive through the coastal town, the time flies by with the windows rolled down and the sea breeze streaming in. Evening strolls on the boardwalk, to dinner, or for an afternoon ice cream run can all be achieved on foot. There are a few bikes on the property available for use as well. The manager was kind, accommodating and provided an unforgettable experience.

    Perfect downtown location, just a ten minute walk to the river walk. Friendly and social staff. Clean and super comfortable beds! Could do with a little work, and another bathroom because there's one one shower, but a really good atmosphere and such a good location

    The staff here is exceptional. Cody has a wealth of knowledge about the hostel industry and travel. Saul is very helpful and ready to lend a hand. The hostel is a 5 min walk to the historic waterfront which has great restaurants and shops. The beds and pillows are the most comfortable I’ve ever slept on. Unfortunately, there is one shower for the whole hostel which needs to be replaced because it is stained/clogs. Lockers and a common area with TV and games would be a welcome addition.
