    Good people best spot you will find for visiting Wilmington, Only negative is there is only one bathroom and dorm, so limited overall space. Atmosphere was cool and the this hostel overall has every thing you need for a cheap stay. Not a super fancy hostel but everything you need and expect from one.

    Had a great time. Hostel is located within walking distance of the riverwalk and downtown Wilmington, beaches you will have to drive to. I stayed in the private room and it's all you need for a great solo trip with privacy but also the social environment of a hostel. Would definitely stay again!

    Very Good

    10 Aug 2021
    Our private room was clean, decent sized, and well priced. The bathrooms were clean and the house overall was neat. We did not meet any staff. Our only compliant is that the quiet hours are not respected-10am inside. People sat out in the main area talking well past midnight, people coming and going all night, making her for anyone who is not a very heavy sleeper to sleep well.

    Unless you are a hard core party person this is not a good fit. Staff starts to drink at 9am and drinks all day plus other usage of an unknown variety. New owners a few months ago. Half of the people staying there live there. Not a normal hostel environment, even when alcohol is allowed on premises.

    Had a reservation for 2 nights but left after the first night. No place to safely store your valuables. You had to manually pull the plunger in the half bath to flush the toilet. Bathtub looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a month. Ivy from outside was growing inside the window in one of the rooms. It took a couple hours for the "housemom" to respond to my texts with questions. The one bright spot is they did refund me for the second night when I said I didn't feel safe or comfortable staying
