    I was sick during my whole stay here so I couldn’t really enjoy the place. However, the place was great! One of the better atmospheres I’ve been in and tons of people from all over chilling in the common area.

    This is a very good hostel, I would definitely stay here again. It’s a great location with great views from the common area. We stayed in the double private room which was very nice. I can’t speak for the dorm rooms. My only complaint is the bed wasn’t that comfortable but compared hostels it was fine.

    Really nice social areas and a big, well appointed kitchen. We were only there for one night but the atmosphere was great. The only downsides were the beds weren't too comfortable and there aren't lockers in the rooms
