Absolutely amazing hostel, was only there for one night and it happened to be Thanksgiving night. The staff allowed the Americans to take over the kitchen and prepare a feast, even helping to clean up after. Incredible staff (Patrick) that went above and beyond.

Great hostel! Staff is so nice and helpful. Kitchen well-equipped. Hang out spaces are fantastic. No outlets by the beds/shelf or curtains, but for me that was not a big issue.
