Very Good

To its credit: the location is great, the inclusion of a transportation pass was cool, and it looked quite nice. That being said, there is no AC and even with the windows open the rooms get very hot, there was what looked like a large (and loud) school group running around, the breakfast buffet they rave about is very lacking, and I thought it was strange that the key card they gave you only let you access the bathroom on your floor. A lot of flaws for a hostel that is not necessarily cheap.

Very good hostel! The staff were super accommodating! We accidentally booked two nights separately so they combined them into one stay for us and then we had another friend coming who booked a separate room but we asked if she could be moved into ours and they also made that happen!
