Lacks sufficient air circulation in the dorms which is problematic if you're an asthmatic or if you don't like smelly feet. The foyer is amazing with comfortable seating and a pool table, but it's too refrigerated. I caught a cold sitting in there. Bring a sweater or jacket if you plan on lounging in the foyer. And lastly, it's a great hostel minus all of the racial, gender, and climate propaganda. This place is extremely far-left. They should focus more on lodging and less on activism.
