Great location
I've never stayed in a hostel, so I wasnt sure what to expect. I had a really nice stay for 2 nights. The location is perfect. I will stay here again.

Great place to stay at a good price
Overall it was a great place to stay. The staff were nice and helpful. The facilities were adequate. Location was good. The free dinner and breakfast were great. The only bad thing is the room was hot, but there was a fan and that helped.

Poor 2.0
Watch for the fine print
First impression on this stay was negative. The transgender receptionist was very rude and didn't want to accept their ad error. Their ad was very misleading. Lots of information in the fine print. They fail to be direct and open. I guess that how they charge extras. Was very disappointed and will not recommend this to anyone
