Good 7.8 From 750 reviews

Very good 8.0
Better than anticipated
I snagged a really great two-night weekend deal for my buddy and I, as we were trying to find hotels in the area for a concert. Since I realized most hotels were stupid expensive in the area, this deal seemed almost...too good. I had no previous experience with hostels before, so we were both pleasantly surprised with how nice the area was and the hostel itself. The rooms were very clean and were keycard locked which was very comforting to me. The only thing I would have to complain about is the state of our bunk bed. I'm the type of person who can sleep comfortably everywhere, but the frame of the bunk was so unbelievably loud that it was hard to keep quiet just rolling over to my other side. Aside from that, everything about our stay worked out very well and I would not hesitate to consider them again.

The Hostel was as I would expect. My only negative is there was only one small space to pull into for check in and if a vehicle is already there you are out of luck.

Not for us...
We booked a room with bathroom and it was still, basically, like staying in a dorm. There was a lot of activity till late in the night... shouting, screaming, pounding, doors slamming, etc... rooms were not the cleanest, but i’ve seen worse. The area was great, and the proximity to our son’s college was nice.

Great Value-OK Location-OK Stay
For the price - rock bottom - I've endured a lot worse. Great breakfast. Well maintained, if you don't notice the paint chipping on the stairs. The dorm had dismal lighting. The bathrooms are pretty far from the rooms. There was a persistent smell in the halls - not really unpleasant - it could have been cleaning product used. Public computers with free lightening fast Internet

I’ve stayed in some bad hostels and this was not one of them. The room and bathroom were clean and the location was perfect. Free breakfast is always nice and this one had hard boiled eggs, which at a hostel free breakfast you never get. I did read reviews stating the water pressure wasn’t good so I was prepared for that. Let me tell you it wasn’t as bad as others stated (at least for my room). I would definitely stay here again
