Exceptional 10.0
Loved the building, location, activities and though I only participated in one I loved to know that there are activities to choose! The staff is friendly, decor is modern and hip, for sure I’ll be back! I’m 100% pleased!

Very good 8.0
Great for a bed and decent breakfast.
Decent place. Affordable restaurants nearby. Check in a bit slow. They take payment there, even though takes your card number.

Exceptional 10.0
Perfect solo person place to stay
Easy check in. Hostel is on Stuart near other hotels and restaurants that are next door. 7-11 is up the street if you need any snacks. Hostel sells water coffee energy drinks & other drinks. Key cards are given to guest which allows access to your room but also at night it allows access to inside the hotel and elevators as a security measure. Check in desk has maps of sights to see in the city that are there for free to use to get about town. WiFi is available throughout the hostel and the lobby has outlets near chairs and couches to sit and charge your devices. 2nd floor is where the kitchen and dining hall are along with other amenities like laundry and pool table. Access to rooms can be by elevators or stairs. Couches are in the middle of each floor to lounge on or use to sit and make a phone call during quiet time as to not disturb people in your room. Rooms have a small light and a couple of outlets included with each bunk bed. A locker the size of medium to large suit case to store your belongings. You must provide your own lock to use or you can buy a lock at the front desk. there are also 2 coat hooks on the wall for each bunk bed to use to hang coats or other items. Thermostat in room to control ac and heat. Large mirror in room as well.Bathrooms are right outside your room with individual bath floor mats inside.Paper towel dispenser and hand soap dispenser inside.Shower with a body wash and shampoo dispenser are on the wall for use.I would recommend staying here

Fair 4.0
You get what you pay for
I know it’s a hostel, so I do not expect much from my stay, but I would hope to have at least basic service I could get, for example, you can’t even get enough water in the restroom to have a decent shower.
