9.7Wonderful
Brendan, Oct. 2017

Pros. This hostel is right in the heart of downtown, and a block away from the park entrance. Staff were all friendly and helpful. Rooms were clean, beds were comfortable, plenty of space to move around, with solid lockers for each bed. Breakfast simple but included, a full size kitchen with available food to use, plenty of spots to hangout inside and out....this hostel has everything you would need or want. Definitely recommended!

Cons. No problems for me at all.

9.4Wonderful
Anonymous, Jun. 2017

Pros. The beds were quality and I felt like I got a great sleep. Since the bunks aren't the typical metal stand alone bunks but bunks that are built in with wood the bed didn't shake at all when someone was going to the top bunk, which is super annoying and rare. They also had a curtain you could pull to give yourself more privacy. It felt more cozy and like a cabin. Wonderful stay and I would definitely stay here again!

Cons. The bunk beds, the curtain, the cozy feeling.
