Clean & tidy
The painted turtle had some of the comfiest, fluffier and cleanest bedding I've seen in a hostel. Very good beds!
Although the hostel was very tidy and lovely it did lack a bit of character for an old building. Everything was white, a little hotel-ish.

Luggage storage and a concierge are just some of the convenient services at the hostel. It also has ski lockers and laundry facilities.
