The private twin was pretty big and quite! The staff was fantastic the free breakfast and the paid pancakes for one dollar, were amazing! I reckon we’ll be back!
Nothing all great
The entire property is very clean and the staff is very helpful. However, they make up for lack of space with the super clean linen, comfy bed, clean restroom and kitchen. Love the 1 dollar idea for eggs or pancake. They have more than enough space on the 1st floor as their lounge area.
Just find the rooms small. I stayed in the 4 bed female dorm and it gets tough even if 1 of us open our bags. The area is filled with homeless people around but they didn’t bother us honestly each time we would pass , felt safe. Ideally, Lyft is the best way to get out of the neighbourhood and avoid these streets.
friendly staff, good vegan breakfast options, clean, comfortable bed, big kitchen with lots of fridge and pantry space to store personal food.
it would be nice if when booking you could pick a top bunk or bottom bunk.
The facility itself was fantastic. Great rooms, excellent staff, enjoyable lobby area that encourages interaction with other guests. Fantastic gourmet bagels in the morning!
The negative, that the property cannot control, is all of the homeless and drug use in the surrounding area.
Lovely hostel very helpful staff! Breakfast pretty good
Area around hostel let’s it down but completely understand is out of the properties control. A lot of homeless in the area.
