Dirty, noisy, too small kitchen and staff that are doing the minimum. I actually saw one of them in his underwaer on the balcony(go figure what he was on) and other staff just smoking weed like it was normal. When you pass by the front desk they don't even bother stoping looking at there computer to say Hi or wish... More

The hostel is not clean nor really dirty. Also, it is weirdly made. We stayed in the basement, which I found cleaner than the rest of the hostel where some of our friends stayed. I found it ok. It was a bit expensive to my taste. However, the staff was helpful and the give you free coupons to go to... More

I stayed in a dorm for 2 nights. I arrived late after driving all day and was shown my room. They have a huge house that has lots of bedrooms. Showers and toilets are combined and there's a couple for each floor - I never had any issues or waits, although a little dirty (could use a wipe down at... More

Apparently the Hostel is full mostly in winter but in summer there was nearly nobody there. I was clean but looked very run down. Samesun just took over Hostel - so they should invest in it I would say! There was no breakfast in summer and the kitchen contained virtually nothing. However, If you are not looking for much action... More

At the end of the day you're paying a budget price, the hostel was clean and tidy, not too hot or too cold. Staff were helpful and no issues with the room. An extra bathroom may have been handy. The quiet time is 11pm however we were awoken a few times due to others laughing and being noisy so this... More

Pretty normal hostel. The bathroom was super busy at night and in the morning. They were out of backdoor keys for us, but as lots of people would socialize in the backyard in the evening it was never a problem.

Pros - Great location, aquatic center passes, clean, friendly staff and guests. Cons - I booked a private room and asked about the bed. I was told we would receive a queen bed. Instead our room had a bunk bed. Our room was in the basement next to the common area and the TV was mounted on the other side... More

We rented a private room in the hostel over the holidays. Great location and friendly staff. The room was OK but not worth the price. The door is glass and right next to the front desk so you can basically hear everything going on in the hostel at all times. The kitchen has no door so it smells like food... More

We payed the cheapest in town and tried not to have great expectations. If you don't mind staying in a dirty place then it will be good for you. We think this is always the result when they pay cleaning staff by letting them stay at reduced rate. They don't have any pride in their task. There wasn't garbage littering... More

I like this place! This hostel is special. Since it was a former church it's a very old building with it's own atmosphere... They have just a little parking lot behind the house. Drying your clothes in your own room can be annoying during a longer stay with lots of powder. Even though there is a warmed ski locker. You... More
