I've stayed twice at this hostel, getting a private room. One time I shared the bathroom with a men's dorm - awkward. The staff is not helpful. There's supposed to be breakfast fixings - but they run out. It is the cheapest room this close to downtown Minneapolis - but you get what you pay for.

The location is good but everything else for the price (about $100 for a room with full bed and shared bath) was unimpressive. This is doubly unfortunate because with just a little more effort and not too much cost e.g decent sheets and mattress pad, touch up on paint) it could be much nicer. The whole place has a general...

The hostel is in a good location, and comfortable enough. Bathrooms are a bit scare, and in the three days I spent there not I don't think they were cleaned. Also, there's not really any information available on the city and the things to do there. OK place, but not the best.

Sometimes a downtown drunken night calls for a hostel stay. This place does the job just fine. And there's something energetic, youthful, and fun about hostels. Although I do recommend this hostel, it could be cleaned a little better. I've read all the other reviews and do see all their points of view as valid. I just want to stress... More

This was my first time staying in a hostel, so I didn't know what to expect. As the other reviews say, cleanliness and staff friendliness are the two weakest areas. Linens and towels are provided and have been washed, but are quite worn. I stayed in the 15-bed male dorm and the bathroom always stunk, but the sleeping arrangements served... More

You can't ask for a better location to stay at and the prices are very reasonable, but EW! I booked a double room with private bath and our tub was filled with unknown amounts or hair, blood and mucus which readily clogged the drain. The shower head was useless as well. The bed was so uncomfortable and the pillows and... More

I've stayed in hostels all over the world and I really wanted to love this place. It is in a beautiful old house and has a killer location near Eat Street. Buses are very close and you can walk almost anywhere. This house is very historic, so I instantly loved it. It's right on the corner, but there is no... More

I have stayed in lots of hostels over the years and this one was fine for one night but needs some improvements. The house is old and charming but facilities are not up-to-date. I was given clean sheets and a pillowcase but the pillow and blankets on the bed were not very clean. I had a four-bed room to myself... More

The Hostel has a good location but it doesn`t have anything in front of the house indicating that it was a Hostel... The first impression was moroless because the staff looked like he was in a hurry. He explained about the rules of the place too fast, if we didn`t have a good English it would be hard to understand.... More
