I have stayed in hotels and hostels all over the world and after this experience at Lucky D's, I can sum up all my complaints in just one statement: there should be a sixth star for businesses of this calibre. ;-) I contacted the owner of LD's a few weeks ago and told her I am working on a documentary...

Sam offered to show me around and I was quite impressed with the cleanliness and sense of comfort I had while I was there. A lot of good energy here and I have no problem recommending... More

If all hostels were like this I would never stay at a hotel again. Lucky D's offered us free breakfast, beer night, and wifi. They also have a refrigerator where guest can store food.The downtown location was convenient for using public transit. We had a private room that was a good size and clean. The bathrooms and common rooms were... More

Come here. I wasn't there for the night life, but the girl I roomed with was and she had a blast. There were organized events every night, including a 5$ margarita night. It was close to transit stations and restaurants, but also the homeless shelter which made me wary of walking alone at night. The room was larger than I... More
