Sadly, their website didn't work when I tried to book. Also, my friend's room wasn't very clean, it was on the 4th floor and I don't think they cleaned that room at all. My room on the other hand was very clean and nice. Great breakfast! Showers are nice aswell and the kitchen is perfect. The staff is very helpful... More

Had such an amazing time here. Stayed for 4 nights and every night was a party. Everyone that works here is so nice and helpful. Also the people who come to visit were super awesome, lots of international travelers to meet and befriend. If you're looking for a fun place to go, meet new friends, and explore the night life...

We went here on holiday from the UK and had timed it to coincide with spring break. The hostel had something on every night and every night was great fun. There was one exception to this where one member of the hostel staff left us at a rubbish bar on our final night. We did meet a lot of people... More

I went here the summer of 2013 right after I graduated High School. The location is great, and so are the staff working there. If you're looking for a good place to stay that is safe, this is the place to go. You have to have a key to the front door or be buzzed into the stairs that lead... More

Really good hostel, centrally located in downtown close to bars, restaurants and shops. The staff were really friendly and couldn't do enough to help us. The rooms are very basic but clean and comfortable. We had to share the showers with other guests, however these are cleaned every hour by the staff so they were always spotless. Lucky D's is...
