i almost didn´t go to this hostel because of the bad reviews...but i´m glad i did! Maybe i´m an hardened backpacker, but honestly i didn´t find it dirty at all!! the beds were good, the dorms spacious and airy, 2 kitchens handy, several common rooms (for talking, for watching tv, for reading), nice breakfast, free computers, patio, laundry....and yes there...

Was greeted by lovely staff. That was the highlight the staff. All downhill from there. The room was fine. The nearest bathroom was filled with a terrible putrid stench that could only be masked by an air freshener for so long. Thinking about it now still makes me nauseous. We were only there for 2 nights, still 2 nights too... More

This hostel was very dirty with no curtains on the windows. The locals stay on one level and the travelers stay on another. On the other hand the people at the desk were EXTREMELY nice and accomodating. This is more of a place for locals that also rents dorm rooms to travelers.

I've stayed in lots of hostels across Europe as well as Central and South America and can safely say this is one of the worst. Yes the building is old, but that's not an excuse for it being so dirty. The bathrooms were gross with mould all around the shower and plaster peeling off the ceiling. We had a big... More

This is in a really nice area. The check in staff were helpful. This hostel is quite tired and worn out. Needs a handy man in there to fix a few things. It's relatively cleanish but just old looking so looks a bit drab. The beds are comfortable but no curtains so the morning sunshine pours in to wake you.... More

How this hostel is even allowed to continue business is beyond me. We arrived in the evening, after a long day of hiking and driving, and were told that the water would be back on in a moment. Three hours later, the water was still not back on, but would be shortly. We were not told of any working facilities... More

This place is a dump. They tack on to the price with random fees when you check in, and everything costs extra. Want a blanket? $2 a night. A towel? $2 a night. Access to laundry machines? $3 a night. Hold your bags on checkout day? $10. And the list could go on and on if I wanted it to.... More

Most of the people who stay here are long term residents. The staff are also residents and spend their days in the back parking lot smoking cigarettes. During my 3 day stay there was cleaning equipment in the hallway outside of my room that never moved. The bathrooms were dirty. Homeless people spend the night in the common space living... More

The hostel seems to be in rather bad shape. They have lovely rooms, kitchens, common areas, a piano and a guitar. It would probably just need better care. The bathrooms were not really clean, the showercurtain was really yak. The other beds in the dorm I slept in, stayed unmade for days. The staff was nice, but most of the... More

I would strongly recommend this place for anyone. I travelled alone for the first time and was miles away from home- my very first visit to the US. This place is safe, clean and fairly close to the down town. All people who work at the hostel are extremely courteous. I will surely come back to this hostel. I know... More
