Stayed two nights in a dorm and found the staff and facilities excellent. Very comfortable lower bunk bed. Very quiet at night with everyone very respectful of house rules... lights out at 11pm. Free breakfast of pancakes and muffins is an added bonus and a great start to the day.
Very close to all the major downtown attractions and a very short stroll to Stampede.
Only complaint which is not the fault of the hostel is that there is construction going on nearby which starts at about 8am, so bring ear plugs if you fancy a lie in.
