Kinda tricky to find, in an alley, but worth the search. Checked in for one night only on a layover from PV. My room was up 2 floors, with murals along all of the stairs and hallways, in a 4bed female dorm. I’ve stayed in a few hostels and think this is a really great room

The hostel was great, they went above and beyond to help me. I booked 2 nights separately and they helped me by allowing me have the same bed for 2 nights to make it easier for me. The location is great really close to Union Square. Make sure you take the free walking tour

I have booked a double private room at the Adelaide and it was located.... at the Dakota. Nice building but noisy (at the corner of two busy streets). I understood that all the private double rooms are the Dakota.

Heya, I stayed just a few nights ago. I really loved it, no bedbug experiences in the two beds i slept in. Just check with them that they have space in their hostel, it didn't seem an overly busy time of year and sundays were quite quiet. I stayed in dorm rooms A and E, all was really clean so I was impressed. Hope this helps, Freyja

The kitchen where breakfast is served is open during the day and you can definitely go and cook there, there were fridges, ovens, microwaves, all the usual stuff :)
