Very nice hostel and friendly staff would stay again but hopefully the lift is working this time as awkward carrying luggage up stairs. Also shower rooms are very small and confined. Harry and Trina where very helpful

Cool events like Pub Crawling (other events also offered, like karaoke night), clean rooms, very friendly staff. A bit noisy during the night, good located in city center. Breakfast ok. Would go there again.

We stayed in a double-room with own bath. The room was small, but clean. The public transportation was near the hostel. You can walk to the wharf in less than 30 min. The breakfast was good, you can create your own pancakes.

It was my first time at USA Hostel and I liked so much. All of team are amazing people. They have a great breakfast I have shared the 4bed room but it isn't one problem, if you don't have problema with privacity it's ok for you. If you want to sleep and enjoy the city it's a good idea Thank... More
