The overwhelming feeling is cold of this hostel. It is not filled with the typical international travelers sharing stories. I actually felt like it was more of a rehab place (based on feeling).
The room was bland with one bunkbed (the lower bed is maybe a full size). There is a desk inside the room and lockers for your stuff. You get towels which is nice. The showers are a bit dirty and it was difficult to get the staff to fill toilet paper in the bathrooms.
The wifi is my biggest complaint. It barely works. No skype. Emails take forever to load. The loan it works is tiny (just around the desk) and like I said it is very faint. They need to change this.
The location is near Whyte ST for eating and drinking. However it is not near the city center.
