As this is from the big Hostelling International chain, I was expecting it to be big and busy, but I was pleasantly surprised. I was in a 6 bedded female dorm, which had its own toilet and shower - very small, but I was expecting a big communal one in the corridor. The mattresses/bunk frames could do with an update - very creaky and not that comfortable. The heater was also rubbish, we did report it, but when it was snowing outside, it was cold! Common areas were really cosy, and bar food good, even if it's in the basement! Lots of people stay here and work in the city, so I didn't meet too many travellers, which was a bit of a shame. Location is good - quiet street, near shops and a subway stop. Staff were friendly and helpful. The best thing about this hostel chain is the events that they organise - really good way to meet people.
