I wanna start by saying from the moment I walked in, Teal (I think that was her name) at the front desk made me feel more than welcomed. She gave me so much information and seemed interested in talking and not just "doing her job." This was my first ever experience at a hostel and I always hear the horror stories but the whole building was clean (rooms, bathroom, common areas). I stayed for two nights in a 3 bedroom female dorm and one night it was me and another girl (we actually spent the whole day touring the city together)..my last night it was just me in the room. I never had to wait for the bathroom and I never felt worried about other guest taking my things. The hostel is located in a great neighborhood and right by transit to take you to all the popular places. The only reason I am giving it 4 stars instead of five are issues that are not really huge deal; they are in the middle of making a "coffee bar/shop" in the lobby and the workers didn't care if you were asking for help or checking in, they kept drilling really loud and me and the agent had to basically yell at each other...also, when I checked out it was 4am and I needed to take a taxi since I was running a little late, it was freezing outside and the guy who came up to check me out wouldn't call me a taxi, he said it was better to go outside and hail one, which I would agree with if it wasn't so early in the morning. I waited 35 min for a taxi and finally got a number from google and called one myself. For the price, cleanliness and friendly front desk, I would stay here again and would suggest it to everyone.
