One of the best and most unique hostels I have ever stayed at out of 25 different hostels in Europe and North america. There are lots of lounge areas with leather sofas and antique chairs, lots of bathrooms, and, surprisingly, lots of kitchens. The dorm rooms were very spacious and contained chairs, lamps and end tables-sort of like living rooms with beds in them.The beds were very comfortable- above average for a hostel. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Security was good-no issues with door code ( it was e mailed well ahead of time and worked just fine, although you can create your own personal one).Overall, a very relaxed, casual, homey kind of vibe.
