I visited Minneapolis in December of 2011 to go to a football game at the Metrodome. I stayed in this hostel as it is one of the only options for really cheap accomodation. It is a large house and I was one of only three guests at the time.
I have stayed in hostels around the world and found my self very disappointed in this hostel. The cleanliness was off the charts in a bad way. I did not spend much time in the room and did my best to ensure that none of my clothes or items touched the carpet, which is in dire need of a vaccuuming. There were also random hairs and stains on the bedding I was given. As I was alone I received a single room on the third floor. I am only 5'8" tall and the room appeared to be in an attic of some sort as I was only able to stand up straight when standing directly under the skylight.
The location is not horrible as it is near bus lines and Nicollet Mall, but the cleanliness of the rooms is just too much of a downside for me to recommend this place.
