“Great place to stay”
Reviewed October 22, 2008

We stayed at this hostel for 3 nights and the manager (Kat) was just awesome! The hostel was spotlessly clean, nice location and very comfortable. Kat did everything to make you and all the other guests feel at home (fresh flowers in your room!) and cooked up a great turkey dinner for Thanksgiving.
This was a wonderful experience! Thanks a lot! A&P
