The hostel is nice and warm. It's in a perfect location right by the market. The kitchen is great, they serve free food a few days per week and have a great breakfast (eggs, pancakes, bread, fruit). However, here comes the bummer. The staff at the front desk seems a little unknowledgable or just not up for providing service to their guests. The hostel has absolutely NO PARKING and only provides a "fair" deal for $18 parking at a parking lot nearby. When we arrived, they didn't bother telling us exactly what parking lot it was. I got robbed $20 by a hobo or whoever this person was which could have been avoided with a little more extra notice from the front desk. They just seem not too care as much about their guests's issues.. you get a sorry that's all. The staff in the kitchen was awesome, very helpful. You can meet lots of international people and they offer city tours and stuff... So, if they could replace their useless front desk and provide more tips in the beginning, would have been an awesome stay!
Also, a little overpriced for the beds! ($37)
