Liked: Amazingly clean with a great atmosphere and lots of travel help

Disliked: Nothing against the Staff- I'm sure their all fantastic, but we unfortunately caught a member on a bad day, and dealing with her hangover, took almost an hour to check us in.

Liked: Friendly staff. Big common area.

Disliked: Note -- this is NOT a Hosteling International affiliate (despite advertising conspicuously otherwise). So don't ask for the member discount. They won't honor it. Also, they pump loud music from morning to night throughout common areas. In reception sometimes it's so loud they have to shout like fishmongers at the clients to be understood. Everyone has to raise their voice to have a conversation, compounding the problem. We all have our own music these days and our heads would not explode with a little silence now and then. Aside from these two complaints, it's a pretty good hostel.
