11 October 2006 would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel was extremely friendly and clean. The rooms and bathrooms were in excellent condition! The showers also, amazingly enough, had water pressure... unlike most hotels. In fact I honestly think the shower was better than what I have at home. The staff was very friendly and helpful and were willing to do what they could for any problems we had. I have NEVER stayed in a hostel before. My wife got me to stay here. If all hostels are like this one I would never stay in a cheap hotel again. Places like this deserve to be booked solid and rolling in the money.
