Liked: The roof top deck; the beautiful washrooms,

Disliked: In the common areas such as the kichen and open area dining & Mac computer stations there was ALWAYS music being played in the background, and sometimes it would have been nice to not have that playing especially when you are trying to make a call in the phone booths that are provided (I do not have a cell and/or any privacy to make a personal, noise free call). Also, they do not provide ANY paper towels, napkins in the kitchen or bathrooms so everyone is forced to use the same 'wash cloth' in the communal bathrooms and the soaking wet 'wash cloth' that is used as a 'kitchen towel' in the kitchen. When I brought this to the staff's attention, they basically brushed me off as though I was making a ridiculous request and told me it's because they are a 'Green' Hostel...Yah, I am aware the hostel received an award for being the 'greenest' hostel in North America - which is one of the reason's why I chose to book here, HOWEVER, it still doesn't make sense to provide only 1 wash cloth per communal bathroom when EVERYONE is constantly using them and as far as the kitchen is concerned - providing napkins which BTW, are 'recyclable' makes sense! I mean, what does every one use to wipe their mouths and hands with - their sleeves???? Other than that, this place is fantastic!!! Thanks Antony for doing such a bang up job with this hostel!!

Liked: It's so modern and clean; the staff appear to take great pride in their accommodation and are very welcoming, they offer some great 'extras' like free popcorn, and the roof deck is gorgeous! This is way more than you would expect from your a city hostel

Disliked: The rooms are tiny!!

Liked: One of the best hostels I've stayed in - very clean, modern, generous. They have everything you need all to hand and everything is included. Great staff too, very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Only thing was the rooms were a bit small, but then it's a hostel so that's pretty standard.

Liked: I liked the comfortable bed and personal lockers

Disliked: It was hard to get phone signal near the property (WIND), and the breakfast timeonly starts from 7am, for people who have early morning bus/train rides they miss out on the breakfast because of time
