Jhonatan Oliveira thinks…

"Very well localized. Close to many things. I could go walking to some attractions, or take the bus almost in front of the Hostel. Staff 24/7 in the reception room. A pub right down the hostel."

Liked: Very well localized. Close to many things. I could go walking to some attractions, or take the bus almost in front of the Hostel. Staff 24/7 in the reception room. A pub right down the hostel.

Disliked: The building is old and some times it seems dirty, even with the staff cleaning daily. The badroom was so hot and (I went in the Summer, what make it worse). The breakfast was just a muffin with coffee (but at the description of the Hostel they only say "breakfast").

Liked: Cheap and fantastic location. The free muffins in the mornings were great too!

Disliked: Uncomfortable bed with springs sticking into my back. The Dj and band in the bar downstairs played until 2 am both nights of the stay and it was so loud it vibrated through the floors making it impossible not to be disrupted. The traffic outside and people on the streets were also very disturbing. One of the receptionists was not overly friendly or warm and seemed to hate being there. One of the 2 showers didn't work and the maid was cleaning the bathroom really early when people were trying to shower. Also, the water pressure wasn't good and the shower doors were so low that tall people could be seen!

Liked: the stuff during the day, coffee 24hrs

Disliked: The cleanliness is very bad, also there are mice (and maybe other animals as well) in the house. That the stuff during the night is not able to decide anything... And you only get your deposit on the creditcard (!!) in cash! Especially bad if you leave the country after your stay and you don´t need cash anymore. If you just want to stay for one night in a cheap accomodation and you don´t get a room next to the washroom it might be okay but definitely not for a longer stay!

Liked: Great location.

Disliked: This hostel is in a perfect location. However on the floor I was on there was 1 toilet working for females and then the only one broke so there was no toilets for females. Shower was just a dribble of water. I cancelled my second booking. The card access to the rooms is a joke and didn't work.

Liked: right in the downtown area, perfect location.

Disliked: there are only 2 toilets and bathrooms for all ladies..... so you may need to wait a bit in the morning, and lacking of privacy.

Liked: Small dorms, basically two person rooms - had a private room by default! Clean bathrooms, lovely muffins for breakfast, helpful staff, and even have an iron you can borrow! The bedding is lovely and clean, and warm!

Disliked: No towels, and no lockers, but as small rooms the latter isn't too much of a worry.

Liked: Very nice location, helpfull staff, safe (no guests allowed, you need you're card to get in, and at night they check your ID)

Disliked: Rooms are quite small and it depends on where you stay in the hostel. The rooms above the bar can be quite noisy.

Liked: Great value for the price. Good location too (better than Gastown, which can be a bit shady). Go across the street Goldie's!! The owner is the coolest guy and they've got great pizza!

Disliked: Not very social and the bar downstairs is loud, especially if there's a live band playing.

Liked: Reasonable location. Pretty clean.

Disliked: Very unfriendly guy at front desk when we checked in, wasn't a great first impression! Kitchen is way too small for the amount of people staying there and kitchen utensils are limited. Only 2 male & 2 female toilets on each floor. Absolutely no privacy in the showers.

02 December 2009

Liked: First of all the staff isn't friendly or helpful at all. The hostel is really dirty and doesn't offer a lot. Under my bed we found poison for mousses or rates. The sheets in which we lay were old and not changed. I could find hair in my bed. Under the hostel there is a bar and they always have life bands and it was really loud. Breakfast is ok, they offer black tea and coffee and a muffin which taste sometimes not backed. The location is really cool. I would rather pay a little bit more and go to another hostel than staying at this hostel again.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
