Clare Jorgensen thinks…

"I really liked the sense of community with the close proximity to other guests. I liked the basement with the food and sitting areas. I also liked that a bar was offered to meet other people."

Liked: This was my first time hostel-ing and it really was a positive experience - the staff were helpful and chatty, the rooms and bathrooms clean and mirror-y and our roomate remained ridiculously friendly despite us coming back in from a steampunk concert at 2am waving samosas at her. Awesome location too!
