Thomas Cochran

29 April 2008 Thomas would recommend this property

Liked: Well the common area in the lobby/bar area is really great for meeting people and hanging out. I was really impressed with this. The basement TV room is also a great place to mellow out, watch a movie, and hang out with other travellers. The staff was just great and extrememly helpful and accomodating. Also the place is right in the center near everything so you don´t have to hike forever to get anywhere. This was probably the funnest hostel I´ve stayed in.
