27 February 2014 Laura would recommend this property

Liked: The location is perfect, right across the street from the Basilica and the Enoch Pratt Free Library. Decent walk down to the harbor and up toward more museums. The free city bus runs one street down which is great. The building itself is old, 1857 I think and has a lot of unique charms. The common room was really large with a free book section. The woman's room is large with toilet and two showers and sink in the room, with one in the hall. It's the winter time and the heating is great! Love the reading lamp for each bed.

Disliked: Laura left no negative feedback.

Liked: The building is old so has lots of character and the rooms are large. It is fairly close to the harbour, just a short bus ride away. The bus stop is very close!

Disliked: The staff weren't that great, depends who you get as one was really helpful, the other really didn't want to be working. The lockers in the room were also a bit dodgy but there were some outside that worked fine. Generally it was just a bit neglected but the kitchen and location was great.

Liked: It was really big, but there were not many people staying at the hostel. There we 3 common areas to hang out, one big dining room and a huge fully equipped kitchen.

Disliked: There were not that many nice people, a lot of old people. I would like the place better if it was a youth hostel. Also the fact that it is a International Hostel, which means you have to pay extra each night.
