Liked: The hostel had a lot of character and was easy enough to find. I'd recommend walking along N. Charles street to get there, it's nice and safe.

Disliked: Well... it's in Baltimore.HI USA has a non-alcohol policy. While I can kind of understand their rationale, it would have been nice to have a beer with dinner. Maybe a no alcohol during quiet hours (e.g. after 11pm)? That would discourage "partying" in the hostel, without limiting a social drink or two.

Liked: The location was great, and the free pancake breakfast was a bonus. Although the pancake mix isn't available until 7:30 and I often had to leave by then. It would have been nice to have breakfast available by 7. The downstairs space is nice, but I didn't have much time to spend there.

Disliked: - The first night our bathroom had no shower curtain and the bathroom floor was really wet. The lock on the bathroom door was also broken, and someone walked in on me naked!- There didn't seem to be much courtesy when it came to noise at night-- many people in my room came in late and would talk out loud. Poor form.- The breakfast didn't start until 7:30am, which is a bit late considering many people staying there had to be at a conference by 8. Breakfast at 7 would be nicer.- The beds and pillows have a crinkly plastic on them, which were hot and loud.- There were over $40 in hidden fees that were not included in the total I was given by HostelBookers. This was not an affordable stay considering I was in an 8-person room. It would have been cheaper to get a shared hotel room.
