Liked: Cleanliness, overall updated building, options for activities, felt safe and secure.

Disliked: Location wasn't the best because it wasn't downtown as I would have liked but it wasn't in the ghetto so I can't complain about that.

Liked: Very welcoming and friendly environment in a great location! The hostel is a great atmosphere will all the comforts of a nice apartment in the city (including a cafe!). I really appreciated having complimentary hair dryers in the women's restrooms, as well as the option for clean towels daily! As a single traveler, the hostel atmosphere provides great areas to meet fellow travelers in the different hangout/ lounge areas.

Disliked: NA

Liked: Really convenient, close to a subway stop. Huge kitchen whcih made it easy to cook. Enjoyable welcome evenings for guests which meant I met cool people.

Disliked: The very minor downside is that it is quite far uptown, so taking the subway is necessary. It is also very big, so if you are shy you might just stay in your bubble.
