Liked: amazing atmosphere

Disliked: if I really would need to find something negative than it is the location. It is great in the sense that it is very central (downtown) but because of that it is also not that close to the beach

Liked: Very social, clean. Generally a great hostel.

Disliked: Signs for one social event had different times so I missed out on the trivia night, and a very noisy hostel on weekends although this is to be expected as its in the middle of the gas lamp area which is the place to go out.

Liked: We got a free dinner which was yummy and free breakfast which included waffles. Free wifi and location is really good - Just a couple of blocks from gaslamp quarter and trolley. Always things going on here, like nights out and stuff.

Disliked: Very noisy at night - But I wore ear plugs and got a great nights sleep :)

18 September 2012 Adam would recommend this property

Liked: Everything, from location, through helpfulness of staff, to atmosphere and appearance was super great.

Disliked: Maybe some personal lockers to lock valuable things would be great to have in the rooms since one can never be sure how honest is the unknown roommate. But maybe there were some and I only did not notice them. Plus the thing that no one told us in advance that we will be asked to bring bed linens to the reception. The staff should not forget to provide this information, since for example we were in a big hurry when leaving, moreover staying on the 4th floor so having it pretty rough to run up there in rush.

Liked: well located & easy to find

Disliked: no elevator.... only 2 power sockets in the room (and those in a bad place for charging your phone) very noisy at night - because of the fire department which is close to it, and the people on the street.

Liked: Its in a good area for the gaslamp district and the zoo. It always has activities on offer. Has a very big kitchen and common area so you can meet new people easily.

Disliked: Some of the younger staff are a little unprofessional. Only two bathrooms on each floor, really need more for the number of people they have staying there.

Liked: Nice hostel, feels nice and homely. Beds were comfortable and good layout of the kitchen and common areas. Friendly and helpful staff.

Disliked: Not the cleanest hostel. The bathrooms need to be cleaned more and the fact there is only 2 bathrooms on each level is really frustrating as you have to wait a while to use it. Rooms were a bit small to.
