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.

Liked: Close to all the downtown bars and clubs (although downtown is pretty expensive and douchey, so this might not be a good thing)

Disliked: Super noisy. There are a lot of bars right below. Come here to party--don't come to get some peace or quiet time.

11 January 2012 Alexandra would recommend this property

Liked: good location, friendly staff, nice atmosphere in the hostel. They have pub crawls and free dinners which is nice...

Disliked: the breakfast is fine but if you are going to run breakfast until a specific time then you should ensure that you have enough supplies (bread, milk etc) to last the entire time. If you run out, you should get some more. The bread ran out at 9am on one of the days that I was there and when I asked for some more I was told that there was none. That's not really acceptable. You had to pay for the lockers in the rooms which I think is ridiculous. I've only encountered that in perhaps 2 hostels in over 200 hostels that I have stayed in. It is a hostel. People need lockers to store valuables. The bedding was quite old, only one light per room which isn't fun when people arrive after midnight and cannot see. There was only 2 toilets and 2 showers in our area for approximately 20 people. there was a massive 'beauty' room next door though which although it was nice to have access to hair straighteners, blow dryers, sun cream etc, that room should be the toilet/shower room with a smaller area for 'beauty'.

The property's response is...

Liked: It was lively, colourful, offered all sorts of activities (though I didn't have time to participate), the rooms and beds were comfy and clean. It was great to have access to computers and internet for free (I decided against bringing mine). The atmosphere was great. I would have stayed longer if I'd could.

Disliked: Maybe it could do with a few more showers on each floor. The neighborhood was a little noisy. And maybe telling us where things are in the hostel from the start. I had to discover for myself where different things were and show others... But I guess that's how you start talking to your fellow travelers!
