Liked: Michelle the manager refunded two nights as I felt seriously uncomfortable here and had to leave. Free internet.

Disliked: My stay here was a total disaster. Michelle the manager is a nice lady but she is vicariously responsible for the actions of her staff. Firstly, many members of the staff and questionable guests are looking to con you and get you to do things for their benefit. A number of them also have serious drug and alcohol problems. One particular staff member named Justin is the most disgustingly abhorrent human being I have ever had the displeasure of meeting - and I have been to over 40 countries in my travels. I was constantly lied to, stolen from and treated in a totally unacceptable manner. Just stay somewhere else, for your own sake.

Liked: I loved the atmosphere. Everyone was so friendly and inviting. Its located in a great location, and even if you can't get somewhere by walking, the staff are always there to help. Definitley a good place for youths travelling alone. You could party every night there if you wanted.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: We stayed 4 nights at the LuckyD. They are located downtown, over a bar - so on one hand good for party but also on weekends noisy :). They offer a good breakfast with few different kinds of cereals and either waffles or toast. The rooms are okey, the bathrooms most of the time clean.

Disliked: They have only 2 showers for a whole floor - so be early in the morning or shower in the evening to avoid standing in line ;) And you have to pay 0.25$ each time you lock your personal things in the lockers in the rooms.

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.

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.
