Liked: 90% of staff were amazing. The other 10% were still good though! Love fact that they organise different social events each night (often budget, socialable and fun). Nice free breakfast and a great kitchen to use (clean, big, etc.). GREAT HOSTEL OVERAL

Disliked: ermm nothing much...maybe harder matresses in the dorm room and fix the blinds? Also, careful walking from Greyhound to Hostel, it gets a bit sketchy east of 6th street if you walk down from Broadway...But totally safe and great west of hostel.

Liked: Good location and freebies however not the best place for backpackers. I got the impression that most of the people here either worked here or were people using the hostel as a half way house.
