Liked: clean, nice and helpful staff, one can borrow towels and leave suitcases at checkout date, 4-bed dorms are nice and not so crowded (much better than 6 or 8-bed dorms at other places) free food 3 nights a week! movie night, pub crawl ---> lots of things going on

Disliked: fat free milk for breakfast was the only option, a little bit more space to store or put things on in the rooms would have been nice

Liked: very artsy and laid back. nice staff. convenient location. if they upgraded the beds/bedding, i would stay there again, but on that point alone i would stay elsewhere. i left early rather than stay a second night.

Disliked: the bunk beds in dorm are ancient metal ones that squeeked and rocked whenever someone shifted in their bed. would not want to be in them during an earthquake. the blanket was extremely skimpy and the pillow was flat and lumpy. i am not sure but it seems that the heat was turned extremely low at night. woke up several times quite cold. the free meals were nothing to brag about. all hi sugar junk cereals. if you were starving and broke, dinner was edible, but otherwise you could do better with fast food. common rooms were...common.

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.
