I really liked the free breakfast and dinner. They also have lots of events, a nice living room with streaming movies, and hammocks/bean bags all over the place to relax after a long night in Little Italy or the Gas Lamp. The staff was really helpful as well, particularly Elliot and Gabriel.

We booked a private room with bunk beds and had a sink as well as a table in our room. I LOVED this. So nice to wash your face/brush your teeth in your own room. The beds were comfy and we both slept well.The front desk staff were super nice and friendly. When we won some (small) trees on our trip and needed to store them at the hostel, the staff was more than willing to help us out. Breakfast was a good selection of cereal, toast, dairy and non-dairy milk, and tasty fruits.
