19 June 2008 Janelly would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel was very nice. It was pretty clean and the staff was very nice. The breakfast was a bit lacking, but its included with the price so I can't complain...We were located right across a parking garage so, that was veru convinenient for our rented car. There were lots of places to eat nearby and a nice club was within walking distance (in heels ^^).
