Liked: Library nearby, Ethiopian restaurant right next door, subway nearby, good neighborhood, near what I needed to be near.

Disliked: They didn't have my reservation when I got there. I showed them the email confirmation and they put me in a larger dorm but charged me the same price, though they did fix that after the first night. The room was chilly, probably down to the 50s or even 40s, and when I asked they said the air conditioning couldn't be fixed. So we're wasting fossil fuels to make people uncomfortably cold in the summer. The lockers were too small for even my laptop, much less my suitcase, and were far away from the rooms.

Liked: Very clean and well-organized. The breakfast was good and the bathroom was tidy.

Disliked: The hostel should offer a baggage storage for free for few hours since it has a check-out deadline at 11:00. People may have their journey back around the evening and thus may like to have a final look at the city. The current baggage storage in the hostel costs $4.00 for the whole day. A crazy guy moved into my bed after I slept there one night and wore my pijamas that were lying on my bed. The staff in the reception gave me fresh bedding right way. However, they should be more careful of whom they are letting in.

Liked: The included breakfast was substantial and made the price worth it. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and beds were made for you before arrival which is always nice - especially if you have a late check in.

Disliked: Some of the staff at the front desk were not very friendly and seemed to want to rush everything even when there was noone else waiting to speak to them.
