Kyle Hoelscher

03 July 2008 Kyle would recommend this property

Liked: This was a nice little hostel. A bit cramped and god help you if you are on the top floor with lots of luggage because those stairs can be a killer. But, the shower and the bathroom were cleaned everyday, which was great. And a pleasant surprise was that the toilet paper was soft and thick.

Disliked: Kyle left no negative feedback.

Liked: I like that in the middle of the night when my neighbors were loud and partying, the guy working the desk got them to shut up very efficiently. Thank you! You can hear everything from the other rooms here, so people realy need to be respectful of their neighbors. Staff was the best thing about this place.

Jennifer Wooden

09 June 2008 Jennifer would recommend this property

Liked: The night person was really nice. The beds were comfortable, but BEWARE of the 7-person room! Not a real bed.... We complained though, and got moved after midnight into our own 7-person room, for the two of us. Breakfast consisted of bread, jelly, meat and cheese. Overall a nice place to stay, but bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper.
