  • Liked: Staff & service

Overall good/great value and safe/comfortable!

Not bad overall. Hotels.com charged me for 2 beds because I think that's the default. If I had bought from them directly it would have been half what I paid. Area is fine during daylight hours, but gets a little bit rough at night. LOTS of marijuana consumption on/around premise, which is legal but FYI. With any hostel, the experience is great when there is a good sense of community. There wasn't when I was there. The common area was normally empty and quiet, most stayed in their rooms with doors shut. It was quiet, but it wasn't fun. Wireless was perfect. I was never there during free pancake breakfast.

Really friendly and inspiring hosts and guest! Met so many cool people here. But cleanliness, comfort and condition needs a bit more work, but it was cheap and fun trip.
