I didn’t realize this was a hostel until after I booked it. It’s not terrible. A communal bathroom and shower is pretty clean. Steep stairs to get up into it.

Decent, but doesn't feel the same as it used to be
So I've been staying here many times over the years however this was my first stay since the pandemic and I can definitely see some of the cost cutting measures. Main thing that stood out was the extremely cutback breakfast offerings... Prior to 2020, there used to be a big spread of bagels, pancake mix, waffle machine and more. Nowadays, it's dry pre-packaged danish pastries wrapped in plastic. Quite disappointing to see
