4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I liked that your were really on your own when you were there. I didn’t have any problems while I was there and so I don’t know how well they respond to them. They didn’t let me know about the kitchen. I found out about that about 3 days in. Which would’ve been nice as I would’ve eaten breakfast there. But that’s my only complaint. I’d definitely go back.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Disliked: Amenities
The atmosphere of the property was very cool (old brick building) and the staff / service were excellent. Unfortunately, the bar downstairs is extremely noisy, making it difficult to sleep. The common areas are too small for the number of rooms; it can be difficult to find a place to hang out.

Booking again!
It was a very decent time there while attending a convention. Meet lots of cool people at the hostel in the kitchen area and well obviously being above a bar is a problem for those who are light sleepers but for me I slept without a problem and enjoyed the clean linen and all the accommodations they had to offer!
