May, 2017 I asked for a room but was refused because I only had one mid-sized back pack. "The rules" are that I must have bags. What are hostels for? People traveling through...short stays, right? I explained that I was from out of town and just needed to stay for 3 nights. I was coldly turned away.

So many things about this hostel are great! The staff and people there are by far the best thing! They are not only very helpful but join in with what is happening around the hostel and still keep on top of everything so you always know where you are with bookings etc. They are very welcoming too and will check...

I've stayed in close to 500 different accommodations - hostels to 4 1/2 star hotels in nearly 30 countries so I was surprised to experience David from Germany on reception from this hostel who was the most charming, grounded and attentive staff member. He checked me in, took me on a tour around the hostel which allowed me to gain...

Funky and fun. This is the place to go if your looking for a good time. Wonderful staff and facilities, always a ball of fun! Had a family dinner on Sundays for $5 and Superb location, right next to the train station, so majority of the city is accessible! Wonderful stay!

The building isn't much to look at from the outside so I was a bit worried pulling up. That all changed when I checked in, the place was clean, the staff very helpful and friendly.

Nothing too fancy from the outside, but inside a pleasant surprise! Free wifi, free breakfast, free parking, free lockers, free laundry (that gets washed for you!), free printing and computers, free tea, coffee and hot chocolate throughout the day (which is needed when it's -25 outside!) It is by far the cleanest hostel I've ever stayed in. Linen and towels...
