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. They do lots of little things to help out; do your washing for you, free computers and printers as well as a phone to make...

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...

From outside I was a little bit worried about quality. But It was the best hostel I've ever been in. Reception is 24/7 and they showed me whole hostel including local practics. Free wifi, free breakfast- very rich (cereals, eggs, waffles, ingredients to make pancakes, fruits, hot and cold drinks). I used common frindge and lock luggage in safe when...

Was planning to stay here just few days and ended up staying few months. Jeff was great guy always making the guest feel welcome with nights out to clubs and movie nights at the hostel. Free morning breakfast was nice.

This hostel is very friendly & social. The common area is small enough that you get to know people right away. I was there on Thanksgiving & the staff made dinner for everyone. If you want peace and quiet, get an upstairs room, as there's usually a party vibe downstairs. There is an all-female dorm, but keep in mind it...

Really good value with free laundry, printing, photocopying, international phonecalls and breakfast all included! I stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm. The bed was super comfy and had a little locker by it for valuables. Showers are clean and there are towels you can borrow and hairdryers to use. The staff were awesome. Really helpful and friendly. There's the...

First time in a hostel all staff were friendly and helpful free pancakes and laundry and computer and a phone to make international calls on which I thought was a nice touch!

This hostel was well located, especially for the stampede. But it was clearly in a state of disrepair-showers were out of order, buckets were catching water and locks malfunctioned. The staff was really helpful through all of this, but there was only so much they could do.

If you have nothing to do in the evenings, this hostel might be the right choice. Friendly staff, which prepare plan for every evening! Opportunity for meeting new people. Plus delicious breakfast :-)
