          Fantastic place! Book an extra night even if you're not sure you'll need it. It's worth the extra few dollars as it's always sold out. You won't find nicer, cleaner place anywhere close to the price range. It's hands down one of the best hostels...More

          I see no reviews complaining of the neighborhood noise but after our first night it is so overwhelming I haven't slept a wink. Are we missing something? Are we in the only bad room? Best on the noise I would never recommend this to anyone. I myself can't imagine another night of this! Help us from those of you who loved this place!?!
