I'm not really a hostel person however with little choice I opted for this place based on their reviews.... A great little spot I must say - very friendly and professional staff, clean and tidy rooms with comfortable and clean beds and a clean bathroom. Great location - good for people on a budget or with limited time....I wouldn't hesitate...

Stayed here one night and had the deluxe queen room with a great view. Best place! Super friendly and helpful staff who patiently answered my million and a half questions, clean, and great wifi. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Also great downtown location and steps away from everything you need.
