Stayed for Memorial weekend with a large group. We were pleasantly surprised at how clean and modern the accommodations are. Comfortable beds, sufficient locker space, friendly staff, and decent kitchen. As hostels go, very good indeed.

flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
