4/10 Fair

not great
Stayed at a few Hostel Internationals. This was the worst one. No real breakfast to speak of. Not the warmest reception either. Pretty run down. Old building so I am not expecting perfection but you'd think they could get some doors that close properly or some electrical outlets that work.

Friendly atmosphere and a fantastic experience
Truthfully, the area I walked through to get there from the light rail station was not the grestest, but I felt completely at ease once I reached the hostel. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. I had never stayed in a hostel before. It was an intetesting experience. I got the opportunity to meet other people from all over the world. If I am ever in Baltimore again, I would not think twice about where to stay.
