8/10 Very good

It was too cold...I like that it is unique among hostels and I did become friends with someone who staying in the dorm room with me...Paying a dollar to use a towel and when I used PayPal is unusual...One of the staff raised his voice at me because my grocery bag was on the table in the kitchen. Not appropriate.

6/10 Good

Very last resort...
We booked this place because every other hotel was so overpriced. Our stay was ok but this hostel is the worst hostel we’ve ever experienced. The bed was held up by books, the window was held open by a plank of wood and the surrounding area was horrible. Very scruffy!
