We love to live by our mission to help all, especially the young, gain a greater understanding of the world and it's people through hostelling! We're glad you got to experience it first hand.

Pleasant surprise in the middle of the city!

Pros: Price, location, convenience
Cons: Better sound proofing - at 11 pm on a Saturday night I was awakened by the sound of a nearby live band.
Location: Lots of things to do around the neighborhood - I'm not a local and I went there for a competition for my kids so not much to talk about sightseeing.
Found this gem online...just the type of hotel I liked - simple, no frills, cheap, but loaded with features for the budget traveler. Booked the suite with a private toilet and bath. Queen bed and bunk bed for the kids. Excellent!

Arim, I'm so glad your room worked out for you and your kids! I apologize for the noise on Saturday night, things can get rather lively at the 3rd Street Diner!
