This is perfectly located in the heart of gas lamp walking distance to everything. The staff was really friendly . The decor was so cute! Modern artsy vibe. Perfect for young adults who want a weekend get away to bar hop.

I will stay here again!!

I had never stayed at a hostel before. My experience was only positive. Staff and visitors were lovely. The facility was very clean. I had read before going that the noise from the street at night was loud so I brought my own earplugs. However, they do provide them. I chuckled my first night cuz it was noisy, but entertaining. The location is perfect walking distant to pubic transportation that can get you to all major tourist attractions.

great location! friendly staff

Pros: clean, location
Cons: kind've pricey for hostel outside noise
Location: central in city
for a hostel, it was extremely clean. staff great. awesome downtown location, convenient to everything. clean rooms and kitchen area. highly recommend if you're into the "hostel" thing. Quiet when it needs to be at night (besides outside noise from being in a city of course)
