What a beautiful building! The location, right in the thick of things. Everything was down hill to walk and easy to explain instructions were given by the reception. Nice old building that has been standing longer than I. This was my son's first hostel and he was skeptical he sat down and started with rockmsockem robots with a total stranger. Nice kitchen, looks industrial.Towels were included, breakfast to but did not partake. Thanks for starting my son out right with the HI experience.

Hot water in women's shower scalding hot & almost impossible to control. Showers in hallway out of order.Improve dim lighting, including in dining area near the kitchen. Crystal -- outstanding in her flexibility and concern for the well-being of the guests. Woman receptionist did not make announcements when scheduled events were cancelled or delayed and could be more knowledgeable. Wish you had a toll free number (the Phila. HI hostel does) to make it easier to ask questions when booking.

I had a wonderful time at this hostel. The staff were nice and helpful and the other visitors were nice and entertaining. The place was clean and beautifully decorated too. I would 100% stay here again if I ever return to Baltimore.

The cleaning staff shouldn't just enter and kick everyone out to clean. I understand it has to be done at some point, but a warning or at least knocking would be better.
