I haven't been hosteling in over 30 years! when i did it in the past, security was a big deal. Baltimore HI was nothing like past experiences -- it is a beautiful old building, fixed up perfectly -- really comfortable living room and dining area -- great kitchen, and the dorm style rooms were really clean and pretty comfortable. Oh, and security is not an issue. The staff couldn't have been more friendly and efficient. When we returned late in the evening, they fixed us 'herbal foot bath'!
