Stay was excellent, I am very pleased and it's gratifying to see improvements from one year to another. Now I like the system of cards for the rooms. Good job!

Close to public transportation that links you to the airport and train station. It's downtown location is convenient to visit local sights and landmarks, with decent restaurants and pubs nearby. Just always be aware of your surroundings, especially for solo travelers. The staff was friendly and helpful; the building secured, clean and tidy (I didn't have opportunity to use the kitchen).

Had short layover in Baltimore: arrived just before Taco Night (7:30pm) & able to meet fellow hostelers over meal. Had planned tour that brought be back at 12:30am. Had to leave at 5:30am for airport. Before bed, I spent some time in most beautiful common room! While planning drive to airport, lovely staff came to check on me. Bed was comfortable: wanted to miss my flight. Upon leaving, staff helped me with bag & directions. Too sleep deprived to recall names but remember kindness. Great staff!
