Breakfast was pretty good. Coffee EXCELLENT. Ventilation system in the private room in the basement is very LOUD. Don't know why. Staff VERY helpful in every way.

LOVED this hostel. My reason for rating comfort "good" only is because the ventilation system in the room was very loud and the bed could use a better mattress. This is among the best hostels I have ever stayed at. It is CERTAINLY the nicest private room!

The room smelled funny. Kind of musty. The rest of the hostel areas we were in didn't. Otherwise it was excellent.
