This hostel has a friendly homey kind of atmosphere. It is near the university and much quieter than down on the strip. This is the place if you want that kind of atmosphere. It also attracts an older crowd. I like taking the bus to Ward Beach to swim. This place would make a good elder hostel. Younger and older seem to do just fine together here. There are lots of buses to get you around the island and some are express. I suggest you sell cold drinks here and up the funky decor.

Thank you for your comments. Sometimes the younger travelers like to stay here to 'rest' in between dashing around the globe! We're waiting for the soda/water machine to arrive. "Up the funky decor" will happen with time and money.... Sue

Everything was excellent, don't have any suggestions for improvement. I very much appreciated the lockers, laundry on site, free wifi, the quietness (always got a good night's sleep) & the friendly helpful staff. Best hostel I've stayed in yet! Thanks.
