I only stayed one night, however, I loved the central location and great atmosphere in this place. Only downside I found is, that noise travels very easily due to the hardwood floor.

Great neighbourhood for the hostel. Robbie was the main staff member who helped me and he was extremely helpful.

Budget meal tip

The reason why we travel and stay in hostel during thanksgiving was because we don't have family here. And they cooked us the lovely Thanksgiving dinner and we eat together with other people in the hostel. I will never forget about it. I love them.
