The staff and guests were quite friendly. The kitchen is a decent size but can get crowded at times. The wi-fi signal was good. There are areas to hang out outside of the kitchen which is helpful. Our bedroom (#1) didn't seem to have many outlets but I was able to charge devices in the kitchen while eating. The bathrooms were clean. The location is OK, but you have to walk a bit to get to the downtown area. There are grocery stores (Trader Joe's!) nearby. If you rent a car, parking sucks.

The greeting employee was above and beyond fantastic. Did not need the blanket, thankfully, as it looked sort of dirty. I like visiting here.

Probably the cleanest HI hostel I've been in. A model to recommend those for whom hostels are still a new concept.

I really enjoyed my stay! Everyone was very friendly and helpful. I liked the little things like the small shelf with a power cord next to each bed. The only big discomfort was due to the construction next door; the noise at 7:00 am and the inconvenience of having to walk through the basement of the 2nd building were mildly irritating.
