Love this hostel. My only complaint is the breakfast. There are free bagels in shared kitchen, why are we offered only bagels at breakfast? Add more options please, add fresh fruit! Also, please, 24 hour free coffee for guests

They overcharged me. When I requested the receipt, the 3 day's room rate were all different(Wed, Thr, Fri) and were not the same price I saw when I booked. Even the deposit I paid were different. I still have the receipt to prove my reviews. :)

I had two separate bookings and cancelled one of them in advance. When I arrived, they charged me way too much. Only after I asked about my deposit, they refunded it. But the amount was not correct. They said I had paid only 5.12$. Only after I showed my booking email from Hostelling international, I got the correct amount 8.16$. Furthermore, only after I asked about another booking deposit 3.26$, they refunded it. There was still disparity. Only after I complained it, they refunded it.

Breakfast is "one bagel and one beverage". If you are still hungry, you have to purchase food at the Hostel cafe. I wonder they can dare say "Breakfast included". And they do not calculate the booking deposit when you pay. When I complained about it, they said, their system is so old that they cannot know it before the guest tell it to them. What a good system they have!! And they charged different amount from my booking detail. Only after I complained about it, they refunded it.

Great place in a great location. My only complaint would be that the cafe prices were extremely expensive for a hostel - great food though.
