Individual reading lights by the beds would be appreciated. Enough lockers for every guest are needed. Location is excellent and the parking pass was great.

I had a great stay but there were not enough toilets. The staff are the most friendly hostel staff I have ever encountered. They are a true gem!

St John's City Hostel is horribly cramped and over crowded - they even converted the common room to another dorm room to maximize revenue/profits. The only place to relax is the small table in the tiny kitchen. The guest/bathroom ratio is unacceptable - only 2 bathrooms for dozens of guests. Plan on standing in the hallway often for a toilet.

If you are planning to travel other locations outside of St John's immediate surroundings and you do not have transport, plan ahead and pre-book a rental car.
