After recent remodel, esp. kitchen, GREAT accommodations. Prior digs were very good but a bit dingy. I stayed here 4 previous years and was quite happy, but this year was very pleasantly surprised. Nice people, helpful. No internet, but library downtown is only an easy bus trip away.

The house was incredibly beautiful inside and out. The only negative was there was a 6 hour lockout period during the day for cleaning. We couldn't be there between 10:00am -5:00pm. That left us looking for things to fill the day. Syracuse isn't a walking city and if the weather isn't great you'll be stuck out all that time with no place to go. I think a 2 hour lock out for cleaning would be plenty of time. 3:00-5:00 so we'd have the option to make lunch.

Leider kann man von ca. 10am bis 5pm nicht einchecken und das Haus ist geschlossen, was für ein Hostel ein schlechter Service ist. Ansonsten ist das Haus sehr schön und das Personal sehr nett.
