Buffet breakfast was very good! I wanted to have a outlet and a light just near the headrest of the bed.

Great staff, great facility. Right in the heart of the entertainment district, lively street scene at all hours. Short walk to downtown. Frequent city busses. This facility has what I can best describe as "Third World Wifi." I had to agree to the terms and conditions every time I connected.

Sheets and linen were already on beds, that was great and rather comfortable. 4-bed rooms were really small and the tables in the breakfast room too few and always very busy. Many homeless in front of the hostel.....

When I reserved online, there was no option to choose a room with out without air conditioning. My first 2 nights, I couldn't sleep because it was so hot in my dorm room. The rooms are stuffy and they just gave us 1 tiny fan. (This was in September.) Before my 3rd night, I went downstairs to see if there was anything they could do. They switched me to a room with AC. When you reserve a bed here you're playing roulette because they don't give you the option to ensure you'll have AC.

Great breakfast provided, but crowded eating and relaxing space. Not terrible, but not as good as some other HIs. Room was quiet, clean. There is an elevator but stairs were easy. Wifi was always available. Great staff.
