The hostel wasn't clean at all but the beds luckily were quite comfortable. Okayish for a short stay.

10/10 Exceptional

Good experience in these troubling times. Not all customers were crammed into the same rooms. 1 Free parking spot. Clean and quality property without staff onsite.

2/10 Poor

Shared bathroom (also with MEN!) open shower. No privacy at all, not properly described on Orbitz booking, very noisy at 6am for people in the kitchen, no parking (I had to leave the car in the road with payment).

8/10 Very good

It is in great location. Very clean, comfortable beds, big clean kitchen with coffee, tea, some food to everyone like cereal. It's very good that there are towels in rooms. Minus is bathroom for ladies because shovers don't have doors!

It's ok, nothing special, and not memorable (not for the right reasons at least)

2/10 Poor

No reception
I was unable to get my room, since there is no reception and I wasn't informed on getting in touch with the hostel prior to my arrival. Huge disappointment.

Good location but not much more
Clean place in a good location. Apart from that not really worth the money. Entrance to the hostel looks like a delivery entrance. The only way to know is to see the hvc on the sign and something in finish. There is barely any information regarding check-in and check-out; I've no idea if I checked out correctly. The only info I could find was a note at the bottom of one sign saying that I should leave both keys in the room. Bathroom is surprisingly clean, but only one shower working in the men's room for 15 rooms or so. Virtually no sound insulation between the hallway, so prepare to wake up in the middle of the night.

Central location; clean, simple and functional
Convenient, central location, close to downtown and universities. Simple and functional facilities, with a large kitchen and dining room and two shared bathrooms with (old-fashioned) washing machines. The rooms were large, with cupboards and drawers to organize one's things. Good idea to put keys on a hook by the door to be convenient to grab if heading down the hall. Wifi in the room worked without problems. I never saw a staff person but the place was clean. Entrance via key code was convenient when I arrived late at night, but when I didn't see the key safe right away I tried to call and did not reach anyone. (I then found the key and all was fine.) The walls are thin enough that even quiet sounds carry, and the electronic keys are somewhat loud. There is a flight of stairs from the entrance to the hostel.
