    Fine for a one night stay

    this place is great for the location the price is very reasonable - the washrooms are clean enough but the beds are very small and it’s an open roof - probably wouldn’t stay again but was fine for one time

    Stayed here one night and my girlfriend woke up with over ten bug bites.

    Cramped rooms, dim lighting, looks like something out of a 1700s spooky inn. Bathrooms are up a steep flight of stairs for most, at least there was hot water. Friendly staff. Would not recommend.

    Love the staff and atmosphere. But the shower had one setting and that was boiling hot. And I woke up with either a rash or bug bites. Now I’m worried that was in a room with bed bugs. which is a big concern right now.

    Good stay, just know some things.

    Great hostel. Please be aware that some of these room have been set up stable style, this means that there is no true ceiling to your room. I was absolutely ok with it, didnt have an issue with it at all. It does lead to some noise but now you know. Staff were awesome, bathrooms were great. Lighting and noise levels were well adhered to. It will seem dark in the hallways but it works. Super cool common areas and wifi was on point. My room, single private, was six feet by four feet. The room was too short for me to stretch out in but did not necessarily hamper or affect my sleep. Use the ear plugs given! Had a good stay. Great location close to sights, restaurants and subway lines. Would definitely return again
