Amazing location! A bit more expensive than I'm accustomed to paying for a hostel but honestly the location makes it worth it. They give you a free beer at check-in which is awesome. Clean facilities, roomy bunks, good linens, clean bathrooms, simple but tasty complimentary breakfast. I've stayed in many hostels around the world and I would definitely recommend this one! Plus there is an attached bar behind the bookcase next to the elevator if you'd like to start your night off right 👌

The location was great since it was just steps away from 6th Street aka Party Central. The staff was professional, forgiving, and helpful. The lounge on the ground floor of the hostel was top-notch. Make sure to hit up happy hour! Drinks are affordable and delicious! I ran into some really fun people at this hostel and had an unforgettable night.
