    After weeks of staying in busy and crowded hostels, this was a really nice break. The hostel only sleeps 16 people, so it was nice and calm most of the time. The rooms were very nice and colourful, and the bathroom was super nice too....More

    Thank you for leaving us the review! We do not offer laundry facilities, but there are some local ones that aren't too far away (Market Cleaners is right on Dalhousie, a few blocks away). We certainly hope to see you again!

    Thank you for leaving us this review! It is true that we do not have air conditioning in the rooms (all of which have fans and windows that open), but our common areas are air conditioned. We certainly hope to see you in the future!

    Although this advertises as air conditioned, ONLY the downstairs has air conditioning, NOT the rooms. The rooms are small, with people packed in close and it was so so hot inside at night (and not even that warm outside). No one could sleep that night--...More
