          This place is ridiculously overpriced for what you get - a dingy windowless room without facilities for $110. It was unbelievably noisy all night. People apparently taking drugs in the bathroom. It's in a great location but give it a miss unless you want to...More

          The title says it all. The hostel was comfortable and the woman who works on reception was friendly and welcoming. Overall, the rooms were nice. Granted the noise from the bar goes on until late but it wasn't too bad when I stayed.
