Stayed over the weekend in a private room (ended up being a room which slept 4) and paid through the nose. The room was basic but clean 👍 The common area was awesome with a very well equipped kitchen and plenty of space to lounge about. Very well located right off Broadway with a tonne of places to eat and...

Loved this hostel. Close to downtown and the river. Modern design & security. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Helpful staff. International feel. Parking is reasonable. Great music is so close. I give it top ratings within the hostel category, not within a hotel category. I would definitely stay at this hostel again.

This is a great place, they are still working on some parts of the building which was explained to us at checkin but this didn't hinder our stay at all, in fact you only noticed it when you went to catch the elevator and saw a builder! The staff are all really friendly and a lot of them have travelled...

The hostel is in a great location and feels new, in fact they were still working on some improvements when I was there. As in any new place I felt there were some things that weren't well thought through such as no lockers in the dorm rooms and awkwardly placed outlets. Other than that the place has great potential and...

I actually stayed here for a concert back in January 2016. I've stayed in about five hostels within the last two years and this one was the best. The rooms and restrooms are clean. The community area and kitchen blew me away compared to other hostels. The overall design and layout of this place was very welcoming. The location is...

I stayed here with my mom on a Wednesday night. My mom was skeptical at 1st since she had never stayed at a hostel, but even she was impressed. I had been looking for something reasonably priced for downtown since I knew we basically just needed somewhere to sleep. The staff was very friendly and the entire check in and...

I stayed here for a weekend and had a great experience. After some issues with another hotel that we had originally booked for the trip, we found this place. The staff was amazing and willing to help us get our arrangements figured out even on such late notice. I was a little nervous about staying in a hostel because I...

We stayed here for a weekend in January and liked it so much that we extended our stay. The facilities were great, the staff were friendly and the location was perfect. We especially liked the spacious and comfortable lobby and guitars!

This place is very modern. It is super clean and cleaned daily. I had an 8 bed dorm that was HUGE. It had it's own en-suite that was also very large. Location is unbeatable. By far one of the best hostels I have stayed in. I would definitely stay here again!!
