Shoestrings is a great place to hang out, have a beer, order a delicious pizza, and meet other backpackers. However, the activity center is not great and neither is reception. Those two however are nothing to the sheer loudness of the dorms. The bar party will go till 2:30am and you will be one thin piece of wood away from it trying to cram your fingers in your ears and readjust the boards under your mattress. Go here and hang, but the dorms aren't worth it. If you're cheap and there is nowhere else (Fallstown is limited), then bring ear plugs and a sleeping pill and you just might survive.
