Great location, bring earplugs
I was in town for the Star Wars Celebration I had a double private bed room which was good but a bit warmer than I would prefer but not uncomfortable. Lots of pillows, an ironing board and iron included. The private kitchenette was disabled with the exception of the refrigerator and microwave, making you use the kitchen on the 2nd floor if you wanted to cook anything. I never had to wait for the shared shower/toilets. The only thing I wasn't impressed by was the free breakfast which was cereal, toast, bagels, coffee and juice. I've been to hostels with much more impressive breakfasts but it worked. I'd really recommend staying here. The location was ideal and easy to get to everywhere I wanted to go. Bring earplugs to sleep with if noise bothers you. I could hear the train passing by, traffic, police/ambulance sirens with no problem at all in my room on the 6th floor.

Poor cleanliness and customer service
Room was dirty they never cleaned shower it has long hairs all over floor and walls when it was men’s room. At checkout I stood in line over 20 mins waiting with one person helping. I asked if there was anyone else to assist as I had to get to airport and she was like you check out just leave card. I was disappointed and asked why they didn’t have sign or make announcements instead of just standing waiting forever and probably even longer had I not spoken up just to leave key at counter which could have saved me 20 min of my life.

Lovely hostel.
This was a nice place to stay for a night. It is a hostel, and we (my 7 yes old daughter and me) stayed in a very nice size room but it was a community bathroom. We felt very safe and comfortable there. They even kept our bags while we wandered the city.
