    I only stayed here one night as a stopover, but the beds were comfy and quiet, the facilities were clean, and the staff was very helpful. Food places and grocery store in walking distance and neighborhood felt safe.

    Super chill, lots of areas to sit and meet other people. The CLEANEST hostel kitchen I have ever seen or used! Very lovely staff who were more than willing to help with any request.
