This hostel was so impressive. It used to be a hotel, so all the dorm rooms have their own bathroom. My friend and I stayed in the 6 bunk female dorm. The beds were comfy, the air conditioning was great, and they had these big baskets on wheels that slid under the bunks to put all your stuff in. Very cool. There were also lockers to keep your valuables in and they even had outlets inside them so you could charge things while you were gone. Our room had a large fridge and freezer and a kitchen sink. They cleaned the room and bathroom daily, and I even watched her as she scrubbed the shower top to bottom. Very impressive for a hostel. Laundry facilities on site. They provide free breakfast which is really just toast and peanut butter, but that's fine by me. They have a great common area, outdoor deck with a giant fan that keeps it really cool. Very modern furnishings and they have movie nights and free BBQ's. The only issue I had with this place was the internet. The logging on process was ridiculous and once you finally were on it was so slow. The location is great, just a few blocks from the esplanade. I definitely would stay at this hostel again.
