I only stayed here for one night and wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. I really like the character of the place, and even though I was in the room most of the time, seemed like a very social and friendly place. All sorts of people from different places hanging out. The kitchen downstairs is nice and they have a fridge (though no freezer I could find.) The wifi works better than most hostels I stay in which is a HUGE plus, although again I only used it for 20 minutes downstairs. They say the wifi works in the rooms but I never got a signal there. That's alright though I had an episode of Dexter downloaded and ready to watch. Staff seems nice and friendly. It's in a good location, a bit out of centre which is nice for me, but still has a lot of cool places very close, and it's a less expensive area than the main town. The hostel itself can be a bit expensive though, for the area. You could stay in that area and still have a good time but going into town does take some walking uphill a few blocks to get to the tram stop. Didn't use the showers but they looked alright, and they give you a towel to use. Breakfast is also better than most (with meat and cheese.) Locker in room for no extra cost. Definitely recommended.
