Loved staying the the Sweet Pea! It is one of the nicest (if not the nicest) hostel I have stayed in. The general feel/decor reminds me of a modern coffee shop, and the layout is great. My brother and I stayed in the pods and did not find them lacking - very comfortable, and the shelving/light/privacy curtain were a nice touch. Beats staying in a metal bunkbed that squeaks every time you roll over ;) The layout of the hostel is very open - the areas with the pods and bunks are connected to the main sitting/dining area so you will be spared the creepy hallway and close quarters that come with some hostel arrangements. Showers and bathroom are also super clean and modern. I do have to agree that it can be loud due to the live music downstairs, but they do have a bowl of earplugs at the front that you can help yourself to ;) Can't beat the price and location either.
