Staff at this place were great, very welcoming and helpful.
Hostel was in a good location, not too busy/loud and only a short walk to the subway. Wifi was also very handy, although not free ($20 for a weeks access) still very reasonable.
Neg points: Mattresses quite thin, and very noisy whenever you roll over! Also there is no laundry on site (coin laundry only around the corner tho, so no big drama)
Staff organise events for most nights of the week, although most of them revolve around clubbing (which isn't really my dig) Stand-up comedy gigs downstairs Thursday and Sunday night was pretty bad, but still free and worth checking out. There are different performers every time so maybe I just had bad timing
