We had an okay stay at the Hotel Hotel Hostel. There were a few great things about the hostel, and some not so good. The location was amazing. The hostel is located in the cool Fremont neighbourhood which meant there was an abundance of nice restaurants, bars and vintage clothing shops around. There was also a very frequent bus service that went from a couple of blocks down right into downtown. The price was fair for a hostel. I stayed in a private king-sized bed room, which, split between two people worked out to a similar cost to a bunk bed in one of the larger shared dorms. The value for money having a private in a hostel was better than staying in a hotel in downtown, although the bathrooms are shared in the cheaper priced private room.
The one thing I enjoyed least about my stay at Hotel Hostel was the noise. I read in other reviews that it was a noisy hostel and dismissed these claims thinking I'd be fine. However, the noise from the pub downstairs and the street was super loud and went on into the early hours of the morning. This ultimately had a big impact on getting to sleep at night.
