    I appreciate the whole program, from being able to book online, the very convenient location to downtown, the atmosphere and variety of guests, the services offered, and especially the awesome friendly and helpful young people who staff your hostel.... I anticipate staying there many more times in the future, Cheers

    I think the mattresses/ beds could be more comfortable, this is not just me, I heard it a few times from others. And I have noticed that the price of a night's stay seems to have increased by at least 20% over the past year or two, I apologize if this is in error. No worries, it still represents good value..Cheers

    Ignorant and rude. I recommend no 1 to stay there, staff will take anything if you dont have it strapped to yourself. Stay at the International Hostel its better service and way nicer staff...

    Very good

    Great location, really close to downtown. The staff were very friendly and gave good advice about things to do in the area.

    Don't go here if you are looking to get some rest, there are always people up and it's hard to get to sleep some nights. If you're here to party, this is the place.

    Good

    The front desk staff were really helpful and were able to answer all of our questions about the area.

    The rooms were really small and the lockers were in the centre of the room making it really cramped and difficult to move around. It was 8 people to a room and most of us had to drag our bags out to the corridor to be able to pack/unpack anything.

    Just a long walk from the Greyhound terminal. I think they're a bit far out, weren't very clear on transport options. The online maps avertise they'd stop near the front of Samesun.

    Lage,das war das einzig positive

    Alles!!!Der Preis pro Nacht ist ein absoluter Witz. Die Türen knallten bis 5uhr morgens, ein paar betrunkene Gäste waren so laut,wir konnten die nacht nicht schlafen. Das Zimmer ist kleiner als eine Gefängniszelle, das Bett eine Katastrophe. Für zwei Leute viel zu schmal und vorallem zu kurz. Jede einzele Feder merkt man. Das Bad war ein Alptraum. Urinflecken und Haare vom Vorgänger

    Fabulous

    zelf maken van het ontbijt was leuk om te doe locatie en alle faciliteiten waren heel goed douches waren ruim en netjes

    er was wel gratis wi-fi maar voor het gebruik van een computer moest je wel betalen (1$ per 10 min.). Vond ik een beetje gek.
