I love the City Center Hostel! Great location, great bar, great employees, beautiful building. Honestly, I'm not sure what else I could ask for, except potential improvements on sustainability? But even that's still pretty good!
The Hostel is in a not so good part of the city (a lot of homeless on in front of the building) not recommended for people who are traveling alone
Excelent staff, accomodation and localization!
Booked into a 4 man bunk. One of the roommates practically didn't shower or change his sheets the entire 4 days I was there, and he also shaved into the bathtub and clogged the damn thing. You could smell him the moment he walked in. Location was a bit ghetto, but hey, you pay for what you get. WiFi was fast but spotty, everything else is fine. Don't bank on the breakfast provided to be anything too exciting. Staff friendly, cleaners diligent. The EF kids that stayed long term were REALLY noisy.
sCOTT WAS ESPECIALLY EFFICIENT IN GETTING ME A BOTTOM BUNK
The staff told me right away what areas of the neighborhood were not safe to walk in. They were very helpful with all my requests, too.
My only wish is that earplugs be offefred to new guests who are assigned to rooms in the building's front side, because of the excessive nighttime noise which kept me awake (even on the top floor with windows closed). Street people were shouting and fighting all night long.
I'm glad to hear that our staff was helpful! Being located in an urban area, it's true that things can be a bit noisy at times. Next time ask our front desk for some free earplugs!
