I have to concur with other reviews - the bed is truly uncomfortable. I have to wonder why they keep these thin mattresses when there have been so many complaints. One longtime guest told me to request a bunk bed next time - more comfortable he said. The hostel was clean and secure. It's obviously in a remote location, much better for those with a car. I took the bus from downtown and walked a mile, fine for me.
Liebloses Frühstückangebot (Bereitstellung von Pancake-Mischung) Durchlaufende Klimaanlage während der Nacht mit hohem Geräuschpegel (im separaten Haus) Kein Zugang zum Schlafraum, Bad und Aufenthaltsraum während der Tagesstunden. Dies um so bedauerlicher, da die JH abseits der Stadt liegt.
I had a great time. Friendly to cyclists!
Staff, Alex, was helpful and informative about hostel and its setting.
Hostel need better local maps both for car trip (what freeway and street exits, etc) and for public transportation as park setting effectively isolates it (+/-) from things.
The staff, especially Abbe, were great & it's in a quiet location, at the end of a cul de sac, surrounded by a large park. There is plenty of parking, but the facility is about a mile from the nearest public transportation. If you have a bike, it's easy enough to get to the Schuylkill trail system.
