    Nickel and Dime Everything

    Stayed in a room as a family of 5. I'll admit that this is the first time I have stayed in a hostel but it wasn't something we will do again. Room was small, only 1 outlet in the room for 5. No towels in the room, had to pay extra for towels. No wifi as mentioned, except in the lobby - so the lobby was full of students. The wife definitely wasn't happy. The place reminded me of an airline, where everything was nickel and dimed. Next time, just stay in someplace nicer.

    Overall o.k.

    Overall it was ok, staff friendly. Beds were quite hard and when I complained about the shower that stayed cold, there was no compensation. Later another room was offered because heating in mine wasn’t working. That was a nice gesture.
