Fodor's Review

This family-friendly, well-kept lodging alternative is not your typical hostel: a living room with a big-screen TV and rows of comfortable soft chairs, a new refurbished communal kitchen, free sightseeing tours and free WIFI, a library with books and games, and movie nights. Rooms are both dormitory-style and private for those who want to pay more. Towels and linens are included in the rates. The maximum stay is 14 days, and reservations are highly recommended. College-age

travelers predominate, and July and August are the busiest months. The facility uses earth-friendly paint, carpeting, and light bulbs, and stocks its kitchen with reusable goods rather than paper and plastic ones.
