Mary Margaret Harris | April 25, 2018

Though less expensive than other luxury hotels, these choices still provide guests with a cozy, peaceful night's rest.

There are a number of house rules to be aware of such as no alcohol in the rooms and no guests in the rooms for more than 30 minutes. The hostel does, however, offer an industrial-grade kitchen for guests to use as well as a common room away from management's eyes with a stage and piano.
