This was my first hostel experience. The staff were very helpful and the location couldn't be beat. The hostel is located close to a train line and across the street from the awesome City Park. As noted there were plenty of bathrooms (although they were all off the kitchen, which was unfortunate) and showers. There was a computer with internet connection in the main room and many guide books and resources.
I'd reserved the single room, which is across from the reception desk. It was noisy due to the doorbell and people coming and going. That would have been tolerable since I'm a heavy sleeper, but the configuration was problematic. The room shares a wall with one of the dorm rooms. There are windows in the shared wall which severely limits privacy, especially since the curtains and operation of the windows is controlled from within the dorm room. I checked in and went to my room to get changed, but couldn't because the windows and curtains were open and I couldn't close them on my side of the wall. That was my biggest complaint.
If you're looking for a cool space with dorm beds and friendly staff, this is a great hostel. If you're looking for a single room with privacy, you might want to reconsider.
