If you want to have an ice cream cone at checkin and a beer ice cream float before you check in, this unique hostel is for you.

The decor is eclectic but to me it was very comfy & evocative of an era gone by. The people were friendly, the room perfect for my needs, the bathrooms clean! Kitchen could use a little work. Signs are posted but the directions not followed. Perhaps larger signage would return in a heartbeat!

The booking on Orbitz was misleading. It said separate room with a shared bath. Did not have my own bedroom, had a cubbyhole in a room that held 8 people. That may have been tolerable, but the room was an absolute sweatbox. No air conditioning, only some small fans that were largely ineffective from keeping the room sweltering.

A Hipster hostel great spot for the discerning yet financially challenger customer. Only draw back is outside train and snowplow noise

Excellent Art, friendly staff, clean room, nice bar and a sauna. What more do you want in a hostel?
