I stayed here for a night and it did it's job. The pods and bunks are all in one area right by the kitchen, living room, and laundry room with no door or walls to separate so the noise was a bit too much. Forget about sleeping in in the morning because you will just hear all the noise from...

In town for literally one night with a friend for a girls trip. Neither of us had stayed in a hostel before but love the town and thought, why not? Turned out to be a super cool experience. Very clean, very safe, very impressed. The employees were nice and helpful as well. Beds were comfortable, quiet at night, and cozy...

This is the cleanest hostel I've stayed in. It's location downtown and close to shops, restaurants, museums, parking. It has a great vibe, privacy curtains at the bunks, cozy living area, stocked kitchen, free tea. I felt comfortable and safe. The dorms are co-ed. The hostel is above a brewery; however, I did not hear any noise etc from the...

This is a beautiful hostel that has identity. The workers were very kind with me and the passengers too (cool people). It is cheep and clean, and you can prepare your own food. It is at the downtown, so is easy to walk around this awesome city :) I stayed in the private pods and it was fine.

FOUR stars because of the LOCATION. Can't beat it. The facilities are nice, bathrooms and showers are kept reasonably clean. IMPORTANT PART. The private rooms kinda suck. No windows, tiny, feels like a jail cell? ALSO, if you're booking the private room to have private time with another person maybe look somewhere else. EVERYTHING in this room creaks LOUDLY with...

I came here with my boyfriend having read some great reviews. I'm not really sure what they were talking about. We booked a private room which was small but okay. The single beds are pod type deals with a thick curtain for privacy. All of them however opened on to the communal area. They offer free ear plugs and it...

'Hostel' may not be the right word for this place. It is from a sense of having a large number of people living in one fairly open area. But it's not from a standpoint of quality and cleanliness. This place is classy, unique and charming. And it's well maintained with a high quality kitchen, bathrooms, etc. We had a group...

I stayed here in April of 2016. It was clean and somewhat quiet. As some other reviews stated, the lights out policy is from midnight to 8:00AM so if you are an early riser and go to sleep early, bring sleeping mask and earplugs because there is ambient light that threatens a good night sleep.

I stayed at Sweet Peas for 2 nights last week. The staff was very welcoming and accommodating, it was clean and the beds were comfortable. I have stayed in hostels many times; this was definitely one of the better ones. The restaurant beneath the hostel did not have music while I was there so I did not have any difficulty...
