    Standard backpacker place. Good kitchen and clean overall. Located above a bar so nice spot to hang out. Bands that were playing were pretty good and the happy hour deals were good.

    The music venue below is not a fit for everyone, it is very loud until late and the walls are fairly thin so revelers coming home late could be heard through the walls on either side. Overall as long as you stay up late or sleep heavily, not a bad stay. Never could find where the free meals were served, but we were there over a holiday so it's possible the meals were not available those days.
