What People are Saying

This standout choice has smart, neutrally toned and immaculate doubles and four to seven-bed dorms managed to perfection by the energetic owner Anthony. The cafe is also excellent, with a range of craft beers chilling in the refrigerator and fine food choices. The charms of Fisher street are just steps away.
