This sprawling hostel was an immediate success when it opened in 2012. The public areas in the six-story LEED-certified building look like part of a contemporary boutique hotel. The dorm-style accommodations aren’t as pretty—it’s a hostel, after all—but the bright walls and efficient floor plans make them more pleasant experience than you might expect. Most units (all men, all women, and mixed) hold three bunk beds, with shared bathrooms. For a private bathroom, book one of the 22 private units. You can use the provided linens or bring your own, but a local law forbids sleeping bags. The clientele is the customary mix of backpackers, students, youth groups, and thrifty travelers of all ages.
