The ONE and ONLY author's CHOICE in town.

It is not difficult to see why it’s smack in the middle of city and comes stocked with a pool, a rooftop restaurant –lounge with stellar views and a combination bar-movie theater furnished with bean bags and a stripper pole. Needless to say, this is a party spot. But the rooms are clean, the mattresses firm and the fresh bathrooms freshly remodeled.

The hostel’s two new “presidential suites” have dreamy views and flat screen TVs.
