    Best hostel I've stayed in the US. Bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean, and the location is in a perfect spot just north of the river.

    There was nothing not to like. My reservation had an error in their system, and Freehand still accommodated me on New Years Eve.

    Location was great, the downstairs bar and Lounge was also an awesome addition. Rooms were nice just what you need. Unfortunately the little Cafe downstairs was closed for renovations, but there was plenty close by as it was in a great location to the City, all within walking distance
