Loved my stay in jail
The bed was comfy, staff welcoming and helpful. 2 comfortable common rooms (one with tv, the other open on the exterior. The hostel is very quite. I had a lot of fun looking for the details put into place to carry on the jail theme.

Hostel with a twist!
We checked into the hostel for a 2 night stay. The room was to be expected but larger than we thought which was a bonus for a cell! Bed very comfy. Shared bathrooms were clean and warm. Kitchen area has everything you need. Place does echo but all quiet by 10pm. We got a great nights sleep!
