I arrived before midnight, when their office was closed, and was able to check in without any hassle. The common areas are clean and have all the standard hostel amenities. The bed was comfortable but it was too hot in the room, even with a fan blowing. Would be nice if they invested in temperature control facilities. Wi-Fi in the room was spotty. My room was fronting the street but the noise was surprisingly minimal. There are cats in the common areas so those with allergies might want to reconsider.

Should have listened to friends which have already warned me in advance of staying there. I was staying in summer 2012 for a few nights and won't go back. The hostel is not clean with some strange long-term tenants. Just for the record, I did meet great people there as well and the location is great.

The rooms are neat and clean, the staff are friendly and helpful, and the common area was comfortable to use. The stairs are a bit much for anyone with mobility issues, but overall it's a good place.

I want to preface this by saying that in the first two days here they found a bedbug infestation in my room. Deal-breaker, you'd think, but hear me out. First off, I didn't notice any bites, even though I have allergic reactions to them. I only found out because they do daily bedbug checks and informed me personally the second they discovered them. They sprayed the rooms within the day and offered to let me use the staff laundry to kill any that might be on my clothes. They also have an exterminator in once a week to do a more proper check. I'm giving them five stars because on top of this, it's a really nice hostel, run by really nice people, and I wanted to credit their diligence and professionalism. As a guy who's dealt with a bedbug infestation at home and panics at the very notion of them, this basically turned a nightmare into more of an inconvenience. And frankly, if you're that afraid of bedbugs, what in the heck are you doing vacationing at a hostel? The character of a place is defined by its response to adversity. Hi Hostel St. John's handled one of the worst things that could happen in a hostel perfectly, and I recommend them wholeheartedly.
