This is a great hostel. Clean n spacious with friendly attentive staff. There was always free coffee but I didn't see any free toast or waffles. If I needed any assistance then the staff was prompt to assist and very thorough, caring and friendly. Thank you Bear Hostel I really enjoyed my stay!

I first booked my stay here because of the price, but when I arrived I was shocked at how nice it was. It is literally a newer hotel that was completely redesigned into a hostel. The staff were pretty cool, always attentive and kind. The place itself is massive for a hostel. The kitchen and dining room is huge and kept quite clean (I think they clean it everyday) and the other common areas were really nice with fireplaces, super-comfortable seats everywhere and lots of room.

I'm surprised there are so many negative reviews about this place, I had an excellent time, my room was kept very clean and from what I could see the common areas were clean too. The staff was nice and the price was significantly lower than anywhere else that I could find. All of this on top of the fact that this was better than some hotels I've stayed in, I had an excellent time and recommend this place to anyone!

Thank you for accommodating our request and need for an extra night. Your quiet support in our hour of tragedy was greatly appreciated. It is true that the smallest act of kindness is worth more than the grandest intentions.

Quiet and Clean, centrally located. Good place to meet other climbers and hikers.
Kitchen facilities are the best I have ever seen. The spare showers and toilets are a good idea.
