I’d made arrangements for us to stay at a new hostel -
Generally speaking, hostel community bathrooms tend to be a mixed bag consisting of some of the bathrooms being just a toilet and sink or sometimes just a toilet, some being just a shower, and some being a full toilet-sink-shower combo. At Holiday Jones every bathroom in the building is a toilet-sink-shower bathroom and the bathrooms were plentiful, which is really nice, as any hosteler would agree.
And the bathrooms were spotlessly clean, as was the rest of the place. And the beds and pillows were super-comfy. And the air-conditioning set at the sweet-spot of cool.
"Please let me know if there's anything else I can do for you," said Mike after bringing me the extra pillow that I requested. I thanked him and told him we were good.
At that moment, thankfully safe and sound, comfortable in my cozy bottom bunk and all settled in for the night, I couldn't have been better in a luxury suite at the Plaza.
