“Overall excellent standards were upheld”

The Fort Boutique is like The Ritz of hostels (compared to previous hostels I have stayed at). There are only three things I can criticise:
- The price was almost outrageous, however I did book at late notice during peak-time
- Kennedy's Bar, which to the side/below the hostel gets very loud at night
- the dorm rooms got very stuffy as a result of closing the windows to keep out as much noise from the bar. During the day we kept the door open when somebody was in the dorm room to let as much air in a possible.
