OB Rag readers who participated in our most recent poll, voted overwhelmingly to keep the current “hippie floral” design on the OB Hostel on Newport Avenue.
67% of our readers want the new owners of the hostel, USA Hostels, to keep current paint job.
22% of those who responded want to see the exterior painted over. Seven per cent had no opinion.
In a recent post by our writer Matthew Wood on an interview with the new staff of the hostel, the issue was raised whether the new owner and its management would paint over what Wood called the “OB-esque Hippie Floral Design”.
