The cleanliness could be improved everywhere. I left my clothes in a drawer and I found them full of bugs the next day. I found a period pad in my roommate's bed. On my last day, I wanted to take a shower (in the only one that worked), but I couldn't because there was a pigeon in the bathroom.

A note on the front desk greeted me upon arrival that stated the employee would be returning in 15 minutes. My daughter and I waited for over 50 minutes. No apology was given. The gentleman who checked us out of the hostel however was pleasant. The beds are basic to say the least. Be prepared to sleep on half of the bed since a bar goes across the middle and the mattress is thin. The bathroom door on the fourth floor was kicked through on the bottom corner about 1.5 feet wide and 1 foot high. No toilet paper. The most concerning aspect was there was NO WINDOW in one bathroom, only a curtain which covered access to an external staircase. I would consider this a significant safety issue since this was the fourth floor and gives access to the entire building.
