Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Other guests made our staff horrible though the staff were lovely. The beds were comfy but the bathrooms were a joke; I don’t know how often they were cleaned but I had other people’s head hair stuck to my feet every time I went in there.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Disliked: Amenities
Room was nice and clean, location was great, just a fifteen minute walk and you are downtown. Kitchen was one of the worst I’ve seen in a hostel. 3 forks, 5 spoons and very limited plates/bowls. I know the hostel can not control how people leave the kitchen how we maybe If everything wasn’t broken or missing more people would appreciate it?!

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Dryer was broken. Units were noisy until early morning hours. Place is literally a bus station with 5-6 parking spots of it's own (You'll be directed to open parking several blocks away). Rude staff with a capital R. One fat-faced angry man in his mid-thirties was particularly unpleasant and may very well be descended from trolls.
