    I stayed for 4 nights in 40 Berkeley and really enjoyed my stay. The staff were all friendly and helpful and it was in a great location. I was travelling alone and had a single room which was very clean and warm. My only complaint was the room was a bit too ward but opening a window solved that. The showers and toilets were spotless and I never had to wait when I wanted to use the facilities. The breakfast was totally amazing and kept me full until dinner time.

    ripoff. Could have stayed at a 2 or 3 star hotel for the same price. Paint the walls rip up the nasty carpeting do something about the god-awful lighting in the rooms. Wouldn't cost much at all to make this a far nicer place. Hostel was embarrassingly bad compared to most ive been to.
