There were homeless people around the hostel and in the lobby. The staff was unfriendly and the hostel smelled incredibly bad. One elevator was broken and the other one was operating very slow. Another guest told us that he was leaving first thing in the morning to another hostel due to the condition of this place. We walked up to our room and immediately left. I asked to be refunded and they said I could not get a refund, so we left and went to elsewhere. I felt unsafe and creeped out.

This is not a hostel with positive energy and nor social activities; it's part SRO (single residency occupancy); I can't keep my food in the fridge without it being stolen from the occupants staying there; it has a dark feeling of hopelessness, depression and loneness. There is this ongoing smell throughout the building as if the occupants do not use deodorant because it lingers on the carpet that should be replaced. The good thing is the location by the train/trolley stations and buses.
This was a really nice place. I only stayed there for one night. There wasn't any common room to meet people which was a bummer. But other than it was pretty good. I would stay here again.
