could not be happier with my stay here. I actually thought the rooms themselves were just as nice or nicer than major hotel chains.

The place sheets had stains on them and were dirty. I noticed that someone stole my headphones from the room we were staying in whilst we were out. They took our own towels from the room one night and didn't even replace them. We noticed on the last day that the hotel/hostel had a notice from the local authority saying the place was not deemed suitable for guests to stay there. Don't stay here- I honestly would recommend you stay somewhere else!!!

Don't really recommend this hostel/hotel whatever it is. Not good value for money at all. There was no area for catering so couldn't even get a coffee. Security wasn't the best, anybody could have just walked in. Also there must have been some DIY going on above our room for we were lovingly awakened by drilling and hammering. Don't think they should have put anyone in there, or at the very least told us there was building going on. Couldn't relax there. Don't waste your money.

Not like other hostels (we have stayed at a few this trip in various locations) who have friendly, helpful and happy staff. This is more like a hotel with grumpy, unfriendly and unhelpful staff. They charged us $2 per bag to hold our belongings on our last day before our flight and also charged us $2 to print our boarding passes for our flight. Rooms are clean and comfortable but room however was small. Location however was great!

Had cockroaches, staff didn't seem to bothered (Although the two guys are very helpful). Bathroom facilities aren't great always flooding. Pictures aren't the same as on online for the cheaper rates, but deceiving thinking you are getting nice twin double beds and ending up with bunk beds.

Had to pay $400 more than we were told. After double checking, we had to pay $20 less than we were told, weird.. We got to our room and got only 1 bed instead of 2. After complaining, we got another room, but were told to talk to the manager the next morning. No hot water. Next day, we were put in a room with 1 bed and a little bed on wheels (injured shoulder and neck after a week), the floor was crooked and weird smell. Staff was disinterested and we didn't feel welcome at all.

Excelllent location, one block from the metro station, next to wallgreens, 7eleven, mc donnalds, supermarket and restaurants. Close to central park. Very clean and comfortable rooms, they changed towels everyday and had the beat shower ever!! It's atmosphere is more of a hotel than of a hostell. My only complaint is about the wifi, that didn't work sometimes. I stayed there for 11 nights in a room for four, and would definitelly stay there again and recommend it. Very good stay!!
