    the only bad part of my experience was using the website which again gave me 'A TOTAL PRICE' without the taxes., which means 'IT WASN'T THE TOTAL PRICE'. This is a tricky and dirty way to do business & lie to people to make them think that the price is less when later you pay more without knowing.

    If you just need a good location to store your luggage and go out for parties or something, it is okay. But if you want to sleep, you will need earplugs...

    The room are clean and nice. But the kitchen is dirty and they say there are lockers but had 3 free lockers in my room and none of them worked ! Said it to the staff but they didn't have the keys and told me to wait the next day, the day I was leaving. So don't count on the locker option!

    My stay this time was a definiate improvement over my last stay a few months ago. I just wish they would clean the place more often, since the kitchen and bathrooms seem to neglected with dirt and lack basic things like toliet paper and sometimes soap too.

    The kitchen: be very afraid, gross, the refrigerator is terrible, no shelf partitions, food and smells leaking within refrigerator making a puddle. The garbage in the kitchen is always a mess with flies and bugs. This is a big issue. The rooms: Ok, bath inside, location is okay, not far from union square up a steep hill.

    Excellent location. Good value for money. Staff helpful. Rooms were clean. Fridge and bins in kitchen were not great, think another fridge needed as I had my food ruined twice from other peoples things spilling on it. Nice to have access to laundry on site. Locks on the lockers did not work. I was travelling by myself and would not go back by myself as there aren't really opportunities to meet new people/social spaces. OK for a group if just looking for a place to sleep.

    It smelt disgusting in the whole building. When we got in, we wanted to use the bathroom to get changed, since we weren’t able to check in yet. The bathroom was yuck. It looked like it hadn’t been cleaned in days and there was no toilet paper either. Our rooms - the beds were very dirty, don’t think they clean them in general tho. For the price it wasn’t too bad but if you want a clean room and a nice eating area you should definitely go for a different hostel.

    Our rooms were not clean and one of our two rooms stank really badly. There is no A/C or even a fan to combat the heat that heats up the rooms on the second floor since the roof is poorly insulated. Even when we left our window- which was blocked to not open more than half- open the whole day it was very hot and stuffy. When we asked the staff for a room spray to at least combat the smell they said they could not help us. The rooms were not clean and the price way too high for what was delivered
