    The staff was great I was just surprised at the loud television which someone finally turned off late at night. The security is always great. I was not aware of the kitchen access until I saw an employee/guest go into the kitchen unmasked? Oh, what great times I have had there!!!!!!!!!

    This hostel was great value for money. We got to stay in a private room with a personal bathroom and a personal porch. Downfalls were that the decor was way less exciting then from the photos and although our bathroom was super clean it smelled like mold. There was also a water leak in the garage that sprayed water on our car.

    Staff was great and friendly. The place was really empty during the day but that’s understandable with COVID. Rooms were clean. I booked a mixed room for the weekend but ended up with the room to myself which was great. The bathroom was pretty clean. The hostel had a code to get in and keycards to the room so safety was great. Overall great experience.

    Walls extremely thin and next door neighbors had a sound system inside their room playing music loud enough to rattle the walls throughout the entire night. Shared with front desk and asked to change rooms but was told they were completely booked but to let them know because they will kick them out. Well that didn't happen and guests were allowed to stay and continue to be inconsiderate. Thankfully was only there two nights but would never stay again. Good luck if you choose to stay!

    There was no hot water two if the four days I was there. It’s a bit rub down and it’s in the edge of a bad neighborhood. One night I was there I heard a couple of gunshots. There is no coffee and no breakfast, but that’s understandable right now. They are taking good COVID precautions.

    Nobody was at the reception, had to wait outside for a long time before the staff came back. There was piss marking on the step leading to the main entrance which was not cleaned up throughout our st The commode in the bathroom was wobbly. The room had 1 queen bed and a bunk bed, the bunk beds were not made and they only gave us 1 blanket even though we made reservations for 2 people. Rooms are old, run-down, and not like the pictures. Location is good but not worth the money.
