    The bathrooms are tiny and pretty messy...seems they have just one cleaning lady for entire building. No excuse that they don't recycle anything.

    The location is great, the staff is friendly, the beds are rather comfy for what they are. The walls are paper thin and it was not clean (especially the bathrooms). So it’s got its pros and cons

    Safety- neighborhood is terrible. Didnt feel safe outside. I heard people had gotten stuff stolen Lockers- They dont have locks to rent or buy for the lockers. If you bring your own, keep in mind the holes are tiny. If you need to buy on the liquor store (go go deli) around the corner sells small ones that fit. Cleanliness- Extremely poor. Cleaner had found needles. There was trash in the corner by the bed. The bathrooms were horrendous. One was clogged with toilet paper and vomit.

    The bathroom and shower facilities were unacceptable. It was so disgusting and gross. Furthermore the area is terrible because there are so many homeless people who are aggressive, on drugs, scary and screaming at girls. Even in the hostel were so many strange people who were talking to themselves, who didn’t clean up after them in the kitchen and two guys in my room kept asking me out for a date. They didn’t accept a no and it was kind of scary. I would never go to this hostel again.

    Hostel was beyond dirty with nothing clean in sight. Showers look as if they were built in a day but were somehow already run down. Don't stay here, you've been warned
