    A lot of people have negative reviews, but my stay was great. Very quiet room and guests- not kept up all night. Bathrooms and decor definitely dated, but also more than adequately clean. Staff was very helpful. Definitely worth the money. I’d stay again.

    This was good. The last hostel I was at . amsterdam hostel down the street I believe the housekeeping stole my belongings. Why would a hostel throw away a guest stuff? The housekeeping told me I threw away your stuff because I thought u checked out. Aka for u r not gouing to see it again because I stole them.

    This hostel had a good location for going to a nearby concert at Bill Graham Civic Auditorium. It was very reasonably priced for our group. There was a lot of bad smells in the rooms, maybe air it out for next set of guests. Also there was a lack of hand soap in the bathrooms. Overall, it worked for what we needed and it has a lot of potential to be great.

    Good place to crash in for a night! The rooms were little smaller considering they were 4 people.

    My room had a fresh clean smell, however one of the blankets was not clean. One of the showers on the 3rd floor where I stayed did not work. And in the ads for the hostel it showed 2 refrigerators but it only had 1.

    The biggest problems are the guests. Nobody takes care about others, singing, listening to the music in the bathroom during night. They don't flush toilet and leave the fan on, which noise bothers the guests staying in the neighbor rooms. So the Indian stuff is helpful the european guests behave like they were alone in the jungle.

    Staff were very nice. However, the place is unclean. The area has a lot of homeless people during the day. First, it felt unsafe, but you kinda get used to it. It is very close to the subway and bus stops though. 3 shower rooms for 1 floor that hosts a couple of dorm rooms (I shower early so this isn't a problem). I suppose you get what you pay for in an expensive area. Also, only 3 big lockers in my room for 6 people. I had to buy 2 locks so I can lock my stuff into 2 small lockers outside.

    This property seems to have changed ownership in the past too months or so, now being run by east Indian Americans who don't seem to know what they are doing, perhaps because the owners rarely come by. Good: the price. Bad: walking past people shooting up, a cleaning lady who rarely actually cleans (I saw her doing only one piece of work, cooking herself dinner (the owners seem oblivious), unclean, jerry-rigged maintenance, lack of sufficient and strong lockers, doors to rooms seldom locked, etc
