    Met a lot of cool people here and am glad I stayed. Chill lounge, felt safe here, super close to downtown and nightlife. However, it was a bit dirty and smelly. I’ve stayed at other hostels that I didn’t hate taking a shower at as much as this one lol.

    My I.D is a few months expired. Due to the current state of the world it has been difficult to obtain a new one. Although I've been able to fly/travel across the country, have a valid military I.D and college I.D those credentials were not enough. Being from Louisiana I've been displaced by CoVid and the recent hurricanes. Kinda sucks when you have a reservation and the money to pay, but still get turned away. I ended up on the street for night.

    It's a rough place to stay. Slot of aggression at the front desk. A mini- sub culture of god knows what roaming the halls and facilities. I appreciated the free breakfast tho ... Can't beat a complimentary break feast and coffee. Probably would not stay there again tho. Jorge-

    I had the worst experience in this hostel. This place smells bad, old building, dirty everywhere, very uncomfortable old bed for sleep, cockroaches running everywhere, including in your bed. This place needs to be closed. I can even had the courage to eat their breakfast. Please don't stay at this hostel.

    Staff left me a paper receipt for an early check in. When I leave they try to charge me for an extra night and kept my deposit. Be really careful with any written rececipts. Otherwise many homeless person's, security issues. Kitchen is dirty. There are simply nicer places to stay for the same price or cheaper.
