    Great location and price. The bathroom on the second floor had a overpowering urine smell. Luckily there were other bathrooms on the other side. Windows should be replaced with new screens.

    Paid for a private room and couldn’t bring a guest and the excuse was covid when everybody is walking around with no masks in and out the hostel. Mask ban lifted. Barely any water in the shower, no toilet paper in the bathroom, bunk bed in the private room with a mattress so bad a homeless man would prefer the floor. Prefer my car

    Total mismanagement and unfair treatment. I'm a 75 yr old professional man who followed every rule and directive given by the staff. I spoke to the manager on the morning of my departure and asked for the return of my $20 key deposit. He said he would check the computer notes and refund my $20 . I specifically asked him if he'd be personally available the remainder of the morning and he said he would be there. He wasn't and wouldn't answer his phone. I left without receiving my deposit.

    We had to leave after our first night because there was a weirdo there harassing my girlfriend and her sister. They did not feel comfortable there whatsoever. Also the bed was trash. Wasted my money,

    A deep cleaning needs to be done i have stayed in some dives but I've never seen such a cocktail roaches infested place. The atmosphere is of men sitting around getting plastered dont count on getting any sleep i seemed to be the only one using it for a stay everyone else was 21 days then gone for a day and right back it was like a drunken phrase third world house

    This is one of the worst places I've ever booked. I only did because of the location but it was creepy and unorganized. My friends and I actually ended up leaving the same night because we were so uncomfortable. We didn't get a refund or any assistance! DO NOT BOOK
