    I honestly expected it to be worse than what it was. The rooms were way bigger than I expected and the vibe was really chill. The value for the location is a great selling point, and at no point did I feel unsafe when I was at the property (3rd Ave. in general is another story, but that's pretty standard for any major city). All in all, I would recommend the hostel and I'd stay again.

    Great location close to downtown and Ralph’s. Friendly , flexible staff, clean rooms and shower. Warm blanket, clean sheet, lockers at the hallway, warm water in the sink. The only minus - pillow was bad, but I put my coat under it to feel at least something supporting my head :)

    Absolutely awful. We checked into our room and the atmosphere was extremely unwelcoming. Someone else was in my bed and all the staff member did was move his stuff to another bed. Next it just had an awful marijuana smell to the whole place, the bathroom was disgusting, the people in the room had no personal hygiene and there is no where to lock up stuff. We left the same night and asked for a refund. After about 12 phone calls they finally gave us half of it back. Worst hostel I've ever been to
