    It was extremely dirty (I noticed this as soon as I walked in) & hot in the building. Staff didn’t seem to care when I walked in and were slow to help me. They seemed annoyed that I was there. The staff and their friends were hanging in the yard until 11:30 at night making lots of noise and with dogs that would not stop barking. The kitchen was a disaster and I didn’t feel comfortable eating or cooking in it. I can tolerate a lot, but I would not stay here again.

    Disgusting is an understatement. my bunk was not ready! I was forced to choose a different bunk.The place stinks so much!its very old and the sheets and linens are not clean in my opinion. The restrooms ,multiple in facility, are of no use as only one of them is in fully functional state. Had to wait for one hour where one of the employees/ bunkers was using the shower. A lady- who lives in the hostel stole my stuff. I lost cash, few toiletries by end of my two day stay🥴 Don’t stay here!!!!!

    Dogs running around house and outside, disgusting dirty hallways (although they ask you to take off your shoes) found a tick in the bed and also got mysterious bug bites during the night. Staff gave away one of our beds when we were at dinner and were very rude when I inquired about it. We could never find someone who worked there. Located in a bad neighborhood with drugs and h****** on the street at night. Terrible experience but only positive was the bathrooms were clean.

    It was not what I expected. It was mostly a group of longer term tenants hanging around smoking all day. I couldn't really tell who was a tenant and who worked there. It was cleaned not as often as it should be, the kitchen had a giant, leaking hole in the ceiling, the electricity in the downstairs lounge area was out, so no TV. The internet cut out at one point. The tenants/employees argued a lot about money with the manager. I've traveled a lot, this is the worst hostel experience I've had.
