- no lockers - many dangerous looking people outside, we were always glad to make it to the hostel safely
It was relatively cheap. Free wifi. Closer to public transit.
If you have bags with you.. Beware. It's like a 25 feet climb up these thin stairs to get to the hostel check in and to your room. Also there was hair in my bed under my pillows and on my bed when I first got to my room. It's very loud with drug dealers and homeless congregating outside the hostel. People yelling and screaming at all hours of the night. Also, the floorboards in my room have never seen a dust rag. There was a thick layer of dust and dirt and whatever else on them. The morning I left there was no hot water in the showers; I left at 5am so I doubt people had used up all the water.
Tv doesn't work
The sheets were clean, there was free wifi in the room. The location is close to good stuff.
The floors were pretty filthy, which makes me feel a bit disgusting. The location is the part of town with all the crazy bums.
- not much...
- bad neighborhood - unclean
The hostel its self was nice, safe, and clean.
The area was pretty sketchy. There is no free parking at the hostel. There is metered parking on the street but the neighbor isn't the safest.
Terrible cleanliness condition Poor location with dirty environment and hobos around Irresponsible front desk service when something happens like water shortage due to a leak in the water towel and you can find nowhere for help.
Manuel, the manager was very helpful. The location is good.
The price. That's about it. Oh and they had dish network
The location, no bathroom inside, the looks inside and outside, no parking lot.
Proximity to shopping district (Westfields etc)
Right in the middle of 'Homeless street'
Mixed dorm and bunk-bed!
Not very safe outside.
Price and proximity.
Everything else were poor.
This hostel is near the homeless shelter, you can imagine what will happen!
The staff were helpful. Great value for area. The tv in the room was excellent.
The only major problem was there seemed to be a smoking area for some community social service group outside the window and the conversations were often loud. However i cant see how the hotel owners could do anything about this.
The front desk guy was really chill and helpful.
I woke up to bed bugs all over the floor and bed. I have bites all over me. Not very clean.
Bed was comfortable.
They tried to take a copy of my credit card and driver's license.
Location. Had rooms last minute.
Filthy place. Can cope with the filth grime for a night or two.. after three nights my skin was crawling. Also only one working shower in the whole hotel, so a few of us were all trying to beat each other to the shower.. most awkward.
When i showed up the office attendent was rude and acted like it was a discomfort to check us in. The room was very dirty, and all through the night i heard yelling and shouting as if someone was having a party on the floor below
The employee is good
Many homeless in the area, no fan in the room if come at summer will be suffer Can hear the noisy from outside clearly
"Cheap" rates Ubication near market street Free wifi
No air conditioner Ubication on conflictive street No elevator
There was no A/C or fan also no breese when windos wer open the staff riped us off with the payment and were rude about it i would not trust these people also the location is terrible and the hostel is dirty
The only thing good about this hotel is that u can walk 2 blocks and u gonna be in the middle of unión square, the locaction is good two blocks away from the hotel, but Where the hotel is the street is full of weird people and its Also a little bit dangerous, do not go there u can find for that price or may be 10 dollars more defenitly a nicer hotel
Everything, dirty, no one helps u to take your luggage to your room, the bed had a huge hole in the middle like the grand canyon, we were staying on a room with street view and we couldnt sleep well any single night because there is people yealoing and scraming doing a lot of trouble, the cops shown up every 1 hour for these people, do not go there
