2/10 Poor

The property didn't even open the door after confirming arrival time earlier in the day. Seems racially motivated...

10/10 Exceptional

Very clean facility the faculty and staff were very friendly and helpful and very communicative. I pretty much grew up in this area and for years walked past the location unaware of the service that they provide! Great place to take a load off for an inexpensive fee. Thanks

4/10 Fair’s a hostel, it’s a gamble
I arrived and waited a while for service, but the woman who did help me was lovely as she was tending to another issue. A girl came in before I got checked in and was talking about someone potentially getting bed bugs. Eek. My gut said run but it was late. I ended yo leaving the property early and booked a hotel hotel after one night. Three guys in my room were half respectful, half selfish and inconsiderate.

6/10 Good

Good location. I didnt like the atmosphere in the common areas. Also,the hostel wanted to charge more than the expedia offer. The manager accepted the expedia value after some ponderation (but I found that situation ackward), as the price offered should be the price charged without any need for discussion.
