  • I never saw anyone working there, but I never needed to talk to someone as the check-in/check-out process was automated. It was a happy-feeling place, everything in good shape. However the walls are a bit thin so early-risers woke me up one or two mornings with their animated conversations despite quiet hours before 8 a.m.

  • I thought it was a bit strange that there was no host there to greet the guests. It made the place feel less cared-for, and even a little bit less safe. I appreciate the computerized check-in because it allowed me to arrive at the hostel late at night, but I wish there could have been someone at the hostel throughout the day at least... I received a single room with just one bed, for the normal price, which is why i said that the "value for money" was "excellent" and the facilities were good

    ==STAFF== We have a friendly housekeeping staff on site during the morning, and the management is always available by phone to help with anything. We are also in the process of hiring an office aide to be there weekday mornings. Fewer staff means that guests save money. ==SAFETY== We have security cameras and codes to get into the building. Most guests feel very secure. ==TESTIMONIALS== ...Very safe area, and the building is secure. Joey S. England, UK

  • Cute hostel located close enough to the city centre. Right near public transport. Clean, simple, good atmosphere and a great stay. Couple of down sides: no one on reception desk due to online checkin so we couldn't get any local inste and the springs in the bed were noisey. Minor issues, would recommend if you are looking for a simple clean place to stay in SLC.

  • Fair warning, there is definitely a mystery management vibe, the only staff member I ever saw was the cleaning lady. However, that being said, the place was clean, quiet, and within walking distance of downtown even in the winter (about 20-25 minutes walk from Temple Square, shorter on the UTA). I went in December, so not exactly tourist season (I had the girl's dorm to myself for 3 nights) but I still met some cool people. I'd recommend the place highly!

    ==STAFF== We have friendly housekeeping staff on site every morning, and we are currently hiring office staff for morning hours. We are also available by phone to answer any questions. ==CAMERAS== The security cameras are for the safety of the guests, because it is a self check-in hostel. Most guests find our property very safe and comfortable. =TESTIMONIALS= feel safe and its in a great place. Marianne V Oregon, USA
