  • The worst hostel I've ever been to! A bunch of lies! Personnel is rude! It takes ages to check in. I had to sleep in a complete different location in a house far away from all the announced facilities. That house was in a dark place and had strange people on it. I felt very unsafe! Bathrooms and kitchen were awful and there was no commun room! Very very bad!

  • Had to wait 7 hours on the hall to finally get our room. People/managers over there are not concerned about the well being of their customers. In case of any problems, they just wait and don't do anything to fix that up. Their organization sucks.

  • The staff could start to look up the word friendly and helpful in a dictionary. I'm just talking about the staff at the front desk. I arrived and wanted to stay a couple nights, the women told me there is no bed available. After I booked online at I could check in. It was a 20 mixed dorm room. It smelled like their cats were urinate everywhere, the restroom was dirty. The mattress are still in a plastic bag. I would highly recommend to stay somewhere else (like the hollywood hostel!)

  • This was the worst place I have ever stayed in. I ended up leaving (without a refund) within two hours of getting there. It was full of nasty hookers and drug addics. I would definetely recommend not staying there. It's in a sketchy neighborhood as well so be careful walking around. I tried to get a pack of cigarettes from the gas station a few blocks away and was warned by a random guy waiting on a bus not to walk around there.

  • The receptionist girls are very rude, unbelievable,.After I talked to the supervisor one of receptionist Mexican woman yelled at me. I have no idea how they got hired. There's a trashy woman lives in my room smokes, bossy and drunk, tv on 2 am! One of their rule 24/7 AC on. After 3 days later the guy telling me I am not allowed to park back side. All those people were terrible communicating with people. Any workers had no name tag. I can't describe their body type.

  • Staff was very rude, security man woke me up in the middle of the night because I accidentilly locked the door and yelled at me and banged at the wall. Most women at the reception are very rude, they threaten to kick you out and say things like "they drive me crazy" so all the guests can hear it

  • It's a good hostel, you get what you paid for. My rate was $10/day. The common areas are great, with heated pool, a great outdoor area with tables and a bar. And free popcorn. The room and bathrooms were good, nothing fancy, but not bad either. The wifi did not work properly at all. I was told by other hostellers that cell phones tended to disappear, so I was always watchful of my stuff.
