  • Wi-Fi kept going out. I asked if they could reboot to see if that would help. They said it wouldn't help. It's because we have about 200 people on it. You can't rely on it.

  • I feel this place had potential, but isn't amazing. Location is awesome, in the garden district (which is cool) and not a long street car ride to downtown. The manager was not friendly or helpful. They also stuff as many beds into one room as they can, which becomes quite crowded. This wouldn't be my first choice, but it was not aweful. I would recommend another before this one.

  • I have nothing nice to say about this place. My friend and I are traveling USA and this by far is the worst hostel we have stayed. Old creepy men living in the dorm rooms, the shower had a gigantic hole in the floor that had been "fixed" with a floor mat and baking tray, welds on the bed had broken so the bed was held up with a cinder block and milk crate. It should be shut down. There are no lockers. We had another hostel booked the following night and were refused entry due to staying here.

  • This place is awful. Drunken old men staff the place and eerily force themselves into the conversations of the travelers. There's one guy (who pretends to be the boss) who literally drinks from the time he wakes up to the the time he goes to bed. In addition, they have bed bugs and several guests were infected by it.

  • I feel they never clean the bathroom while i was living there. The bathroom is gross. And the door is hard to lock and open. We complained to the staff, and they just told us to pull the door harder, but...why not just fix it and no customer will have problem?

  • This place is a good hostel. It's what I expect from a typical hostel. The bad reviews I've read had higher expectations out of hostels that I think are unfair. Plusses: Location Freedom Atmosphere Minuses: Lack of Lockers

  • Please stay away from this place. I have travelled a lot and probably stayed in about 50 hostels from Brazil to Australia. It's not like a hostel at all. It is more like a shelter, believe me! The were some women that lived in the room. The beds are falling apart. The water had no pressure at the shower. And I am sure I got bitten by bedbugs. The linen had so many stains. One woman at the room was drunk and smelling so bad. It was a terrible experience.
