It served our purpose. We wanted a place to sleep and we got it. Bathroom is shared, stalls and showers. They have a sweet deal on parking with one of the garages near by. Nothing really complain about.
availability, price no ac loud street noise
It was clean, had the basic necessities, easy to access, good kitchen and laundry facilities, safe, convenient location close to buses and downtown, affordable price. It was across the street from a bar and at night the bar patrons were quite noisy until 2:00 am, making it difficult for me to sleep well. Also, there is no parking close by, so people with vehicles need to know that they will have to park far away and walk for about 20 min. to reach a parking garage from the hotel. There is no dining area, so patrons need to eat in their rooms.
It was definitely cheap, that's for sure. We liked that it has a full kitchen every other floor and also many bathrooms. Since it's a hostel, you do share those with others but that was never a problem for us. Even though there were other people staying in the building, I was never in the kitchen with any one or found myself waiting for a bathroom. Also the bathrooms were decently clean and always well stocked. We also liked that since there is a full kitchen there's are dishes and silverware to use (which of course you should place in the dishwasher when done) which came in handy when we bought a bottle of wine but forgot about the bottle opener and glasses. Even though it appeared generally clean and well kept, the fact that there were two cockroach traps in our bedroom and then I saw another in the kitchen, kind of really skeeved me out. Luckily never saw any roaches in them though. Also, we thought we would be getting a queen bed but it was definitely just a full and also not as fluffy and comfy as the other hostel from this same company that we had previously stayed at. The worst thing about the place was the location though. The closest T station is a little under 20 minute walk, which was very awful when carrying luggage when it's snowing/sleeting out. Not fun at all. You can easily grab a taxi but the extra $6 each way adds up. There is also a bar right across the street, so with the loud drunken men chatting it up outside all night combined with the constant trucks and other loud vehicles, we found our room was never silent and it was very hard to fall asleep or to sleep in. Wouldnt stay here unless you're really desperate to save a couple bucks. There's another hostel owned by the same company located at 30 West Broadway across from the T station that is the 20 minute walk away from this one. We stayed there last year and loved it, the $30 or so less a night for this one wasn't worth it.
