Liked: Overall nice place to stay they just have way to many live in staff members that don't do much at all by my count it was around 7 or 8 that's way to many heads for a place that doesn't serve food or do anything for the guest other then cleaning the bathroom
Disliked: Billed twice for the same stay when discovered the night before check out spoke to the manager and we agreed to just apply the already withdrawn funds from my account to two more additional days....Next day came and 1 hour before I check out time the reception who spoke and could understand very little English Taps me on my shoulder I have to leave they've booked my room and are at full capacity the manager wasn't even apologetic and basically just left me with I never told you that it was a definite yes I said we'll see but never told me no either until check out time..... I was cash refunded the money that was taken from me before I left,

A World At Home
Liked: Artwork lives in every hallway and brightens the urban surroundings. The guest rooms are all on the same floor, but there are some common areas that on a different level. People comfortable with college dorm-style living will likely enjoy this elevated version of student living.
Disliked: The plumbing is only a problem if you mistreat it and don?t follow the posted instructions. Follow instructions. How to get bedding was confusing until I asked the reception where I could find some. Clean enough.

Liked: Location was decent, dinner was good (veggie or beef chili and a couple sides- frozen veggies, fried potatoes), most of the staff are very friendly and cool people when you sit and talk with them. They were nice to hold my things for the afternoon and allowed me to sit in the lounge for a half hour or so after my stay.
Disliked: Mildewy towels, place dirty, bunk room smelly, breakfast=cheap bagels, staff often unavailable, no filtered water, loud, one of the dogs running around barks at night, staff also loud then. One worker was rude on several occasions. This seems to be more like a social club for the staff than a focus on running the place optimally. I think if they could balance that and give the facility a good clean and air-out, things would be much improved. Also, maybe have two people working around dinner hours? Warning if you arrive then, expect to wait over an hour to get to your bed.I cancelled my repeat stay for the end of the week. There are nicer hostels and private Airbnb rooms for half the price. This place was $50 a night and not worth it, even with dinner. It would be more tolerable if the only option at $20-25.
