Reading the reviews of this hotel is actually quite unbelievable after staying 5 nights here! We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom / shower. The bathrooms where good, not private which was a tiny bit annoying, shower was a private room which is fine. Females get their own facilities. The staff are very helpful with anything, even managed... More

Bad neighbourhood. Hotel is dirty but the room was okay and quit modern. Unfortunately a dirty shower and too dirty toilet. Wouldnt come here next time and prefer to pay some more bucks for an other hostel or hotel.

Categorically never stay here! It is an unsafe environment for anyone nevermind females. Cannabis smoking is common place inside and out. Fire doors are propped open allowing anyone access to the building. Shady "hotel" in an even shadier neighbourhood. Beyond unhygienic, bona fide health hazard. As seasoned backpackers, we are used to an element of roughing it. However, we lasted... More

We booked for 3 nights and stayed for just 1. We were lucky - we'd been camping in Yellowstone so we had sleeping bags and roll mats. There's no way we would have gone near the bed. The shower was hot - good point. Bad point - I don't know when it had last been cleaned. There was a ball... More

This place is disgusting and dirty. .. Bugs everywhere, food all over the walls maybe even blood. The bathroom is unisex. And there was no TV in the room.. I didnt even stay 1 night. Then they fought with me about a refund and only refund 2 out of 3 nights when I didnt even stay 5 minutes. The health... More

DO NOT GO THERE! I booked a room with a friend for 5 nights. Although the web site said the minimum number of nights should be 7, we were charged and received a confirmation email. The day we got there the guy that opened the door of the creepy 'hotel' said there was no booking under our names. We called... More

This place was dirty, they didn’t even provide towels, and the room pictures must be of a different hotel because the place I stayed looked nothing like that. You would be better staying at the rescue mission around the corner.

So I thought it would be okay as it was relatively cheap and you get your own room. However a week later I found out that I had bed bug bites all over my arms! If I had the choice, I would have paid the same price to stay two blocks down at the Youth Hostel. Do not stay here!

This is not a hotel at all. Most of the 'guests' are residents of one sort or another, the 'management' is only around during regular business hours. I thought I was a hardened traveler, I've stayed in cheap hotels and hostels all over the world and this was the only one I actually couldn't sleep in. Also, the neighborhood is... More
