I called ahead to confirm availability.... It would be $23 per night. No reservation was needed. Less than two hours later I arrived to check in and the total was $31 because there was "a convention in town." The hostel was practically empty. I explained that I just called and was told $23, and the response was that "it must... More

The staff at this hostel were really bad - it is owned by three asian people who don't seem to have a grasp on what hosteling is or what is in their city. They weren't helpful when it came to asking for things to see. The fact that you have to check in to a private dormitory if you arrive... More

We (two Brits road tripping across America) stayed at The Avenues hostel for two nights in July. We found the hostel ok - after all, it was just a stop off on our way, and if that's what you're after then it's spot on, especially for the price. + TV in the dorm room - this is unusual in terms...

The girl running the front desk is beyond rude. She had the audacity to get mad at me because she accidentally locked the front door so I had to call her to let me in. Then she refused to speak up despite the fact that her air conditioner was on and a guy was mowing outside the window. The hostel... More

Do not stay here unless you like being treated like a bum. The desk people are rude and the place has the air of a skid row flophouse. The location may be ok, but this does NOT trump the negatives, plus the private room rate is more than for what you can get a good hotel room downtown.

This is not a hostel, its either an old folks home or a half-way house - or both. My friends and I were passing through, looking for a place to stay where we could meet other travelers and hear about SLC - ya know, hostel things. Checking in there were multiple signs saying "no refunds", this was a bad sign... More

You may want to avoid this place if you are not a seasoned traveler. After i came back from my ski outing my roommate from germany told me all his cash had been removed from his wallet. The only time he could pinpoint was when he went to use the bathroom and left his wallet behind another man had been... More

I have just checked in. The girl at the desk put me in the wrong room, a room where homeless guys are put. While I was waiting, she was checking in a bum. I'm not being a prude- most hostels are great. This one is creepy, there is almost no security and they won't give you a refund if you... More

Okay, so this is the only hostel in Salt Lake City (that I could find anyway), so for that reason, chances are that backpackers, like myself, that are passing through, are going to end up here. Luckily, I don't think there is much in SLC to detain you for more than a night because that is as long as I... More
