This is in a really nice area. The check in staff were helpful. This hostel is quite tired and worn out. Needs a handy man in there to fix a few things. It's relatively cleanish but just old looking so looks a bit drab. The beds are comfortable but no curtains so the morning sunshine pours in to wake you.... More

How this hostel is even allowed to continue business is beyond me. We arrived in the evening, after a long day of hiking and driving, and were told that the water would be back on in a moment. Three hours later, the water was still not back on, but would be shortly. We were not told of any working facilities... More

This place is a dump. They tack on to the price with random fees when you check in, and everything costs extra. Want a blanket? $2 a night. A towel? $2 a night. Access to laundry machines? $3 a night. Hold your bags on checkout day? $10. And the list could go on and on if I wanted it to.... More

Most of the people who stay here are long term residents. The staff are also residents and spend their days in the back parking lot smoking cigarettes. During my 3 day stay there was cleaning equipment in the hallway outside of my room that never moved. The bathrooms were dirty. Homeless people spend the night in the common space living... More

The hostel seems to be in rather bad shape. They have lovely rooms, kitchens, common areas, a piano and a guitar. It would probably just need better care. The bathrooms were not really clean, the showercurtain was really yak. The other beds in the dorm I slept in, stayed unmade for days. The staff was nice, but most of the... More

I would strongly recommend this place for anyone. I travelled alone for the first time and was miles away from home- my very first visit to the US. This place is safe, clean and fairly close to the down town. All people who work at the hostel are extremely courteous. I will surely come back to this hostel. I know... More

Straight up "bait&switch". I was shown a couple of nice good size rooms, then after I paid I was given a room half the size; one with bed bugs I might add.Staff was uncaring when I complained. Self treated the room with a product that plainly said " not effective for bed bugs.just a matter of times before all rooms... More

My flight was at night so I needed a place to hang out and lock up my luggage until it was time to head to the airport. The front desk charged me 10 dollars to be able to chill in the common room until my flight. They charged me 5 dollars to lock up my things. I've stayed at hostels... More

First time here. Never stayed in Utah before, just passing through and wanted to save money. Always wanted to stay in a hostel. If you're looking for a clean, cheap, comfy bed to sleep in for a night or two this place will do just fine. In a nice neighborhood, close to DT. My boyfriend and I walked around everywhere....

It may look a bit borstal-ish from the outside, making me wish I had booked in at the Park Plaza when I arrived late at night, however, it's homey and welcoming inside. The attentive and friendly hosts were on the desk most of the times I needed them. Visitors/travelers were open and friendly. Residents a more mixed breed. I appreciated... More
