Upon arriving to this establishment I waited 20 minutes for someone to come to the counter to service my reservation. I wish I had read the "real" reviews on this place because this place was very crappy for a family to stay. The manager insisted on my family booking a larger double room/suite because we had a two year old with us and said she is counted as an extra adult in need of a bed. We went along with what the manager said because he had a way of talking to us like we didn't know what we were thinking.
The home was gross; not clean at all. Seemed as if homeless people were living there. The room they gave my family did not have much air circulation and smelled like a cat had sprayed in the corners. The TV had a bad tube and flicked in a red contrast only. When coming back from dinner my family was walking through the second room in the house where the pool table was and there were open pornographic magazines laying around in the corner. (In our reservations we specifically stated we had a young toddler traveling with us) Their website says they are a "secure and peaceful place" But no one in my party slept well that night. The hostel is quite noisy and unsettling to be in. The bathrooms were gross including the "private bathroom" in our room. It has ants in it as well as mold and fungus growing in various spots around the bath room. There were also left over hairs in the shower from whoever used it before our stay, I suggest you visit this place if you do not mind staying in filthy disgusting places. And if you really enjoy people who talk down to you and think that people who expect a decent place to stay are crazy then book this place. Otherwise, we went to the Days Inn less than a mile away that was 100% cleaner and safer as well as courteous and comfortable. The cost for a room at the Days Inn was even less expensive. Casa Yallaha place is a WASTE! And a joke of a place to stay in St. Augustine. (By the way, most of the positive reviews on this page are fake)
