It is in a shady alley-way in the middle of downtown, and from outside it feels a little shady, but the rooms are okay, and the staff is very friendly and helpful. Other than the outside appearance, the rest was great, and it definitely was not the worst place I stayed at. I read in a previous review that homeless people 'are let in' for whatever reason, but I found that to be false. They save up whatever money they can scratch up to stay the night at the hostel. For an average of 20 dollars they get a warm bed, a hot shower, and a warm breakfast. It makes perfect sense. And as long as they pay, it really shouldn't matter.
