We booked this hostel very last minute, which isn't unusual for us. The owner likes everything paid in cash which is fine by us. When we arrived we were shown to our room which was a private room as we had felt we needed a few private nights to ourselves. The room had a double bed and a single above... More

I stayed here when I first got to SLC, and again a week later, for another week. When you first enter, it looks cool, great neighborhood, old building, huge community area with couches and TV, great community kitchen where people are always cooking and sharing. Cliff, one of the front desk guys, is a pretty nice guy, with a pleasant... More

Staff was rude when checking in and out. Rooms are disgusting. There is a lot of noise. "Private bathroom" is just a toilet placed next to the fridge and microwave. It's very unhealthy. Wouldn't want to prepare my meal there. If you are traveling with a friend, don't book a room with a private bathroom unless you want to go... More

Staying here as I write this review. A nice experience; everybody on staff is friendly and personable, eager to be of assistance. Don't be in a hurry when you check-in. Hum-drum but functional building in a quiet shady-lawn neighborhood. A friendly and clean place. Went with a private room for 4 persons- It is a hostel, not La Quinta; however... More

This has truly been a very strange experience. The hostel seems to be run by staff older with social and mental health challenges. I say this not at all in an ironic or an amusing way. I mean to say that some of the people who are in charge don't have the capacity to greet or interact with guests in... More

DISHONEST STAFF! DONT STAY THERE!!! This hostel is extremely dishonest. They charge you money randomly on the card!! It took them 30 mins to check-in for me the first day when I arrived. I booked this horrible place 4 nights via booking.com for $189 but they charged me $198 on my card. I asked the hostel why they charged me... More

Very few hostels balance themselves out with positives and negatives quite like this one does. Starting with the positives, it is affordable and in a quiet and lovely neighbourhood that is only a 15 minute walk to downtown and only 3 blocks away from the nearest supermarket. It also has a really spacious communal kitchen and lounge area with a... More

I had a late check-in and when I called nearly 3 a.m. I expected to get a run of the mill but at the very least groggy desk clerk. Instead by the 2nd ring a quiet yet polote voice came across greeting me with, "thank you for calling the avenues hostel". From the moment of the conversation to my final... More
