Room I stayed in was a little dirty, (pistachio shells and a sock under my bunk) but that may have been because most of the other people in the room were long term guests, who'd been there a few weeks... so I'm not sure how often they clean the rooms. Other guests were friendly and nice though.
Bathroom was quite clean, and kitchen was moderately clean.
Lockers exist, but bring your own lock.
Breakfast provided was pancakes (make your own), bananas, pb & j, and somewhat uninspired muffins.
Location is very convenient, but also a little sketchy if you're a female heading there alone at night. (That corner of downtown is deserted at night, and there were people who seemed a little sketchy wandering around nearby.)
