On my travels, I've learned one thing about hostels: they're a mixed bag. Either they're wonderful or horrible. Unfortunately, USA Hostels is in the latter category. The only reason I didn't pack up and leave after the first two nights was because I was paid up for my entire stay, and they didn't offer refunds.
The room was dingy. There were no ladders to the upper bunks, so I had to literally scale the frame to reach my bed. People disregarded the no-smoking rule in the room and nothing was done about it.
One day I returned to my room to discover that my bed had been stripped and all my belongings had been flung carelessly onto a bench in the hallway. They hang receipts on the side of the bunk that are supposed to tell the staff which beds are taken. My receipt was right there, but apparently nobody bothered to read it. There was never an explanation or apology for this.
A few members of the staff were friendly, but most of them were cold and indifferent.
I would not recommend this hostel to anyone.
