Comfortable stay
Spacious, comfortable room with many amenities. The staff was very accommodating.

Not For All
This is a hostel not a hotel. The service was terrible. I had to call down multiple times. The "free breakfast" of tuna sandwiches and a muffin was never replenished after our arrival. The location is near skycity, but to get there, you need to pass a homeless shelter or walk around an extra block. This hostel is good if you are travelling and on a budget. If you are looking for good accommodations, I would not stay here. I would never stay here again.

Dont do it
Bed horribily unconfortable. One small step above sleeping on the floor! Breakfast was very weak. Dry sandwich and yogurt. Bathroom smelled like urine. While sitting on toilet your face was in sink. Tiny shower. Only good thing was location and decent service. Would not recommend to anyone.

There is a homeless shelter next door. You have to walk through them sleeping on the ground Very very small room. They bring breakfast the night before. Most egg salad everyday. Apples and muffin. They were good. Several things broken in kitchen laundry door broken but still works. The beds need to be replaced. I had wood popping through. They brought me blankets to put under me.
