          Great location in downtown Berkeley. That's about the only positive thing I have to say about this hostel. Old, filthy, worn-down and smelly - not what one should expect no matter the price. My best advice is to stay somewhere else.

          The hotel offers no free parking. If you need to park your vehicle during the day, before 6:00pm, you will have to pay for parking. The Allston Way Parking Garage is nearby. You can park for free on the street after 6:00pm, when parking meters...More
