Lovely welcoming atmosphere, beautiful street with fabulous trees. Found staff very friendly and generous. Would loved to have stayed longer. The breakfast and kitchen facilities were also a great addition. It had everything you could need, the manager was really great and it was obvious he wanted everyone to enjoy there stay.

I made a reservation but canceled 5 days ahead of the required 72 hours. I emailed 3 times and called numerous times to make sure the cancellation was received. No one ever answered the phone for 3 days. My credit card was charged for the full 5 day reservation even though I didn't stay there.

Two of the staff members were horribly rude and overbearing. Humiliated me in front of my guests, treated me like a prisoner and generally ruined my stay, the staff members being Cliff and Sherman. Both were negative constantly and talking down on guests almost always. Jim and Mike on the other hand were a brath of fresh air and this...

The two incompetent workers who checked me in took an hour to do so even though I was the only one checking in. System problems and incompetency issues. Once checked in I was shown my room and bed. I told them I was going to leave and come back in an hour. They said that was fine although their office...

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...

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...

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...

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...
