My first day place in Slat Lake City which is convenient for you to get the first review of SLC. And you can use the Wifi and computer on first level. Cons are bad environment of living and poor light in your room.

This is probably the worst hostel I have ever stayed in, anywhere. The dorm room was filthy -- all the beds but mine were empty but had still had dirty linens from the previous guests. There was trash on the floor. The kitchen was disgusting -- food left out, crumbs and sticky spills on the counters and table. In the...

I stayed in room 5 which is private room with private bath. The room is a good size, but the window doesn´t open. You have to run the air conditioner to get air, and it faces the breezeway where people go to smoke, so the air conditioner pulls smoke into the room. The bed was very soft and the mattress...

Not to bad of a place for convenience. 20 min to Park City. Close to restaurants and bars. Cool neighborhood. Bring your own blankets and towel. Being a large building, more staff is needed to ensure proper cleaning.

The beds are rock hard but otherwise I had nice quite sleeps. I got told by other people staying there that their are alot of hidden catches to obtain more money. Such as: at...

Was greeted by lovely staff. That was the highlight the staff. All downhill from there. The room was fine. The nearest bathroom was filled with a terrible putrid stench that could only be masked by an air freshener for so long. Thinking about it now still makes me nauseous. We were only there for 2 nights, still 2 nights too...

This hostel was very dirty with no curtains on the windows. The locals stay on one level and the travelers stay on another. On the other hand the people at the desk were EXTREMELY nice and accomodating. This is more of a place for locals that also rents dorm rooms to travelers.
