I stayed 3 months in hostel on 3rd as a staff, was a great time and I met a lot of people from around world. The building is a little old, but it is ok. The housekeeping job is heavy for just one person, but still good if you will stay just one month or few days. If you have a good English you can do the front desk and is much better than housekeeping. The staff is nice.. Chris is a great person and will help you with everything you need. Was a great time and one day I will come back! ;) thanks

all the staff left when I arrived and when I've been for two weeks there I understood the reason.

Amy and James were very nice and caring, but the place wasn't how I expected and there wasn't enough staff to take care of the tasks.

This was my first experience in a hostel... ever! And I can tell you that I grew up is so many ways! Hostel on 3rd staff is amazing! I got all the help I needed to learn how to work at the front desk and the other activities that keep the place working well. The hostel is located in the best quarter downtown, near grocery stores, mall, bus and trolley stations, nightlife, drugstores, The Convention Center, parking lots, and restaurants! Just one thing you should all know: the hostel is an old building, and some people may dislike this. But it is all functional and the owners keep improving it
