I had a late check-in and when I called nearly 3 a.m. I expected to get a run of the mill but at the very least groggy desk clerk. Instead by the 2nd ring a quiet yet polote voice came across greeting me with, "thank you for calling the avenues hostel". From the moment of the conversation to my final...

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 staff were super friendly! :) The rooms were clean but didn't get fully clean throughout my 5 night stay (vacuumed, mopped, change of linen etc). 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...
