I'd like to see the coupon offered sent for members on the account, so that we can take advantage of it, even if we don't have access to physical coupon upon check-in. that would be and added perk. can this coupon be reissued if we've misplaced it, when the expiration date is 112/2018 ? whom shall I contact ?

Maybe place more emphasis on recycling and water usage: San Francisco downtown hostel does this really well.

Your staff can be more friendly and keen to help. A few are keen most don't put out much nice energy. Premium dorms need a chair and table. My downtown tour had many dreadful aspects the guide kept walking a block or so ahead and it was too long. But keep trying as you and customers deserve better. Do some mystery customer service and you will understand the dis interested vibe of many reception staff. It has cost me 5 years of as saving to come to the USA for a long trip I need to make it count.

I had to leave Saturday and Sunday morning at 5:00am as I was registered for two 5K races. It would have been nice to have hot coffee and a sack breakfast before I left. Saturday, the coffee in the carafe was ice cold. It was hot Sunday morning, but I couldn't find any cups. Breakfast isn't served until 8:30am, which I feel is quite late for any day. It would have been nice for early risers like myself if we could at least a sack breakfast that we could pick up at the front desk.
