    I just got here a few days ago the over night was very night. I had to get on a top bunk but I did it. The next day I went to cherry st and got a permanent bed (6 months) . It very clean and the staff is very polite.

    What a joke this place is. I am homeless and was told I couldn't stay there because I couldn't climb to a top bunk. I am 60 years old with bad knees for heavens sake! What a joke!

    Awful place. Having this as an only choice because I'm SINGLE is dehumanizing. Women sleep in chairs. One shower. Ambivalent staff.
