NOT what is pictured here.

The Cosmos Street Podshare is not as it appears on the website. Located on an alley type street. People smoking crack and pot outside. Space is communal(which we were fine with), but is filthy, reminded me of a college dorm that is occupied by hoarders. Bags of "stuff", clothing, dishes, toys..covering every floor, stair and table surface. Glass pipe (pot or crack) was lying out on a bed. Only available bed was on top of the "sound room" , approx 10 " up a wall via metal pipes, no rails or safety in place for that sleeping space. Only "safe" is a set of purse size lockers with no locks. Locks for sale at $3 each. Saw no space for our suitcase. Staff person was nice, said it was only bed and could move us to another Podshare a few blocks away. We left and did not return.
