The hostel inadvertently allowed a person who was local to Houston and appeared to have psychological problems to stay in the hostel for two weeks. The person was confrontational and accumulated a lot of garbage in the room.

Bedrooms and bathrooms could have more hungers for clothes, avoiding stuff on the floor. Good environmental practices, but could have less waste of food, water, electricity (air condicioning too cold sometimes).
