  • The Hostel is fantastic! Only 15 min walking from TSq. Very close to subway, groceries and Starbucks 😊 one and only minus is very loud AC. I spent there a week and it was really good. Nice, safe area!

  • Generally clean, good location and decently priced. However, some of the staffs here are incredibly ill-mannered. I was treated as if I were a child and one of the staffs even went to the point where he wouldn't even treat me as a guest when I was checking in/out and needed some questions answered. I felt looked down upon by his arrogant attitude and personally offended. I would recommend this hostel only to people who are desperate to save some money. Otherwise, please find another hostel.

  • Clean, easy to access, nice staff. The breakfast was the only thing kind of lacking. Day old bagels and the like, but whatever.

  • 1st time in a hostel, but very pleased. Staff was friendly and helpful. The private room was very basic, but clean. Exactly what I needed and was very cost effective. Would definitely stay here again! Doors/gates were left open a few times by people and the bathrooms were a bit tiny. There was a bit of mold/mildew in the shower, but it wasn't completely gross. Those were the only downsides.

  • I got the private room with a private bathroom, which is for two people, but I was there by myself, it was very spacious for New York. It's in Chelsea, which is like five blocks away from The Chelsea Market, close to Highline Park, and close to the subway for the A,C,E & 1 Trains. I loved the neighborhood, and the common area is pretty big too, because they have benches and and indoor area if you prefer to be in the a/c. Everyone who was there staying was very friendly and nice.
