  • Worst hostel ever. We made a reservation for 5 nights and changed the 2nd night. The windows was broken and we could hear literally everything from the street.

  • Rooms look like prison cells. You cannot open widows. Heating is either shut down or boiling. Only place with wifi is kitchen with dining room. Too expensive for what you get.

  • Great and convenient hostel in NYC. Walking distance to many attractions, not far from a subway station. Staff was very helpful and the breakfast was good. Also it was amazingly quiet at night so everything was good!

  • I stayed at the single room with the shared bathroom. The room and a bath were clean enough. The staff was friendly and helpful. What I liked: the good location, only 7 minutes to the nearest subway and about 20 minutes walk to the Times Square. What I didn't like: tiny room, no facilities to hang the clothes and wet towel at all, quite noizy during the night, you can hear absolutely everything what going on outside. The breakfast was very poor for the price of 75$ per night.

  • My girlfriend spent a long weekend in New York and I felt as if was the most ideal place to stay. The room was nice (A/C and sink), the bathroom was clean, and the noise level was next to none. It was located between the Statue of Liberty/ 9/11 Memorial Museum and Times Square/Empire State Building. There was also food very close by which was also a nice bonus. Lastly the area is very, very safe, as there's a police precinct right outside the hostel. It's an affordable, nice place for travelers.
