  • We were disappointed to arrive and find out that the hostel only accepts cash. This would have been helpful to know ahead of time from Additionally, says that Chester Street Backpackers offers free WiFi, but this is not true. WiFi costs $4/day. One of the reasons we chose to stay here was the advertising of free WiFi and were disappointed when we arrived. Other than that, the hostel was average. Not our favorite, but decent enough for a night's sleep.
