  • Misleading pictures. Place is in much worse condition than expected. Toilet in the bathroom on the 1st level had issues with the flush, showe in the bathroom on the 2nd level was spattering all over the surrounding floor. It was overall very poorly cleaned. One plus was that the A/C worked in our room.

  • Warning: 20 USD/person cleaning fee added in addition to the rate and the rent can only be paid in cash!!! Air conditioning was extremely loud and very difficult to switch on if turned off. Room was small and stifling w/o AC. Bathroom was clean but sink and shower were clogged. Staff took care of it when notified. Kitchen was good. Overall, great location but the surprise cleaning fee (per person not per room!), the cash only, and loud AC means we will never stay here again. Not recommended.

  • You feel at home at Greenpoint Lodge. In a cool neighbourhood in Brooklyn, 20 minutes from Manhattan Center.

  • Very nice lodge. Clean and comphy. Bathrooms are shared, but we also have a shared kitchen to prepare small dinner and breakfasr. There's a metro station 20 m away from the lodge, but it's a secondary line, so you always need to change one or twice to go anywhere. I would have preferred a place close to a main Manhattan line. But it was fine. They provide towels, wifi and are very ecofriendly.

  • It is a good place to stay in, it's right beside the subway, there are restaurants near and its easy to move around. The shower is great and it's on a quiet place. The neighborhood is good and the room are comfortable.

  • I loved the area and everything was pretty good--the room was a great price and they had a lot of insights on the Greenpoint region. Everyone was friendly. The only thing was that we discovered two mice in the kitchen and another guest's room. We tried to catch them even! There were mouse traps, so we knew the owner knew about them. I also tried to use the computer, but it was so old that there were streaks across the screen.

  • The hostel is well located, in the middle of Greenpoint and near of McCarren Park. It's easy to talk to the staff, by e-mail or SMS, and the check-in and check-out are very simple. There's a subway station besides the door!

  • Not fancy, but we had a very clean, large, private room at a fair price. Keypad entrance. The lady in charge is wonderful, kind, helpful, and lives there. The neighborhood is not super nice (lots of trash on the streets, pretty grimy), but not scary either. :-) Subway is almost right outside the door = EXCELLENT! Williamsburg is within walking distance - went there for groceries and shopping in really cute shops - very hipster. All in all, it was great and we will return to Greenpoint. :-)
