  • Very poorly laid out hostel. Definitely a step down from other HI hostels on the East Coast.

  • When you arrive at first you have to wait in line for a really long time until the staff, who are too busy chatting with one another, do check you in. Esther is the worst of all. She is so rude to all guest. They give you a security card to enter the room, but mine didn't work, so again waiting in line. The people at the cafe downstairs simply ignore you when you want to get a coffee. I tried it in Spanish too but didn't help. After checking out I wanted to leave my bad there: 5 dollars!

  • This was my first time staying at a hostel alone, so I was a little nervous, but the hostel was excellent. It was pretty clean, the food at the cafe was good, it had a lot of comfy sitting areas inside and a nice patio, and pretty comfy beds. It was a little noisy at night (I was right next to the bathroom) but it wasn't too bad. It was also only a block away from the subway. The only thing was that it was a little pricey compared to other hostels in the city.

  • Everything was perfect, but take into consideration that it's full of teenagers, with all that that implies.

  • Fantastic atmosphere, staff are extremely helpful & friendly. The facilities are spotless. The hostel arrange some fantastic social events, which is great for those travelling on their own and looking to meet new people. Overall, my trip to New York was made even better thanks to this fantastic hostel!

  • The staff were so uninterested in what they were doing. I found my first impression very disappointing because of this but all in all I enjoyed my stay.
