  • 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.

  • As we all travellers know, HI is almost a warranty of quality. The hostel is very good located, far from the key points (Times Sq, 34th street, etc) but it's really easy to go there, it has 2 MTA lines near. The atmosphere is 100% thought to make the pax to talk and relate. You have the opportunity to talk with other people or stay at the patio by yourself listening music (i did both). I super recommend this hostel.

  • I arrived in the evening. The staff was very rude: No Hi, No "Welcome". suddenly the person serving me disappeared and another person came and asked me to come to another counter with all my luggage ("If you wanna stay at this place, you have to come over here"). When paying, one dime slipped and fell to the floor. the guy got really rude and threw a penny towards me when giving me the change. besides, the unpleasant staff, the rooms were ok and clean.
