- “ People shouldn't be put off by the location, as the local area is perfectly safe, with all the necessary amenities within walking distance. Also, Manhattan is closer than many people think. ”

“ Awesome place! Beautiful decoration and design. Friendly atmosphere. It's not so far from the city. The neighbourhood seemed strange at first (industrial buildings, abandonned factories, etc) but it seems like many artists are living there in lofts in those buildings. The little shops near the hostel seemed interesting too!
Will definitively come back there if I go again to NYC! ”
Hey! We are so happy you discovered the beauty that is Brooklyn! Please visit us again soon :) There is so much more to see! Happy travels!

“ Only stayed here one night and didn't partake in any of the activities, but they seemed to have a lot of fun things going on. The staff was friendly and sociable. The hostel was in kind of a warehouse area and I felt a little unsafe walking back to the hostel from the subway station at night. My only complaint about the hostel itself is that there were no outlets in the room, only one in the bathroom. That said, charging my phone was a bit of a challenge. Overall, a great place to stay! ”
Thanks for the great feedback! We appreciate your business and we hope to see you back very soon! Next time, check out our outlets in the kitchen- they are located underneath the dining tables! :)

“ The hostel is located in a very cool, hippy neighbourhood. You can all sorts of indie-dressed young folks roaming the streets at night.
A big minus is the location, as it is far from Manhattan where most of the tourist attractions are. I moved to Manhattan after one night's stay in this hostel, but I do not regret living there at all for the experience was great.
Beware that the rooms are not always clean and I seriously suspected that the sheets were not changed often.. ”
We appreciate your feedback and helpful suggestions. Our House Keeping team is on premises everyday and we are located only 15 minutes away by subway to central Manhattan. We hope to see you back very soon!

“ I was overcharged by nearly $100, had to later ask for a refund. I found the staff unhelpful and rude, even though it was there mistake. There was no social atmosphere here at all, by far the worst hostel I have stayed at, and I have stayed in a LOT of hostels. Wi-Fi connection was terrible, it kept cutting out and when it did work it was very slow, it also only worked in certain areas. No iron, even though listed in facilities. Bar played loud music till 3am so you won't get much sleep either. ”
We appreciate your review and will take your suggestions to help better our services in the future. We offer free ear plugs as well as irons behind the front desk reception area. Please join us this summer and enjoy our BBQ's and happy hour in the garden! Happy travels!

“ Excellent location and very easy to meet other travellers. Bar was closed during my stay. Also no blankets in the room, and was cold at night. ”
Thank you for your review. We hope to see you back soon this summer so you can enjoy our summer BBQ's!

“ There was an A/C installed in my room (107) during my stay which made it impossible to close the window fully - that will be a problem during the winter since sometimes it was way too cold in the night, and I was there in May! ”

“ First, the good. This hostel is the most unique I've ever stayed at with the layout and everything looks new. The place is big and it would be easy to not run into another person here. The rooms are only 3 beds which is nice. Bad is that this hostel attracts people who don't know how to hostel. And the SEVERE CONSTRUCTION on the rooms around mine at 730am (talking drills, saws and metal scraping). Which by the way the construction workers used our bathroom and made sure to make it disgusting ”
Hello, We appreciate your review. We apologize for the excessive noise from our necessary renovations. We are working to improve our hostel for greater customer satisfaction. We do wish to see you back soon so you can enjoy our new and improved space! Happy travels!
