  • 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!

  • 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..

  • 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.
