  • We were there for 1 night. Our room was dirty. Carpet wasn't vacuumed, there were trash. Bathroom wasn't clean. A few days later we were there for 3 nights. Our room was better that before. But it wasn't excellent. Hotel is very security and safety. We left our luggages on a hall for 2 days and they were okey. We greatly appreciate shared well equipped kitchen and shared room (TV, computers, print, billiards ..) In front of hotel is bus station Q19. Hotel's located in very good and safe location

  • I got double charged because they made a mistake. In 2014 there is people unable to understand that if you pay cash they CAN't charge your card too. It's a no no no for location too. You will have to wait half an hour for the first bus to the subway. And if you come from JFK you are gonna have trouble finding the way.

  • Nice if you just need a place to sleep but skip it if you're traveling alone and want to meet other travelers. It just doesn't have a packers vibe, it's a hotel where you share a room, not more. Rooms are clean and ok. Its quite a walk to the nearest metro.

  • I stayed for two nights there. Everything is fine except that the lock on the door is broken, and the locker is too small.

  • Overall a good experience. It didn't make sense that people could check-in at 3am, but I wasn't able to check-in at 9am although someone was there. I had to wait around till 3pm. Reception was 24hrs.

  • The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. Beds were comfortable enough and towels and linens were neat and clean. Lockers in room are nice to have, but bring your own lock (or buy one from the front desk for $5). I was in a room with 5 other girls (3 bunk beds) so space was kind of tight. Know that if you share a room, your roommates may not turn off the light or be quiet until they go to bed, which could be 3 am. Staff was pleasant and accommodating. Lounge across the street was enjoyable.

  • All days, the housekeeper cleans the rooms; and you can leave your luggage for some days in the hostel to travel to another city and come back to pick up it without pay anything. The problem is the noise of the Astoria Boulevard in the rooms close of it; and you need to cross a footbridge every time you come back from Manhattan.

  • Everything was just fine.. I would just recomend to buy an extra fridge, because those two were really overcrowded..:D
