  • 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.

  • Stayed eight nights and did not experience any complications - reliable room service, 24/7 reception, fast wireless connection, community kitchen and television, bathrooms within dorms. Linen and towels included. If you need help anyway, you should ask the friendly staff - as long as you're polite, they are as well and they used to speak english and spanish both. And yes, there is highway noise around the clock, but doesn't that make the NYC feeling right?

  • Bathroom & dorm was clean. However there is no restaurants in the hotel, you have to go out.Moreover they don't provide any locker facility for your belongings. You have to take care of this. WiFi was pretty slow.
