Probably there are better locations, but overall, this place was great. My girlfriend and I could stay in hotels, but time after time, we go back to hostels. There's a youthful buzz we like to get high off of and meeting new people is right up our alley. When we feel the need to be social, we go for a... More

I came here in 2009 after a long summer camp. I missed one night so they cancelled my whole reservation but charged the first night - when I arrived they offered me a smaller dorm room and I actually preferred it. One night it was so overcrowded that people slept on mattresses in the upstairs kitchen. It is a brilliant... More

This is one of my favorite hostels I've ever been! The rooms were quite small but comfortable. The prices were really low and still the breakfast was included! You could easily travel around by metro and I found the streets safe even that the hotel is Harlem.

I have a habit of writing long reviews but I literally have nothing bad to say about this place at all. I was here in 2009- it has Great beds, big rooms, big kitchens, great service, excellent breakfast at a great price for NYC. Sure, it is in Harlem but it is fine- I never felt unsafe and the subway... More

The hostel is basic but clean and friendly. Rooms are small but ours had an ensuite (shared amoung the 8 people in our dorm) and was decent enough. The hostel is small and over a few levels (no lift) with the main kitchen on the ground floor, TV and games room in basement and rooms above. We like to walk... More

My boyfriend and I came to NYC for a leisurely weekend and being college students, we didn't want to pay a ridiculous amount of money for lodging so this hostel was perfect price-wise. We took the subway and walked about six blocks to get to the hostel. The neighborhoods looked sketchy, but during the day we were completely fine. Coming... More

At first I was concerned about the neighborhood after I booked the hostel. But seriously it was totally fine! I was with another girl and we never had any problems. You'll have a guy or two yell something at you, but if you don't dress really trashy you're totally fine. Coming home at 2:30 on a Saturday night I had... More
