Very cheap for the location! BUT staff was rude (no hi, just "your passports") dirty, dusty rooms, blood stained mattress, very noisy, cockroach spotted in lobby. Do understand was old place, but the cleanliness was very poor(dust, crumbles on sticky floor) and at least the girl behind the desk could be polite.

It seems like most of the negative reviews I've read for this place seem to be from people who didn't really know what to expect from a hostel. When I visit the city I only need somewhere to crash and stow my stuff. This place was just fine and it was in a great location. We were lucky enough to... More

Pretty Standard Hostel experience, not hotel quality so no one should go in expecting that. The attendants were all very nice and held our bags since we arrived before check in, and left after check out. I felt that our belongings were moderately safe… The rooms are nothing to write home about, not the cleanest, beds like are hard, but... More

3 of us friends stayed here on 19th july'14. They charged 180 dollars altogether which looked okay but proved a low value for money. No elevators, less cleanliness, no private washrooms, looked a bit old and creepy... however the staff was very friendly and helpful. it is located on the highline, with the hudson river bank park across the road....

Very friendly staff, CARLOS gets 5 stars! Spacious rooms with our own personal sink, not a bad location, 2 blocks from the subway, 1 block from the subway and close to the Chelsea Highline (although we didn't really think that was worth a visit). Free towels were available. Not a great breakfast (muffins, bagels, powdered milk for the coffee.) Wifi... More

The pictures are very deceiving. What you see is NOT what you get! This hostel was very dirty! They definitely cut corners on cleaning. There were three shared bathrooms on each floor which were usually flooded with water and covered in people's body hair! The rooms were not inviting. In our room the curtain was broken and the steps up... More
