Best surprises sometimes comes with misdeeds. We made wrong reservations, and to avoid huge prices we chose to go for a hostel. A big surprise, a marvelous breakfast , clean toilets and showers, with the bonus of having shampoos and conditioners left behind by users, if you so wish. Attentive personel, impecables rooms, WI-Fi and a free computer room. Fruit... More

Not luxurious, but fine for a group of friends. Everything is clean and in order. The staff is polite and helpful, especially that guy with golden beard!! Location is ideal; the subway station is less than a 5 minutes walk away. However, it is a bit expensive. they charged us 75 dollars per bed per night. Another minus point is... More

The Hostel was very good and the staff was very friendly, too. From the Hostel it is very easy to get to every Importanz Place in the City. The Rooms and facilities were clean. The breakfast was delicious and very substantial. However we got a room with no window and the air conditioning was very loud.

I had a very good experience in this hostel. The breakfast was amazing, and I felt really comfortable in my room. It had everything I needed, and to be honest, there is no big trouble about the bathroom, we could all share it with no problem. The price is good, and the location is excelent. It is very close to... More

I spent a week here and loved every moment. It's close to everything and I didn't mind buying food and coming back to cook it. So what if there's one bathroom on each floor. Everyone was nice. Staff and travelers as well. Didn't even mind that there was no elevator. Internet access and laundry facilities on site. My room was... More

This hostel has goods and bad. Would I stay again? It depends on prices of places nearby if they were similar then I would stay there. Pros: Decent room for a hostel (although still small) and clean. Location is great. Free Breakfast Included Printing available for free Price is great for NYC Cons: Staff are very unhelpful Wifi is terrible... More

This place is advertised as a hostel but it's a bed and breakfast. The shared bathroom is one shower for about 20 rooms on the floor with no room to get changed inside. We booked a standard 3 bed room for 3 single guys and ended up with a double and single bed... When I queried the guy at reception... More

We were 10 guys from school who stayed here in october '13. The staff where nice and helpful. It was clean and the location is perfect. They serve a great breakfast, which is prepared by who I think was the owner.

I have stayed in this hostel twice before and just booked my third stay with them for this summer. First of all, yes, it's a hostel... don't expect anything fancy. it's in a narrow building with lots and lots of stairs. The rooms are small and basic, equipped with bunk beds and a sink. As I said, hostel. But what... More

The best thing about this hostel is definately its location in walking distance to the metro and close to the flat iron building. We stayed in a 2 people private room which was as clean as expectable for the price, the breakfast was good (fresh fruits, cereals). On our second day when we came home in the evening our room...
