I arrived at the hostel at about midnight after a long flight delay. The guy at reception was lovely, and gave clear directions as to how to get to my room. Unfortunately when I opened the door, all the beds were full. I went back downstairs and was given a new room. Not a huge deal, I mean, if I... More

I stayed here during the peak of New York Summer in August 2014. The hostel is located in Flatbush, Brooklyn - easily accessible from Manhattan and within walking distance of a whole host of different bars/clubs. In fact, this is a big appeal - the Subway is a few minutes away and for anyone looking to do some exploring in... More

We stayed here for 8 nights in a twin room. The location and the overall atmosphere is perfect for a hostel but the room was very run down. The bathroom was dirty, the heating wasn't working and the room urgently needs some paint. It WAS a great hostel a few years ago.

Very affordable and cosy place, has a nice rustic look that's synonymous with a New York lifestyle. Beds are not that comfortable but for the price you pay it's what you get. The reception staff are friendly. Free breakfast is provided with your stay.

The hostel was really nice,with good decor and facilities, however the wifi was slow, and the hot water came in short bursts. The staff weren't too friendly and the hostel didnt have a great atmosphere, the bar was closed all 5 nights we stayed. We visited in January however,and the hostel had potential to be great in the summer.

I was in the city to work some shows at New York fashion week and needed a cheap place to stay. I got a private room with a shared bathroom. The room was fine. Just a bunk bed and a safe. I wish the room had more light, it only had a super dim overhead light and two desk lamps... More

Value for money is a bit hard to find in New York. The rooms a bit dirty and worn out. Bath and toilet in the hall. Location was okay - you are able to walk to the subway in 5 minutes. There is a nice café just 25 metres away.
