This was by far the best hostel we have stayed in, and we've stayed in many. I would highly recommend staying here. Granted it's a little far from the airport ($100) by taxi from Newark but it was amazing. The staff, the set up, the basement bar were all terrific. By night the surrounding area looked a little dodgy but... More

Great place to stay. It's a nice place. It's like 10 minutes walking to the train. The people from here are nice. The rooms are ok, beds are comfortable. In the morning you have breakfast. It's a nice place if you don't want to spend more money.

We spent 5 nights at that hostel and found it very neat. Even if you are a light sleeper like I am you can make good experiences. I mean, it's New York, so I'd bring a sleeping mask and plugs anyway. There's a bar downstairs and they may have nice events but it is also very noisy at night. We... More

Me and my friend stayed here during our vacation in NYC, it's a nice place and I would stay here again. Only thing is that it's a bit noisy and the wifi sucks. Else its clean and close to the subway which is great! Also our room was kind of big with a lot of windows which I liked :)

Due to losing credit cards in NYC (long story, but if you stay ask the night security guard about how i got robbed, he tells it funnier than I do), I ended up staying here for 21 days. The staff here were amazing and understanding, The beds were some of the most comfortable I have ever had the pleasure of... More

Our stay didn't get off to a good start. When we checked in there were no room keys available. The next day we enquired at the front desk for a room key and the girl was so incredibly rude. She made no apology for the inconvenience and instead demanded a $5 deposit (which we were not told about at check... More

Found this place online and immediately felt like I found a great deal. Prior to going to my room I was greeted by Perry who helped me with my check in. He was extremely friendly and happily answered all of my questions. The atmosphere of this place is like no other, it is amazing and interesting. The interior of the... More

Awesome garden and rooftop balcony, live music and big kitchen/TV area. Clean and well organised within a mile of some amazing bars and restaurants and right on the L train line. Not to mention the delicious food trucks that pull up just up the road every night. No complaints!

Well, everything's nice, I mean the bed and the room, but sometimes you'll hear "everything" that happened around you, like someone is walking outside or the other floor. And unfortunately, the day that I moved in didn't have any hot water in the bathroom, and the solution they gave me is...."go to the other floor" instead using the private one... More

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
