I was realy impressed this was a real hostel . not some woman tossing beds in a room in her house and cramming people in for money illegally. its a real hotel with a professional staff . its in an old bank building that was renovated pretty cool that the safe room is a chill spot in basement . some people traveling to nyc dont get it that hostels here are not like in Europe except a few like this one and loft hotel in Brooklyn that are realy done with thinking . not some guy looking to make quick money by doing the cheapest thing . then they close down. Ok , the place is well done like a gym , u get towel bed and sheet locker is on bottom of bed which is cool. not that small or big. they at least have a real luggage room not that ur bags are left in hallway like a hostel i stayed at..
I read people complain about shower which is one complaint i had.. because i had to use my wash cloth to wipe up water .. so they need bath mat. the shower was realy great . itallian tile glass tile and large sunflower shower head.
the kitchen" yea," i can say it did lack dishes and cups. they had a blender and maybe i can give them my old juicer.. Its near the q r train, just like block across street. the guy at desk gave me wrong directions and i was walking into queens far down. i didnot hear noise in my room and it would not have bothered me. i stayed in a hostel in queens where the astoria blvd was to much noise .. with no class rooms and basic..this is far better deal , and an experience in architectural design. somewhat.
its in long island city near psi art museum walking distance.. alot of privacy in basement common area and room to move around. dont know why someone complain about that.
tv flat screen .. the rooms were not that big or small. six bed i stayed in . i dont know about the mattress it seemed for some reason what they call it tempropedic where it molded to my body or just old and had a dent in it . I didnot mind the staff because my experience in others hostels with unprofessional staff who are there laughing at people abusing them is realy bad . they find some one who needs a job with no personality and put them in hostel. i was ok with staff despite wrong directions. This place is easier to get to than the West Way hotel and a breath of fresh air from someone just putting beds in a room with the intent to make alot of money off tourist.
great envioremnt high ceilings clean new , a hotel hostel environment ,cooking facility. needs mor dish and plate cups. a juicer.. and also to designate better the recycle thing in basement and make a compost. if that is what the silver pail was for make it a sign that says compostables which they should to green up the place.. it was hard to know what was glass and plastic.
they have bathrooms at least in common area and u can chll out after u check out. good tv.
furnishings and other.. NO FREEzer !!! that was also a strange thing cause people had ice cream . there was no freezer just fridge.. labels provided.. they charge for baggage check afer u check out. bring ur own lock. not pay 6 dollars for a lock..or buy one at 99 cent store dont buy a lock..people who give low ratings to better hostels are people who have not stayed in many nyc or usa hostels. This is a good deal.. when price is lower.. its great.. travel for bussienss fun.. and search for place to live in nyc..
