The vendor said they had received a fax from the hostel over a month before. This... More

Very nice room, linens, pillows. Belgian waffles, juice, cereal, coffe, tea, breakfast. Get there 5 minutes before opening to beat the rush for waffles and a table. 3-4 fast food restaurants like burger King around. Jamaican restaurants in the neighborhood. To this world traveled DC worker, the neighborhood was questionable. Wouldn't go far from the hotel at night but you... More

I stayed for two nights with four other friends; we booked a private room for five. The hostel website we booked through said that there was a pool, however there is not - we were almost laughed at by the guy at reception when we asked about it. We were happy with the location; it is only a five minute... More

Excellent and very helpful staff, Free airport pickup. Not recommended if you wanna visit New York but It's the ideal place if you like me you just need to... More

This hostel is appropriate for the budget traveller who is looking for affordable accomodations in NYC, with basic clean amenities, and for whom having a private bathroom and free parking is important, and you don't mind being a longer--though easy-- subway ride away. Otherwise, you can find similarly priced accomodations in Manhattan itself, but you will be sharing a bathroom... More
