They know how to TAKE the reservation, but they don't know how to HOLD the reservation. I stayed here two nights ago. Online, I booked a 3 bed room with a private bathroom, paid a bit of a premium for this. When I got there, they said you get whatever room is available upon arrival. NOT happy about this. Why...

DO NOT STAY HERE ! my experience at this hostel was horrible and it really tainted my whole trip. Staff are unfriendly and unhelpful, The room was tiny! VERY noisy as it is right next to the subway and the walls don't connect to the ceilings (like toilet cubicles), the toilets have see through doors, and there are no social... More

I stayed for a week, the building is typical of Brooklyn thats why walls in rooms do not reach the ceiling, is also a subject of heating. The bathrooms are always clean and the rooms are small but comfy, clean and include towels. The Marcy Av station is very close making easy to move to Manhattan. Negatives: the social area... More

It's okay, it's not amazing but then it's not bad. Wifi - good/excellent Rooms - okay, bedding and towel provided Bathroom - okay, hot water Location - bad/good (right next to overground rail, so noisy, but then two minutes from the station, and it's about a a short ride into Manhattan. Also makes it easy to find. Staff - very... More

My friend and I stayed in a 2 person room (had initially booked a 6 person but they upgraded us which was nice). However the room was very small and the walls didn't reach the ceiling! So there was no privacy and you could hear everything from neighbouring rooms. The worst thing was the bathrooms which had frosted glass cubicles... More

This student residence is located in a very dirty neighborhood with piles of garbage on every corner, the train noise is going through the heads of passers and grinds in the ears of the guests. There is not a neat place to eat or a decent tenant, they all seem to hate life. It becomes a disgusting experience walking and... More

They will cancel your reservation and not tell you until you show up, then blame Expedia or anyone except them. Big gap between the walls and ceiling and a train going past feet away; NOISY. No AC. One bathroom per floor. Avoid at all costs.

We got in extremely late in the evening (12pm) and that was no problem. Still got a lovely service. Unfortunately no elevator so take a light bag. I learnt the hard way. We got a private room which was great. Very kind of them. The bathrooms were okay. Clean and very modern but the screen was translucent and you could... More

Very close to the metro station (Marcy St.) and also to some supermarkets that are open 24/7. Free wifi and clean rooms. I liked the neighbourhood and the staff was friendly. It can be pretty noisey, but most people know that and try to be as quiet as they can at night. It's not a 5 star hotel but it's... More

The Location: I think is good since it is just one block from the nearest metro station (Marcy St.). Also, it only takes 20 min. going to Time Square / Central Park by metro. The surroundings of the hostel is little messy. The Lounge: the best part of the hostel. It is very modern, with a big kitchen, and two... More
