This is a friendly hostel that likes people to feel very involved with the city. Lots of outings. A continental breakfast is included with a very friendly man going around helping people meet and feel comfortable together. Worldly. All ages. A little sterile. Good for school groups, more conservative types. Sure there are artist and more interesting tourist but was not there enough to meet any. Met a girl scout group traveling through... A little expensive. $48 for top bunk bed, 4 women sharing. Bathrooms were very clean and large. Feels like a clean you are living in a clean high school. Big building, cafeteria style lunch room. There are cheaper places to stay but if I was in charge of a group I would pick here. If I was a bohemian backpacker... I might stay elsewhere. If you are tourist or intern this is a place where you will likely make friends fast. Close to subway. Nice easy to find entrance. Elevator. If this place was about $10 cheaper I would consider it a decent price. $50 just seemed excessive for the narrow room with bunk beds lining the wall. Clean and the bed was comfortable enough.
