While a little pricey for a bunk bed ($35pp/nt), this hostel is very clean, well maintained, very friendly staff and has great security. The beds were very comfortable, although the pillows are fairly sub-par and the towels are quite thin. There is a bathroom with a seperate shower room and a seperate toilet room attached to each dorm room which was quite spacious and clean. There was also more bathrooms on each level, laundry and a room with tables & vending machines. You recieve a key card at check in which is required to get into your room and to use the elevator, and gives you access to the building past 9pm when the doors are locked. There were quite a few resturaunts within a few blocks, the subway was only 3 blocks away and the waterfront was also about 3 blocks. The hostel has multiple activities set up every day, although I didn't go on any, and there's lots of brochures and info in the lobby. Lots of families and youth groups as well as young adults were there during my two night stay.
