“Great Environement!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2013

This was the first time I ever stayed in a Hostel and it wasn’t all that bad. The rooms were clean and so was the restroom. The staff was great and accommodating. Though located a ways from all the sites in Manhattan you still are able to access them easily with a subway right across a couple of streets. I would definitely stay here again.

The room was very clean. The decor was also modern and updated. We had a room with a private bathroom, and it was clean and good-sized. The shower was rather spacious. The only downside is that the above ground subway was very audible from the room, so it is definitely important to bring earplugs and even then it was hard to sleep through rush hour in the morning.

The common room in the basement is great. The kitchen has been updated and there's more than enough dishware/fridge space/cooking utensils available for everyone. There is also a great large, dining room table with a TV, ping pong tables and a lounge area. The fact that this room is in the basement means that the noise in the common room is not audible in the bedrooms.

There is a grocery store about 10 minutes away by bus, and a small convenience store across the street for any emergencies. The subway is right next to the hostel and it is a direct line to downtown Manhattan. The location is therefore great - and the costs are much cheaper than in Manhattan!

Room Tip: Try and see if you can choose a room that is more on the interior or farther away from the above gro...

The room was clean and the staff friendly but be warned, the hotel is right next to a railway line which can be noisy - when I asked to change rooms I was told the hotel was booked out but they were helpful in offering earplugs.

Upon viewing the evacuation plan which has the size of the rooms displayed on the back of the door, we had the smallest room on level 3 - no elevators. I was disappointed as I had booked 5 months in advance. The location is lousy with a 30 minute walk to the nearest grocery shop. There is NOTHING in the immediate area.

Staff come and go into your room at any time to empty your bin or check for leaks so I didn't feel our stuff was safe, we had a private room with our own bath/toilet (very tiny). I would not recommend really if staying in NYC.

A nice alternative and affordable to hotel, clean, spacious, close to the train, close to manhattan, a superb lounge area and affordable rates!! It does not look like a hostel but an actual hotel! In the lounge area they even had nice hookah like intimate lounge. :) If you want a nice place to stay then go to the Q4 Hotel. It was great.

That's a very nice hostel! Breakfast is not avaliable, but there are some places to eat nearby.
Safe place, clean (linens were not changed in four days though), fair price, few meters from Queensboro subway station, free wifi connection. Check the lounge at the 2nd floor, it's very nice.
I recommend this hostel, for sure!

Overall a great (and quite cheap) place to stay.
Public transportation gets you easily and in just 10 mins in Manhattan.
Rooms are extra clean, with A/C, wooden floor. beds are confortable.
It's not a party hostel, it's very quiet at night.
The only problem could be the neighborhood, kind of scary at night.
