I v spend a small week in that Hostel with my brother and my 2 cousines ... basicely we where Up at 8am and came back everiday at 1 am ;-) The location of the Hostel is really cool .. if you stay for a week, just get a subway pass (27$) and basicely you can go aniwhere in the city from the Hostel. The cool part of the location is that you have a subway stop just next the Hostel ! ANd the subway IS really safe! never had any trubles with anibody.
The hostel it self is not the Big luxe BUT really clean. ( not like the other comment you can read online) Each room have they own bathroom / restroom. When you arrived you have to give a 10$ for key deposit that you get back at the end of the trip. The hostel crew is really friendly. you have Internet in the lobby .. I had my laptop with me and even got a neigthbur wierless connection in my room ...
If any of my friend would hask me a place to stay i would definitely recomend that place. cause i rather pay 20$ a nigth and spend the rest of my budjet on shopping than the other way arround ;-)
The onely part that i dident like. is that you cant take your suitcase with you in the room. But it wasent really a big deal. Just not really use to it ;-) The suitcase have to stay in the lobby who is lockt at nigth and during the day there is always somone from the hostel in the lobby with them. No one of our familly had aniproblem with the suicase. A suitcase with a lock is always a PLUS ! P.S: i left my laptop everiday in my suicase!
The athmosphere i found in the hostel was really simillar of the athmosphere i had in hostel arround the world: Thailand, florida, south africa, ...
