Tiny hostel, well situated within easy walking distance of Union Square subway. Bearing in mind that you won't be spending two much time here, it's perfectly fine for a short stay (I stayed for ten days). The six bed room (three bunk beds, just opposite reception) was small, but just large enough, bathroom adequate, bedding was clean. Staff welcoming and helpful. This is the sort of place you have to take a chance on; I had a lovely time with great considerate roommates and helpful and engaging staff, but I suppose you could be unlucky. I would definitely stay there again. Basically, it's a small no-frills hostel and you have to take everything that comes with such a price and location - but take some ear plugs, and maybe a spare towel.
Excellent knitting shop next door with cafe with excellent coffee and cakes, although it may be relocating in Jul09.
Take the SuperShuttle from JFK, you can 'book' ahead or on arrival at the airport, but make sure you book your return trip, so the minibus can pick you up from outside the hostel. Time and stress saver.
