So when I booked the hostel online it said Williamsburg, Brooklyn and we all know that's where the cool kids are. The pictures online looked amzing, huge rooms, tidy and filled with sunlight and the best part, the hostel just opened so everything was brand new. That sounded almost to good to be true. I asked for a late check-in and the guys told me to call once my flight landed so they wouldn't wait forever if I didn't make it. But I did and called them around 1am. I didn't know what I expected but it topped everything ! Even though I wanted to take a cab from Penn Station they talked me into taking the subway (in a very cute way), explained how to get to the hostel (super easy to find !) and in the end it saved me a lot of money. When I got there the first thing I noticed was that the hostel manager and his brother were probably younger than I am. Even though it was the middle of the night they behaved like we were old mates and put me in the biggest nicest room they had - awesome ! It was clean, warm, huge (queensize beds !) and sunny. Room had lockers and a desk to work on & a cozy oriental carpet. Staff was always helpful with whatever I needed. The only downgrades were the missing kitchen (that was almost ready to be used but was waiting for a permit by the state of NY) and maybe the location. It is still Williamsburg for sure and if you go down the street to catch the sub it's all nice and you get to see some hipsters but if you wanna take a stroll into the other direction you're in the middle of a puerto rican neighborhood, with 'kill-mo(o)re street' (that's what some local told me the other night) up the road. I felt a bit uncomfortable walking there after sunset...but maybe that's all in my head ! So I'm definitly recommending this place and will return for sure !
