I stayed here for a week in October 2012, the week before hurricane Sandy. At first the hostel seemed to be in a bad location, bit of a dodgy area, but once you get your bearings you realise its just a bit industrial and even coming back late at night I never felt unsafe as a single female traveller. It's a 2 minute walk to the subway station and there are bars/cafes close by, one is open 24 hours.
The hostel is very clean, spacious, and the staff are friendly. The room i stayed in (6 bed female dorm) was HUGE. All beds were doubles and again very clean. Even though you were sharing, you felt like you had your own space. There street in front of the hostel was pretty noisy, bad enough to close the windows. But i took ear plugs and slept pretty well most nights.
Free tea/coffee in the common room which also had about 5 or 6 computers with pretty fast internet, DVDs, nice big TV and a fridge,kettle,microwave and toaster. There are also a couple of vending machines for snacks/drinks.
I would definately stay here again, especially with friends as it is a really cool lively area and so worth the money,
