Liked: Has nice lobby and lots of lounge space where one can work quietly.
Disliked: I left an Airbnb because it didn?t have an elevator and the elevator here was out of service ... so kind of defeated the purposive. It is hard to carry luggage up the stairs. I know it was temporary but they should have offered help

Overall good, I would definitely...
Liked: Good value for the money. Room was comfortable, bathrooms were very clean, which is a big plus for me.
Disliked: Not a big deal but one of the staff member wasn?t very friend.

Liked: It?s a beautiful building. The sheets were clean and the bed was ok. They have big lockers which is very convenient. The room is spacious and they have chargers and lamps on each bed. The showers are nice, with a little separation between the door and the actual shower that was very useful. Even though it was a common bathroom the showers did?t feel as a locker room, as is the case with hostels sometimes. They also had a hair dryer.
Disliked: The rooms smelled, the whole hostel had a smell similar to that of an enclosed gym. It?s probably the rugs in the bedrooms that catch the humidity over time. The location is okay, it?s too far north though and it takes a lot of commuting getting to the different places. But it?s close to a subway stop so that?s a plus. It?s difficult to compare price since everything in New York is so pricey but at 65 dollars a night for a 10 bed shared bedroom I was expecting a bit more.

Great location, make sure everything...
Liked: It was a great location, recommended by the company I am working for this summer, easy access to things to do while I was waiting on my transportation to my job
Disliked: I was on the 4th floor and the elevator was broken so I had to carry 4 months worth of luggage up 4 flights of stairs. For the price paid, the elevator should have been working

Delightful, great place and location,...
Liked: I liked that the on-site cafe was open late. It was very pleasant after a stressful day of travel not having to go back out in the rain to find food.
Disliked: There was not enough space to store my luggage/ get to my locker. The other 5 girls in my room knew one another and felt very comfortable with each other and they had to go out of their way to clear space for me to access my locker or bag. I guess that happened in a room with more beds, but it was awkward that I people had to move for me to get to anything.

Liked: The front desk assitants were really helpful and kidness, I had a problem with my credit card upon my arrival and they were all positive disposed to help me, especially a girl - who unfortunately I dont remember her name, but she spoke excellent spanish too!
The hostel is quite far for the main atractions in Manhattan & Brooklyn but the subway station is 1 block away and you get everywere in less than 10 minutes - Altought you should check the hours in which is working because sometimes they are doing reparations and the subway do not stop in all stations. The rooms are ok if you are travelling just for a couples of days, I was in a shared room for 4 people and we all had big luggages so there was not much space left, but as I said, it is confortable if you are planning to stay in it just to sleep. The kitchen & the garden, were a plus! And the towels too!
Disliked: The breakfast was ok, but I would recommend include more healthy options as yogourth, cereals, orange juice, etc.

Disliked: Very hot rooms with little air circulation if the air conditioner was not on. Turning the air conditioner on was a point of contention in the room because it was loud and only cooled off one area of the small room. Beyond that this hostel offers much less of a social experience than I have come to expect after stays in a number of others.

Liked: The showers are amazing!! The staff is really nice and I loved how easy it is to get there and to the city!
Disliked: Overall I liked my stay and I'm aware of the fact that it's a hoStel but the rooms are really starting to look like they maybe need a little renovation to still hold up to price-performance... The lockers were old, rusty and a bit nasty to be honest - could use a wipe. The matress was saggy and I personally wouldn't want to walk on the carpets with bare feet. Still not at all a bad experience!!
