To much noice. If you want to sleep at night, find Another Place. Earplugs wont help.


I was a bit disappointed! For 100$ per night for a two person bedroom I expected more. The room was very noisy even though the window was closed. There were stains on the linen and the very small bathroom was not clean! I also didn't like that there was only ONE sink on the FLOOR for all the rooms. Staff was very friendly and breakfast very tasty!


Really cosy place, with very friendly staff. Facilities are basic, but serves the purpose and are clean. Super nice atmosphere, almost like being in someones home. Surprisingly good breakfast for a hostel in NYC. Great location, only a block from the nearest subway station and not far from any part of southern Manhattan. Can definitely recommend it!


Was perfect, very quiet, the employees was very nice and friendly. The breakfast was the best in my hole life. The localization was very good.

Nice basic place with excellent breakfast. Great cheap alternative.


Wonderful hostel. Cozy, spotlessly clean and very nice and polite staff. Excellent location. Comfy bed and was great to have sink and mirror in the room. It was a pleasure staying here and would have stayed longer if i could have! Highly recommend!!,


Was extremely impressed with the cleanliness and size considering its location in Manhattan. Would absolutely visit here and recommend to any traveling through Manhattan looking for affordable and accessible accommodations. Can leave luggage onsite once checked out, although not locked, the staff held all valuable items at the front desk so things felt very secure.

Easy checking in. Room was clean, bathroom was clean. Breakfast was very good. Hostel has the right size, not too big. And the crowd was not super young either what made the hostel more quiet. That being said I only stayed there a Monday night, so I cannot tell whether it might be noisier over the weekend. The best part of the deal is the location: Close to gramercy Park and St. Marks Place. I really recommend it.


The staffs are really nice and helpful! We stayed at the two ppl suite and really enjoyed it! The room was clean and they've got all the things you need! Highly recommend!

Good place to stay. Less than 10 min walk to metro station 23rd street, line 6. Room is small but clean and comfortable, WIFI collection is good. Breakfast is simple but enough.


If you are looking for a cheap and fairly clean hostel this place is perfect. The rooms are really small, basicly just fit a small bed, sink and a chair. But it is pretty clean. The shared bathroom and showerroom was accually more clean then I expected! The only complain would be that they didn't clean my room, not even once, or changed the sheets, and I was living there for 9 days!
