It was a nice hostel. It's autentic and clean. There are activities every day. They have their own kitchen, theater and store. I like it.

Just great!

Very clean, great location, safe, comfortable beds. The atmosphere was terrible, despite the facilities there was a total lack of friendliness from staff and others staying. This seemed more like a place people stayed when visiting NYC for work and not to explore the city and meet people. Totally different from my experiences in hostels across the world. But if you're travelling with friends then this is less of a problem. I'd definitely recommend this place for location and ease.

I was very impressed with the cleanliness of this hostel. Very easily accessible to train station and I felt safe walking to the stop, only 2mins away. Not much to do at night around there so need to the catch train elsewhere. Atmosphere was average, but has good organised activities for night time and day time. Overall stay really good but would suggest you choose somewhere closer to Times Square/penn station for first timers to NYC to save you catching the train to where the action is.

Great hostel at great value! It's pretty far from most attractions though.

I've been travelling for about 6 months, in Europe and Canada, this was by far the cleanest and nicest hostel I have stayed in. The food downstairs was fantastic and the room was extremely clean!

The value for money is really good. We can get in the train to anywhere anyways. I recommend the place. Clean rooms and showers, hot water, not too much people. I was feeling safe there.

I really enjoyed the time here, a lot of activities and it was really easy to know another travellers. The location its not really the best but you have a subway station at one block, so, cool. I loved NYC and definitely i'll back to this hostel.
