say thanks to george from eddie and debbie,an excellent stay!


It's nice as you have a lot of free space for yourself, but you are pretty much left alone with other travellers - if there are any. It's less a hostel than a normal living house with two bedrooms. You dont get bothered by anyone, but there is no reception or anything either, if you need something you need to call the house manager. The neighborhood is not that nice - seemed a bit unsafe.

i loved the experience of having basically a whole apartment to yourself. the owner was very friendly and helpful, once he came to meet us. he even drove us to the nearest laundromat and made sure we knew exactly how to get home. the location seems a bit dodgy, but we never had any trouble while we were there.


Great location, next to multiple food sources, mcdonalds, kfc, dunkin donuts, chinese restaurants. Close to both Sutphin bulvard and Jamaica Van Stations, within 5 mins walk. Secure. Pierre and JR are available during the day and extremely helpful, always looking to please. Free shuttle to the airport was great too. Room had air conditioning, wifi was fast, a bunk bed with sheets and towels provided. Shared bathroom and kitchen but both are fully stocked. All in all for the price great value.
