Great hostel and New York experience. Close to 2 subway lines so easy to get to downtown. At night just have to be a little street smart.


A bit far away from Manhatten but not too bad, the area around the hostel was a bit rough. Bar downstairs was cool and the subway was just round the corner.

Thank you for your honest and helpful review. We hope to see you back soon!


I have been traveling around the world for over two years now and this is one of the nicest hostels i have stayed at. Yes its expensive but defiantly get your moneys worth. I stayed in Manhattan for a few days then decided to stay out in Brooklyn for a change of scenery. Totally worth it.

Thanks so much for your kind review. We hope to see you back in NYC soon :)


The only problem me and my group had would be the cleanliness of the bathrooms as well as the room temperature. It was absolutely freezing even with blankets.v
