For the money and for one night it Average.


the bed was not comfortable, hardly i could get the internet wireless connection the building looked really old. it would have been a fair deal if i was paying 25$ a day for the room.

Public transport to the hostel is good although it is some distance from central New York. No. 4, 5 or 6 train should link up with an 'L' train to Broadway Junction. Outside the subway station, take a Q56 bus to the door of the hostel, around 10 stops away. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the gym and swimming pool are available to use at no extra cost. Good to patronise such a worthwhile organisation too.
