Probably one of the best hostels in New York. Although situated in Queens, there is a subway 50m that has a good connection to Manhattan. 24/7 reception is a plus, (female) staff was friendly (but not the friendliness you get in European hostels). Rooms are small but you don't really want to stay in your hostel room in New York don't you? Bunk beds were quite wobbly, each movement from the guy above me felt like an earthquake. Bathroom in each room was very spacious and clean.
The female staff was friendly and gave suggestions for sightseeing in Boston. Although the location is horrible (the street could be the scene of a horror movie at night), there is a shuttle every 30 minutes to the subway station. The hostel advertises for having a bar but it isn't really. Although there were many people in the common room, everyone just sat there looking at their computer screen which made it a fairly dull place. Dorms were small (but sufficient), not enough bathrooms.
Not the place for backpackers, difficult to meet other travelers (because of the diversity of people: many hipsters and many middle-aged people). Location was a bit shabby, luckily 2-3 blocks from the subway. Disregarding the high price, the hostel was nicely decorated in a cool building, the rooms were very spacious and the bathroom was very clean. I had expected a better breakfast.
Weirdest 'hostel' I have ever stayed at. Although there are many flaws, it's a pretty cool place to stay at if you're somewhat open minded. The host is nice, he takes his time to show you around and give suggestions on events in town.
I can understand why this hostel has received so many awards. Fantastic place to stay at: the staff is kind and multilingual. The bar is a very good place to meet other travelers and the bartender joined the conversations, which was really nice. I have stayed in both 6 bed dorms and 3 bed dorms (with my own balcony!!), and I felt very comfortable in both rooms. The only downside was that the 3 bed dorms didn't have its own bathroom. The shared bathroom didn't allow much privacy.
I wouldn't call this place a hostel, it's more like sharing an appartment with your sister - that does all your work - which is really nice. I immediately felt at home in this astonishing place. Can't get any better, apart from cooling the rooms during hot summer months. Besides that, myMOjOvie will probably be better than your own place.
A unique place to stay, just 20 meters from the Soca river. You shouldn't go there for the accomodation (cleanliness is something to work on). The personnel is very kind. Lots of activities too, although it's pretty expensive (consider others). Wheels are recommended, because this place is situated somewhere in the middle of nowhere.
The receptionist, Andrea, was really nice and helpful. She makes guest feel welcome. Some nice people staying there too. Definitely one of the best places to spend at when going to Bled.
