Epic spot to stay, great facilities, you won't regret it.
45 minutes late for pick up from bus station. Classic case of paying for what you get. But fine for 1 night. Staff fairly stand offish and abrupt.
Only hostel on the island, but very cool spot, great volleyball and enjoyed the free yoga classes! Would return.
The location of the hostel is very convenient and it's a decent base from which to explore NYC with good access to subways and manhattan bus routes. Other than that, little to speak of. The staff was particularly disinterested and unhelpful, refusing to even allow a telephone call to be made to the hostel, in an emergency situation.
