The best hostel in the world. Seriously unreal.
Pillows are pants, beds sturdy, cramped conditions in the rooms. Staff good.
Absolutely incredible hostel - you get what you pay for. The rooftop view? Priceless. The guys that run this? Awesome. However, it became clear that the hostel isn't 100% legit - I don't know the law, but the landlord didnt know it wasn't a hostel until recently and nor did other residents (though only one resident complains about it). If you want proper NYC, come here.
