Not so nice: smell of urine in the corridor, some homeless living in the entrance area
Very nice staff who told us everything to visit and to do in NYC. Our matrasses were very thin and old so we felt every spring. Common bathroom is very small and a little dirty. Subway station is nearby.
Staff doesn't speak English. At our arrival our room was just occupied so they moved us to another hostel 5 minutes away. We had to leave our car there and when we wanted to continue our journey it was blocked between other cars and we had to wait more than 1 hour. Additionally internet only worked near the router, in our room in the cellar it didn't.
Matresses were old. Elevator did't work. But okay for a few days.
Nice, small, situated in the centre and near to the sea
