For the price this hotel was a great place to stay in an excellent location - not far from the east village, union square, 5th ave shops...great to have a safe in each room. Bathrooms were sometimes difficult to access as there were only two on each level. Rooms cleaned each day and wifi everywhere in the hotel, they organised airport shuttles as well. Overall a good place to rest weary heads after the chaos of new york!
This was one of the best hostels I've stayed in. We were in a private room which was pretty much like staying in a hotel - fresh towels every day and all. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, the kitchen is huge and awesome, the free breakfast is excellent if you can wake up in time. The downstairs bar was an awesome place to hide from the cold weather. Such a good location and felt like we were staying in a hotel but for hostel prices :)
Francis was really helpful, also george who saved me a lot of time by giving me a cheap lift to the airport! Only downside really is that its difficult to get anywhere with public transport from hermosa beach.

No cold running water in the bathrooms was a bit of a downfall, no toilet paper in the bathrooms (toilet paper is provided in the room and you have to take it with you), paper thin walls. I guess we got what we paid for with this place.
This hostel is in a really great spot- across the road from Brunswick and Smith streets, a quick walk or a tram ride to the city. It's next to the main road so the traffic is a bit noisy but we were used to that in Sydney so it was no biggie. The staff were really helpful at all hours, very well run place.
Good kitchen and well stocked with essential (although the oven wasn't working which is a bit inconvenient)- the staff were amazing, and the view was great . Thanks for the fun times. OH also the 2 for 1 drinks at buffalo bar were freaking great! thanks!
The owner and the guys who worked here were great- friendly and hospitable, the place is really clean, it\'s just the basics but it\'s done well . The hostel shisha provided a good environment for some relaxing to be done! thanks
It\'s very strange staying in a cell...this place was a little too far out of town for our liking.
