    Pretty dope vibe! First night there met friends and some cool girls. Greenpoint is a very cool area and its bustling. It can be lowkey sketchy at night so watch out and close to signal hill ( so double watch yourself). However as a solo female traveler I felt pretty safe even walking up vesperdene at night. Just keep your wits about you. Amazing location! Hostel is really cool. :)

    Big Blue was a wonderful place to stay! Great location by the waterfront and not too far a walk from downtown. Really friendly staff and wonderful atmosphere. The security is great and the kitchen and bathroom facilities are really nice. I was able to meet some other girls from my dorm who were traveling alone and was able to find people to explore the city with. This is a great hostel if you're looking to meet people while traveling.

    The breakfast is great for the money, it has everything necessary and it is good! The staff is absolutely great and helped me with everything I needed. Rooms were great and clean enough with lockers. It is perfect located, 10 minutes walk from waterfront, there are coffee shops, laundry, restaurants near by. I would recommend it.

    Nice place in a very good location. About 15min walking to the waterfront. The cleanliness of the dorms and bathrooms should be better, however the hostel in general is quite clean. Nice staff and friendly people in the hostel.

    Good location and helpful staff. The dorms are very spacious so you can keep your privacy. They offer a lot of activities which is great. Free breakfast and tea and coffee all day. Waterfront and city center in walking distance. Kitchen big enough for many people cooking at once. Would stay again.
