    It's a hostel, not a hotel. If you set your expectations appropriately, you'll appreciate the bargain you get. The location is excellent - 1 block to Metro, a bakery kitty-korner from the hostel. Some of our group had good beds, others had saggy ones where they really felt the bar across the middle. The rooms were nice and warm in winter. Our only problem was that they had no spare lightbulbs in the building, and both rooms had lights that didn't work. I guess you have to bring your own bulbs.

    Very Good

    I had to laugh, because I have had more experiences sharing rooms with untrusting, unfriendly, unpleasant, and just downright weird people... in the US... than I have anywhere else in the world. (And my one night at this hostel was no different.) But this wasn't the fault of the hostel. Just... my luck, I suppose. This place was fine for one night. The price was right for NYC, location was great, near the subway. Cleanliness seemed OK. May not be the place for the "hostel experience."

    They cancel our reservation without previous notification. They said that they had a fire and where not able to provide any help. About the deposit made through the website the person there said first that they’ll arrange everything for the refund, but when asked a second time the same guy told us that the website doesn’t charge anything. Over all a horrible treatment to the customer and a total lack of empathy, respect and professionalism. Never again.
