    Value accommodations. Located in Brooklyn not far from Subway and Citibike access. I stayed in a two person room. I was surprised how small it was but it was big enough, clean, comfortable, and private. Other guests were quiet and though I was a little worried about there only being two bathrooms on the floor, it was never a problem. I suppose, like myself, most guests are generally out enjoying the city.

    The absolute best cheap place to stay in NYC. The only problem is that if you are a light sleeper, there WILL be train noise. Apart from that though, excellent no-frills place to stay. Restrooms were clean, rooms were too.

    ISH is in a great location, near a train stop. The staff were kind and helpful. The beds in the rooms were comfy. Definitely a good place for the money!

    Great spot right off the M line! Very clean place and modern style facilities. I paid the extra for a private room, but the room walls don't go all the way up to the high ceilings so you could still hear everything on the floor. Regardless, most of the guests at the hostel were very courteous and quiet. One thing to note about the bathrooms: I stayed on the 3rd floor which had a Mens bathroom with only one toilet, one urinal, and two showers. There wasn't a lot of traffic but it seemed minimal.

    It's cheap, the staff is friendly and that's about it. You get what you pay for: * The rooms are very tinny (the bed takes more than half of the room) * There are not many toilets (one per floor of 40 rooms) * All rooms on the floor are connected together * No windows in the room * Obviously no AC * Train is 1m from the building and it's quite noisy * The common area is big, but with not too many places to sit If you don't mind the noise and just need a cheap place to sleep, then it's an OK ch

    Biggest issue was the tiny security box, which wouldn’t even fit my laptop and means you have to leave everything unattended even the hostel tells you not to. The rooms are open on the ceiling so you can hear whatever’s going on on the rest of the floor too. The lack of an elevator is not a plus either. Location is really good and the common areas are nice too, everything else was nice.

    Positive-Would stay again for a NYC rest head spot. Location- Marcy ave subway great for JFK/south manhattan. Rooms- very reasonable. Clean. Liked partitions. Airy ceiling. Full mirror. Would like a warmer duvet. Security- Would prefer bigger locker. Bring padlock- like all hostels. Noise- Generally fine for sleep and get up/go. ‘White noise’ of airvent limits other cubicle/subway noise. Great wed/thurs. Fri-people less respectful noise- but fine. Bathroom Remove fixtures, bottles.

    Disgusting. Don’t be fooled. Your room is a partition that does not connect to the ceiling. They sell locks because people can climb into your space and steal things. This used to be a flophouse with chicken wire used as a ceiling from room to room and bums living inside. The pics prove the new owners have worked hard to fool those of us who remember this horrible place. They fooled me and I had to stay 7 hours. Was able to sleep but... Now they clean it up but it still is hell in earth.
