    International Student Residence Hostel was a great place and a good value. The linens and towels were clean. The bathrooms were clean and modern. The hostel is located within walking distance to the Williamsburg bridge, so you can walk to Manhattan. I would stay again.

    The facilities was great but they did not control who they let in. For 4 of the nights we had about 20 french students who were aged 14 coming in at 1 o’clock and slamming doors jumping off beds and shouting down the corridor. As non of the rooms had no ceilings you could hear everything. When we told the staff they did nothing. The no ceiling was an issue. It wouldn’t cost a lot to put in and would make people a lot happier.

    I had a private room, but the WALL DID NOT MEET THE CEILING. There was a 3 foot/1 metre gap between the wall and the ceiling so there was very little privacy. You could hear every little noise from the corridor and the rooms around you. Also the rooms are right beside the train tracks, so there is constant noise. Other than that, it was lovely. P.s. and the showers were always cold.

    I'm not a high maintenance person by a long shot, but this is the worse hostel I ever stayed in! If you book here, it's because you are desperate, need a place to crash, or just ignorant and I'm the desperate one because all the other hotels and hostels were booked or too expensive. The accommodations are noisy AF! I can deal with tiny but it's NOISY AF! The walls don' connect to the ceiling! The clue when you first check in is the huge bowl of ear plugs. Steep long flights of stairs. NOISY!

    I would not recommend this hostel. However the fact that it's cheap, I immediately regretted not having booked an airbnb for the same price. The guy at the reception charged me 40 dollars taxes, but when I was stunned and asked about it, he was very inpolite. I booked a private room to have some privacy, but the walls didn't reach the ceiling, so there was a lot of noice and lights every night.
