    Bring 50 dollar cash so you don’t have to wait 30 days for it to come on credit. The kitchen and tv gaming area is awesome; very clean and quiet. Showers are superb like 4-5 star hotel level. You only share a room with one person which is awesome the only problem I have is the hostels are all connected at the top. So you can hear any and everything from people next door or down the whole it makes it feel like you can’t say anything in your room and it’s a bit uncomfortable.

    Very Good

    The "rooms" ate tiny - beside the bed there's hardly space to turn around. The rooms are more cubicles than rooms, not having full height walls. This means that noise from other cubicles carries far. Overall, the place is very noisy - not just because of the train track right outside the corridor windows (the rooms have none), but also from the air ventilation system. Front desk offers ear plugs, but I don't know if they charge anything for them. I bring my own wherever I go.

    The single room is not really a single room as the top of the wall are not attached to the ceiling, thus you hear other visitors coming, clapping the doors, talking, snoring, ... The subway is right next to the building, so you hear it all the time even the night. Rooms are so small you cannot open your luggage. Do not recommend it.

    The showers and toilets were divided with glass paneling and there was nowhere to put you clothes or towel when showering. The bathrooms didnt have ventilation so there was mould on the tiles. The rooms had a gap at the top so you could hear everything which was happening in the rooms near you. My room looked out onto the subway, it didnt bother me with the noise, but the others in my room said it hard to sleep. The hostel was in a good location and cheap, so you get what you paid for.

    Convenient location right next to subway but you basically get what you pay for. Walls are paper thin and you'll hear people passing by in the hallways. Due to its proximation to the subway, you're also gonna hear it every time it passes by so be prepared to wear earplugs to sleep. Rooms are pretty small as were the lockers. Overall good deal if you're just looking for a place to crash for the night.

    No Drinking water (it should be free with water dispenser). The dorm was really very small with some smell due to moisture. The person at the receptionist lies about small things and try to sell things that should be available free of cost like drinking water).

    It’s unfortunate that we have to whisper in the room just to talk to the same person I am staying with . The place has no ceiling and everyone can hear you. If you are looking for a cheap and affordable stay and do not care about dropping a needle everyone can hear, this is perfect for you. The location was great which is one position thing I can say.

    1. Bedding. For Oct in New York City, there is only sheets in bed. I can not believe i was not provided a blanket. I got sick the first night staying there. 2. The location is awful. The neighborhood is dirty and messy. Even though the front desk said it is safe to walk around in the night, but it does not look safe to me. 3. The booking on the website does not include tax. So I paid 30 dollars more for my three nights. It did not happen for my stay in Boston.

    I have stayed in a lot of hostels and this was by far the worst I have ever stayed in. This isn't a hostel, it's a prison bedsit. Staff are rude and unfriendly, the building feels like it may fall to the ground and the rooms are like small cubicles with no walls to the ceiling. I didn't feel safe here and left the property early. Would not recommend for solo travelers or anyone for that matter. AWFUL!
