    I had a great time staying here. The rooms are kept really clean and the staff is friendly and it is an easy commute to New York by train.

    The hostel is not too far away from the Newark Int. Airport, and located in a neighbourhood with various food places around. I enjoyed the stay, however, there were a few things I didn't like as much, including (1) kitchen was not equipped well; only plastic cups/forks/spoons, (2) beds were very wiggly, (3) using the washing machine costs money, and there is no space to hang up the clothes.

    Very Good

    All I needed was a bed to sleep in, and this place fulfilled that. The common areas and bathrooms were much nicer than the bed itself though. And, I was expected to put my own bedding on which doesn't seem like much, but i was exhausted from 18 hours of traveling, and the last thing I felt like doing was fighting with a fitted sheet on a rickety top bunk. I gave up and just coccooned myself in the sheet lol. The host was very nice, and you can't beat the price. Overall, it got the job done.

    Abundant mold in bathroom ceiling. Floors are not cleaned. Everything else is fine. Nothing to do with the staff and system in place, but people do not honor quiet hours.

    Always good to have hostel options near NYC, and it's a pleasant walk from Penn Station/ 35 mins by walk/ public transport from the airport. The place is a bit of a dive for locals more than a travel hostel. This does mean that it can attract characters and is more of a cohabitation space.Need code pre-arrival - I was locked out. Make sure you get this code before setting off for the hostel esp. if arriving late at night. Beds not fit for purpose - no ladder/ rickety.
