    SmartHouse is aptly named. You'll have trouble finding anything around NYC with this value. Great and friendly staff. Tremendous security. Modern facilities. All in all, a great place to stay. I would definitely do it again.

    Although I did not stay at Smart House in Newark, New Jersey, due to the fact that I later learned that the House was located in NJ and not in DE. Website, please correct the listing on your site so that others are not misinformed. My communication with the host, F**a, however, was very positive. He was very kind and understanding of my need and reason to cancel my reservation.

    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.

    Do NOT stay here if you are looking for a real hostel. This is NOT a hostel...just an AirBNB the owner slapped the word hostel on in order to be able to list on here. Most of the people there are actually LIVING there, which creates an uncomfortable situation for actual travelers that are not expecting that type of environment. The owner was very hard to get in touch with and it took me an HOUR to get the door code. The house also randomly and loudly beeps at you for reasons I still don't know.

    This place was hella sketchy. It was a house so I don't know what "staff" their talking about? The dude who is in charge wasn't even there so we had to communicate via phone 5 times before I received the code and room number. You pay upfront instead of after your stay? Probably cause its a sketchy part of town and it looks like people LIVE there. The security for the doors was the only thing that made me feel safe-ish. And the bathroom was shockingly remodeled. Fights happened all night too!!

    Just a bad experience. From an abject staff to the fact that this is not a vacation hostel, but rather a place for homeless. No lockers. Ridiculous rules. Can’t lay down on couch. Only positive is a bar-grill down the street.

    Pretty sure this is a scam. I paid for the room. The owner and then random guy that didn’t seem to be staff kept asking me to put my info into a few third party websites. I was never able to see the inside and was still charged. Be careful of this place! The website should do some investigation.
