    It was an excellent "hostel experience". I met many smart and interesting people and I had good discussions. In the overly digitized post covid world it was an excellent "human experience" that reminded me that I am not only a "digital being but also I am a "human being". For the last three years I was almost like in "winter sleep" because of COVID - This experience activated my body and soul. Thanks to Talib and staff.

    This was such a hidden gem! For a last minute find the place was close to the subway, clean, felt safe and had great facilities and kind staff for a fantastic price. Would 100% stay again if I came back to the city.

    Host is really welcoming and makes sure you're all set. A little bad thing I'd say it's that there's only one bathroom and shower for everyone who is staying. Besides that my stay was great :)

    This is a hostel for real backpackers. If you are looking for something nice, shiny, and franchised go elsewhere. This place is really unusual and could be cleaned up, but overall i loved it. The vibe is great, feels more like a home, and its super easy to make friends.

    The place is old but very clean, but also asthetic and artsy. The staff is the best and it's overall a great place to meet people if you travel alone. If I go back to nyc I will definitely stay there!

    It doesn’t look like much from the outside but once you’re in it’s actually a really special spot full of very cool people! The staff at this hostel are so amazing!

    It was a lovely place to stay for a short stay. I don’t recommend any long stays here. I think the only two downsides to this hostel were the bathroom had no fan or air con, so trying to dry yourself in there was a big task as you end up sweating in there. And there is only one toilet, which created some queues when the toilet was needed by everyone. The staff were friendly and helpful though!

    The hostel is in a great location. Close to several subway stops and a bus stop. Close to grocery stores. The staff were welcoming. Cleanliness leaves a lot to be desired. There is only one toilet and one shower for all the rooms in the hostel. It has a relaxed vibe and I met some fun people there though.

    This is is not up to standards especially for international travelers. I ended up not staying there I booked im elsewhere. The pics of the place is misleading. Its run down, its not hygienic, it's not suitable to live in. The continental breakfast advertised also misleading as it was only a pastry offered with coffee which the machine had lots of stains. The place is cramped, and really not very clean.
