    Simple hostel that does what you want it to do, for a price that's cheap for New York. Nice common room, nice and interesting location in Brooklyn. Try the Trinidadian food nearby, very yummy! Only one toilet but this is no problem as the hostel is small. One suggestion. Get better bed sheets. Two of the beds in ladies' dorm are wider than the other two and the sheets are hopelessly too small for those. Mine wouldn't stay in place at all and I ended up using my scarf as extra sheet.

    The hostel is well priced and the common area is cool, but if you’re used to the high quality/low price of European hostels you will be disappointed, the property needs some serious renovation. Well located to subway and LIRR and a few supermarkets in the area.

    It's cheap n chearful and that's cool but i think even for a no a frills hostel, the shower room could be finished off. The grime around the the of the bath is disgusting. This could eadily be scraped off and resealed andthe bathroom floor improved. The stairs could be hoovered and cleaned. The bed could be made up instead of having to do it yourself in the dark. This place could be a true gem with a little extraput intothe cleanliness. Great staff and shower and coffee not bad either.

    Never again. Cheap for NYC, but you would be better off spending more. It was grotty, dingy and rundown, and has random junk everywhere. There is only one shower and toilet for the whole hostel, both of which looked like they hadn't been cleaned in ages.

    The hostel was passable, there is one toilet, and one shower. The atmosphere wasn't the greatest, the location is also not ideal. The prices are very good for NYC, but I don't think I would book this hostel again if I visit the New York area in the future.

    It always smell like weed. People smoke everywhere. There’s not quietness never. Always lights on and sounds. It’s very dirty. The bathroom is disgusting and they just have 1 bathroom for all the people. The breakfast is almost nothing. Just store buy pastries. The staff is so nice but the atmosphere is really dirty and disgusting.
