I loved my stay, this hostel is so clean and close to the subway station. So many activities are going on and the staff is very friendly. I was alone traveling and I would love to stay here again in the future. They also have an amazing rooftop!!
Amazing rooftop terrace. Nice bar!
NO ELEVATORS. You have to carry your heavy luggage through stairs.
Very clean and good atmosphere(stylish lounge). I can use private bathroom but I’m not sure all rooms have it.
Coin laundry is expensive
The staff are really nice and welcoming. Rooms are clean. Close to manhattan. Not a very noisy area.
Funky vibe. Inexpensive. Friendly staff.
No shampoo/soap in washroom. But may be thats the way a hostel is supposed to be...as it was my first experience in a hostel.
