SABRINA GERPE OLIVERI thinks…

"The room was exactly as described; the staff was very helpful, polite and always friendly; the location was perfect, just a block away from the metro station, and with various restaurants and pubs…"

Liked: Unfortunately the location was the only thing. The bathrooms were decent if u could get 1.

Disliked: The hostel in general. The staff @ times seemed as though they had no idea and even the simplest question was answered with a blank stare. Our room had no lockup security and they let a tradesman come and work in our room not notifying us and wen we did return our door was left wide open this happened twice

Liked: It's downtown, close to the subway, and it's really easy to visit the city from that place.

Disliked: first of all, when we arrived, we had to pay for 100% of the price of the bed while we had already paid 10% on the internet ... then it has been a hard time to make them understand and to have your money back (not in cash while we had paid cash) the second disgusting stuff was the bathroom ... the floor of the bath was almost black and we couldn't imagine taking a shower, besides, there was little bugs on the wall ...

Liked: Have to say, the location is AWESOME. Free wifi and towels are nice.

Disliked: Staff definitely could be more FRIENDLY. Found it too expensive in comparision for other upper west side hostels value for money. Sometimes other guests yelling for half an hour in the middle of the night, and nobody cares from staff. (Yeah I know it's a HOSTEL, but it's basically for sleeping in the night, most guest doing that). In a nutshell, It didn't worth 60 dollar + huge tax per day. It doesn't really good choice for one guest, because of dorm prices.

Liked: elevator, kitchen plus separate lounge area, very thorough cleaning staff

Disliked: only a couple of bathrooms on each floor (though they were great bathrooms) there was often a wait if you wanted a morning or evening shower - best to shower at abstract times.
