Liked: Everyone is like a big family here with a common living room and kitchen. There's even a common cat. On hot days you can sit and relax in the backyard

Disliked: The rooms are to small for so many beds. The showers were filthy. Breakfast is not really breakfast. You just get cereals (without milk), coffee and do-it-yourself pancakes.

Liked: Friendly staff.

Disliked: The hostel is close to public transport, but on the G-Line. Which is very unreliable, we waited an hour & a half for a train on a Friday evening! The rooms are tiny, one of the beds had a bent leg. There was not enough room for the amount of beds. We also had a group tun up at 2 am and as you have to make the bed yourselves we were woken up. ( if the hostel knows people are checking I late, they should per make the beds!!!!)

Liked: It felt like a home, which is much needed during a long backpacking trip. It was a homey place, and I was pleasantly surprised, since I was expecting NYC to be all urban. It was nice to be in a place with a yard and a cat.

Liked: The environment was comfortable and the staff were nice. It's a small hostel so if you were expecting tours and events, you should stay at the larger hostels. Also, it's for people who are into exploring the culture of real NYC living. Not just going out to the bars and getting drunk everyday.

Liked: I stayed in this guesthouse in January and March and both times was nice. The first time it was january so it wasn't that full, but March was very lively and I met some great people. If you travel by yourself it's great to have a homey communal vibe at the guesthouse.

Disliked: nothing
