Liked: The athmosphere is very warm. I felt more like staying in a familial flat share place than a hostel.

Disliked: The rooms I stayed so far - it is my second stay at that hostel - were not very good insulated but the heaters helps alot and they have plenty of blankets. The location is not perfect. The G line is not as frequent as other NYC subway lines. It takes me about an hour to get to Manhattan. But what do you expect from a hostel for that price? I just wanna say i would rethink booking that hostel if I visit NyC over the weekend.

Liked: Great and friendly staff, nice kitchen and clean bathrooms and bedroom. Just one block from the subway station and its located in a not so touristic area, which gives you more authentic experience.

Disliked: It was a little bit hard to go to the second floor with my luggage since the stairs were narrow but not a big deal.

Liked: I was in New York for a couple of days to see Long Island University. The guesthouse was close to the subway. The place is clean and the staff is nice. I had to take care of some business so I did not experience the neighborhood but it was fine from what I saw. Lots of stores and cafes.
