30 March 2011 Alexis would recommend this property

Liked: I loved staying here. The staff is very welcoming and accommodating, and make great conversation! The neighborhood is quiet, a fifteen minute walk to the L train, and the hostel itself is very safe. David gave us free coffee, tea, and snacks, and we were allowed to use the kitchen to store food. There is a great entertainment area in the common room with a giant T.V., a million channels, PS3, Wii, Netflix, and games. Probably the best part about my stay in NYC.

Disliked: I don't have any dislikes, only heads ups: the commute to Manhattan is about an hour from here, if that bothers you. The beds aren't super comfortable, but very clean and they come with a night light and an alarm clock!

Liked: Staff are extremely friendly and good hostel to relax good tv and common area

Disliked: Not sure if its really good value for money staying in the city is better. Also advertised as JFK ... To highlight proximity to airport but once u factor a 15 minute walk fro subway to hostel then it isnt really more convenient (or quicker) then places further in ie Manhattan

Liked: A very atypical hostel, in the sense that it is much, much more personal and comfortable, like a home. Staff is extremely friendly and is always trying to make sure that your stay is going good. To put it shortly, this was the best hostel I've stayed at and I will definitely be checking back here to stay when I am visiting NYC / Brooklyn again. Highly recommended.

Disliked: The only subway line (L Train) is about 10-15 minute walk away from the hostel.

Liked: the hostel staff is very nice and friendly. It's not a tipical hostel type. Because the hostel is like apartment, it's easy to meet other people and hang out with them. The day I arrived in the hostel, there were severe snowstorm so I couldn't go out. But there were a lot of DVD and games so I was able to enjoy in the hostel. Moreover, it's absolutely clean!!

Disliked: It's not located in Mahattan. It's in the blooklyn. It would be a little inconvinient. However, you would enjoy friendly blooklyn neighborhood.

Liked: This is the best hostel i've ever stayed at and i'm sure it's status will not be easily topped (at least any time soon!) David is such a considerate and accommodating hostel owner it feels more like a half-way house full of warmth than a hostel in an isolated part of lower east brooklyn.

Disliked: it might be considered by some to be too chilling (:
