16 March 2014 David would recommend this property

Liked: Price is top for NYC, 22.- are hard to beat here. The staff (as far as I got to see it) is a nice Swiss Family and was very friendly and helpful. There is good working WiFi in the whole building and common rooms are available downstairs.

Disliked: It seems like there is no properly working front desk. Check-in times are from 2pm until 10 pm which is ok. But I arrived in the morning and just wanted to drop uf my laguage already but there was no one around. A luggage room would be very nice. Also it says to "call" them when staff is not around. This is inconvenient for international travellers because this is really expensive.

Liked: The entry stairs are shorter compared to other hostels. There are plenty of bathrooms, and the kitchen works well for cooking and meeting other travelers. The computer works well and the wifi is good. The tv has movie channels and almost all the channels you could look for.

Disliked: Ron left no negative feedback.

Liked: 初めてのゲストハウスで、最初は驚きや戸惑いもありましたが、スタッフさんを始め、他の宿泊者のみなさんがとても優しくて助かりました。FreeWi-Fiがしっかり使え、キッチンも調味料まで充実していて、安さ重視の若者やバックパッカーには適しています。マンハッタンに出るには1時間程かかりますが、最寄駅は近いので交通に不便することはありませんでした。海が近く、近所にスーパーも揃っていて、すごくいい環境でした。

Liked: It was close to the beach.

Disliked: Where do I begin! The rooms we small and hot. THE BEDS HAD BED BUGS. I was bitten to death in the 2 out of 8 nights that I stayed there! It was disgusting! Also it wasn't just my bed I met a series of travellers the had bites from the beds. Also the area is quite dodgy it is in a back alley and looks seriously run down from the front. The wrong number is advertised on the website, which is sketchy. Also when I tried to get my money back try we're seriously reluctant. They claimed that they had had the bed bug issue before and they did not return other travellers money! I then threatens to call 311 (ny tourist help) and she gave me majority if my money back. I then left and haven't looked back since! DO NOT STAY HERE!!! IT WAS HORRIBLE!

Liked: The Hostel was located near the beach. At the hostel you really felt at home. The free wifi was great! And we had free access to the hostels phone. It was really close to the subway.

Disliked: It takes about 60 minutes to get to manhattan with the Q-train (so try to catch the b-train cause it's faster, takes about 30 minutes...but unfortunately the b-train doesn't go all times during the day.) There isn't much of a kitchen really..they have a fridge, freezer, microwave, the basic...pots and pans, and cutlery. But on the only stove there is just one cooking plate working...which cause problem.
