14 July 2011 Renevey would recommend this property

Liked: I would highly recommend this hostel. Kris is very friendly , the place is clean and quiet. Shower, toilets, fridge, kitchen, are all easily available and free to use. You can also use the washing machine for 3$. The travel from the hostel to the subway station lasts about 10/15 min on foot, or coast 6$ with a cab, and from the station to Manhattan about 20 min, and you can either go to WTC or to the 33rd st. So that's not located so far at all. Finally, the price is really fair compared to many other places in NY itself. Sleeping here is really a bargain!

Disliked: Honestly, the "less good thing" about it would be that you have to buy an extra card for the metro between Manhattan and Jersey City, but it doesn't really matter, because depending on where you would sleep in NY itself, you would finally pay more. I really think that this place is one of the best you can find to visit NY. Thanks for all Kris!

City break
Sightseeing & culture

01 May 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: We've never stayed in a hostel before, but all in all we were pleased with the accommodation and for the value over the Easter holiday. The room was quite big and had a large chest of drawers, a wardrobe (or old school locker!) and a large desk. There are two shower rooms and a kitchen. We were lucky that it just seemed to be us and one other person.

Disliked: Again, like I said we've never stayed in a hostel before, so these comments might be usual in other places. Hopefully these will give an accurate view of the hostel: 1. It's about a 20-30 minute walk from Journal Square station or a $6 cab ride 2. There is no other common room other than the kitchen 3. It's about 20 minutes to WTC or about 30 minutes to 33rd Street. It's cheap on the PATH but does make it a pain if you want to go out in Manhattan after a day sightseeing 4. There is no nightlife nearby at all! 5. If all the rooms were full when we were there, I think the few toilets/bathrooms would be an issue 6. The bed was a fold out one and was quite uncomfortable Again, with that mentioned, it was really nice and the owners were helpful in directions before we arrived.

Liked: Bit of a hike to NYC but very do-able. Budget-wise, it's a terrific alternative to staying in Manhattan. Plenty of food and eating in the area, and we felt safe. It's also handy having a kitchen, and the host is helpful and accommodating.

Liked: The fifteen minute walk to the PATH train did not bother us, and the train takes you to WTC in 7 minutes (or 33th street)Very helpfull owner and the rooms are ,beside from being a little Spartan, dead quit in the night. The year before we slept in Manhattan Broome street and where kept awake all night by sirens etc.We also enjoyed looking at NYC from an other perspective.
