Liked: The location is great. Just across the subway. Only 10 minutes from downtown Manhattan. Plus it's inside a campus so there's no question about security. You have to pass 2 guards to get to the dorm. And the rooms are big and clean.

Disliked: Hope left no negative feedback.

05 September 2014

Liked: It is a short subway ride or walk across Brooklyn Bridge to get to Manhattan Island

Disliked: The security guards, workers within the Long Island University and people in the surrounding areas were very rude to travelers. There was little to no atmosphere, and all the bars are a decent distance away. Bathroom facilities were very dirty + doors did not lock. You get what you pay for, it is cheap but dodgy

Liked: Cheap, close to subway

Disliked: As I said, it is really really dirty. The bathrooms are disgustiing. If you only stay for one night, try to avoid the showers. There is fungi every where, the shower curtains haven't been cleaned for centuries, some of the toilets are blocked and flow over. The rooms are okay, but one can see that they are beeing cleaned once a week because there is the rubbish and dirt of the predecessors. Common areas are not nice at all so if you are travelling alone and want to meet people avoid this place!

Liked: This is a hostel of long island university. IT is very safe and secure. A guard at the entrance 24/7. Also the student volunteers who run this place are very friendly and supportive. They try to make your experience a good one.

Disliked: I room I stayed in was the dirtiest room I ever stayed in. In fact, I couldn't even imagine a place which can be more filthy. There was garbage on the floor. There empty soda bottles, shopping bags, used tissue papers, on the floor. I had to look down to find a place to put my steps while walking. There were 4 desks in the room, all covered with dirty cloths and empty bottles of toiletries. The washrooms were not washed for ages. Its like they had never cleaned those rooms. They think it is your responsibility to clean that garbage when you move in. If I would have seen that room before paying, I wouldn't have paid a single penny for it.

Liked: Nice staff, not far from Manhattan.

Disliked: You what you paid for. I'm not usually picky with where I stay, but this place was very gross. The place is run down, the rooms had trash in them, mattress was a box of springs. There are safes but you can not put your stuff in them. The bathrooms were gross, I found a cockroach in the shower. No kitchen and you could only get water from a dirty water fountain.

Liked: Location, and the price was good for the services

Disliked: The bathing area is very dirty, and the cleaning was very minimal. Hygiene should be key and I felt this not the top most priority for the establishment. They need to improve in room cleaning. It should be everyday that the rooms should be cleaned, not every three or four days.
