Liked: I met a great group of people here, other travellers who were very welcoming and outgoing. Noel is also a great character, helpful and has a lot of funny stories to tell. One nice feature is the rooftop, which is perfect for enjoying a few drinks whilst looking at the NYC skyline.

Disliked: The neighbourhood leaves something to be desired, I didn't feel too safe walking back at night. At the hostel itself, there was also an incident where somebody had money stolen from their room. I'm sure it can happen anywhere, but overall this host was a nice place to stay.

Liked: The hostel is in a really interesting part of Brooklyn and is worth seeing if you don't mind that it will take you at least 50 minutes to get to the main sights in Manhattan by Subway. It had a really relaxed atmosphere, with the guests being a mixture of travellers and people who have just moved to New York, which means you're likely to meet a whole range of interesting people. Would easily stay here again.

Disliked: The bar downstairs is pretty expensive.

Liked: No positive comment.

Disliked: Very far from Manhattan. Personnel not very earnest, who threatened to kick us out of the house when we asked for the Wifi code to check the price of the night. House hard to find without the slightest indication that the house is a hostel. We thought we had a wrong address since it looks like a common house. We cannot pay with a credit card. I absolutely advise you NOT TO GO THERE.

Liked: It's a really nice little Hostel in an old house10 mins away from Booklyn downtown. The personal is nice and welcoming, the hostel has everything you need. For New York relations it's quite quiet.

Disliked: I can understand the critics about cleanness, though I don't estimate it as unacceptable. One must consider that the hostel is located aside the hotspots, although they are definitly in reach. For the price it's definitly worth to consider.
