City break

26 May 2015

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.

Liked: Good place to stay. A little inconvenient/farther walk to the main lines, but so is most of Brooklyn. Sweet view from the roof, clean beds and bathrooms. Was easy to find and for the price, a great stay.

Disliked: Only 2 bathrooms in the hostel, but usually people are using them at random times so it isn't too bad.

04 June 2014

Liked: The staff and the location.

Disliked: We stayed in the room above the kitchen downstairs. It seems that the exhaust from that kitchen was blowing out into our room. Although there was a fan to try and move the air around, it couldn't move the smell of deep fryer oil in the air. I guess that's fine, unless you would like to sleep, get dressed or just be in the room. To add to this, there are no lockers and the WiFi was really slow. Oh, and the shower had no blind/curtain in its window, so we were on show to the neighbourhood.

Liked: Is the best place that you can find for this price. (friendly staff, good location, big rooms ...)

Disliked: The hostel should be pay to hostelbookers for its advertisement on website, i mean if you pay here in hostelbookers some price for reserve and the website say, you just have to pay the difference once you arrive to the hostel so the hostel souldn't ask for more money appart of the difference when you arrive, so it is like you are paying for the advertisement of the hostel to Hostelbookers and when you arrive you have to pay all the money again and not just the difference.
