Liked: metroの駅 103st から歩いて僅か3分ほどのところにあり、とても便利な立地です。ホテルの一階には早朝から深夜まで利用できるカフェが併設されており、夜中に急に飲み物がほしくなった時にも出歩く必要がなく助かりました。30歳をすぎてユースに泊まるのはどうだろうか、と思っていたが、宿泊者は老若男女、多国籍でバランスがとれていた。

Disliked: チェックインしたところ、ベッドメイクがされておらずシーツも前の滞在者のままだった。しかし、フロントに言うとすぐに交換してくれた。

Liked: Very close to the subway line #1, literally like just 2 mins away, easy to get to from Newark International airport.

Disliked: Room has a stale smell, but doesn't matter much because I'm just there to lay my head for a night.

Liked: The atmosphere, great activities and tours

Disliked: Room is too crowded, no sense of privacy at all. During my stay there was a big party (something outside of the hostel with families and loud kids) that made a lot of noise and didn't end until midnight (although hostel's policy is quiet hours from 11pm)
