Liked: This hostel is awesome and have a great location very near to two subway stations, very close to central park, very safe to arrive late night. Staff is awesome they try to help whenever they can. The backyard is great a good place to do new friends and hang out. They have a bunch of great activities, super recommended. Clean bathrooms with hot water 7/24.

Disliked: Mattresses were awful, too soft and they don't give any back support. Air conditioner did a terrible noise. From some point of view it is good because you don´t know too much about others.

Liked: Nice place to chill and rest with good feelin'But, still a little bit pricy. 3 nights for almost $180 is still painful as a young college visitor like me coming from a middle of nowhere called, Bloomington. Damn freaking corn field.

Disliked: Wished washing items like shampoo and body wash be better products and expect a little bit more variety of them for visitors that might lose a chance to pack washing tools completedly like me.

Disliked: The price could've been a little less, but that might just be me being stingy.

Liked: The Staff at the Hostel were 1st class, very helpful and approachable, the bakery was also very nice! with a great selection of food, drinks etc.Facilities on offer were great too, this property is very big so felt like plenty of room to relax as well.

Disliked: Although the size of the property was an advantage at times it also worked as a disadvantage too in regards of meeting people in comparison at smaller hostels where it is easier to socialise and bump into people, also the lack of a bar at the hostel is a definite problem, we need our alcohol! :) the location whilst not a million miles away is a little far out from the action in New York in my opinion, although the subway is not that far away to travel to these places.
