12 April 2015

Liked: Cheapest we could find in Manhattan at the time.

Disliked: A combination of factors. Lacks alot of atmosphere, cold at night, lacks some friendliness, very small place, they didn't offer much breakfast options such as offering one type of jam (cheap one too). They didn't utilise their space efficiently and made the place very small and boring.

Liked: Super friendly and helpful staff (males), cheap and worth the money for a weekend stay. Loved the vibe with all the international travelers at the lobby.

Disliked: Would be nice to have a housekeeper to clean the bathrooms at night since they are shared and they get dirty very quickly. The room heater wasn't enough for the chilly nights. No hot water in the room sink.

Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Everything. It was realky dirty, noisy, the beds were terrible (really thin pillow and mattress) with hair all over them and everyone were high on pot and the place stunk of pot. It was also the most expensive hostel we have every stayed in and the hot water ran out.

Liked: Short walk to the subways.

Disliked: Seen as though this is on a busy 11th and 23rd street, you'd think the windows would be a bit of a thicker glazing as the traffic is rather constant. Wifi needs some serious attention too for speed and also being available in the rooms... Mattresses need some serious changing as they give no real support when lying on them..

Liked: Location (e.g. 25 min walking distance from Times Square), really friendly staff (helped with non-working keys and gave us another room b/c of wind coming in through broken window frame)

Disliked: The broken window frame, the hallway was quite cold in the mornings.

Liked: Good location in South west o Manhattan, 5mins from Metro, 25-30min walk to 9/11 memorial/Wall St/southern ferry port. Good breakfast of bagels and coffee although only jelly and butter - smoked salmon/creme freche would be a strong improvement.

Disliked: Basic facilities, cold showers during afternoon, very squeaky bunk beds but otherwise spacious rooms

Liked: Very safe and secure. I had a room for 2 people and loved that only our hotel key could let us in! Very clean and aircon perfect in room. There was never a line for the shower/bathroom. Wifi only in lobby but very quick!

Disliked: Small incident with cute little mouse.

Liked: Great location in Chelsea next to Hudson, the Bike Path, and 23 Bus (if a ways from the subway), and, too my surprise, unusually large 2-person rooms for Manhattan with lots of locker space. The complimentary breakfast was a nice plus too. Great value overall.

Disliked: Jackhammers at 7:30 every morning working on the hotel 20 feet away insured I wouldn't be sleeping in. Bathrooms are sparse, so a wait is usually in store every a.m. And the sheets on my bed hadn't been changed when arrived.

Liked: I loved the breakfast (you should be there really on time - at 8 and then you get such a wide choice of food!!) - it was the best one we had during our 4 weeks long say in the USA everything was ok :)

Disliked: you have to pay 4 dollars / person, if you wanna leave your luggage in hostel after 2 pm :(

16 August 2014 Alexandre would recommend this property

Liked: You can hardly find cheaper in Manhattan. It is basic, but at least it's no nesting place for bedbugs. Room had a sink and was pretty big for the location. Neighborhood is somewhat quiet and provided you don't care walking for 5 minutes you can find good cafe in the morning (check Joe on 23rd) on your way to the metro. From there a small hop on the C train can quickly get you to Times Square Station or 14th street where you can change for pretty much anything.

Disliked: There are hardly enough showers/restrooms. Not a floor mat, so as soon as a traveller doesn't know how to dry his/herself IN the shower the place is a mess. You can't open the windows in the rooms but single pane doesn't make for good sound insulation over 11th ave (though it's probably the most quiet avenue in Manhattan). The A/C is so loud that if you switch it on during your sleep, you actually don't really care about street noise. Mattresses are of pretty poor quality, had a backache every morning. Wi-fi is only in the pretty small and drab lobby and even there the band is rather narrow than "broad". Price announced doesn't include tax, I like when I get to the hostel that what I have to pay is exactly what was announced.
