“This was my second time staying in a hostel (first was as a chaperone for a school trip to Washington, DC) and it was a very pleasant experience. I had seen the wonderful reviews of this location and can honestly say they were very accurate as far as my experience went: VERY enthusiastic, friendly, and helpful staff, VERY clean bathrooms and rooms. I was there 3 nights and only to sleep so I did not partake in any other activities there or elsewhere and can't speak to that. Definitely recommend! ”
“ Hostel is very nice. Walk distance fo Union Square. Staff is very friendly and the most important: bathrooms are clean! Internet available in the rooms (and very fast) also power and light close to the beds. ”
