Bad things : - I booked a room with a large bed (as I saw in the picture and the info shown in agoda website), but agoda sent the information to the hostel as I booked a room with a dormitory bed. - The hostel is very old, not clean and uncomfortable. - The window has no glass and cannot be locked. - I am not sure what noise is very loud all night like someone hits the steel or steel sadder. That noise made me wake up all night.

                  Location is great. Be prepared to deal with awesome staff. No locks on the toilet or shower and was mentioned to maintenance but there response was they didnt want to pay the hefty price to change the lock. Turned the heater on every night and the piping is old so makes loud constant banging noises. Room was rediculously hot and heater still on at 10am next day. Went and asked to turn it off or lower it and was laughed at by the staff. Got no sleep each night it was on due to the banging of pipes. Waited 2 hrs at reception at 2am to check in.

                  (+) - Great location. It is near the metro station, bus stop, convenience store (CVS), and bank. - The room is clean and the air conditioner is cool. - The beds are ok. We had a good night sleep. - There is drinking water in the kitchen. We can cook our food there or make tea. - The area is ok. It’s pretty quiet at night so my little one can sleep well. (-) The receptionist was very late. We arrived at 3pm for check-in and the receptionist was not there. We were very tired and wanted to rest but have to waiting until around 6pm. Luckily the room was ready and clean when we checked-in.

                  Worth Tracking To”

                  I enjoyed my trip. The cons about the trip The windows do not lock, there are miniature roaches in the room, the beds are very lumpy but comfortable but uncomfortable. They don't have bed bug covers on the pillowcases or bed. My room did not get cleaned while I was there, there were people feeding animals off of plates, and the place needed some work. The pros Amazing location, right next to the park right next to the water, friendly atmosphere, safe environment, walking distance from a walk-in clinic CVS Dunkin donuts consignment shop whole foods supermarket bookstore restaurants Subway. A lot to do at night and not that close to downtown Manhattan but three stops away on the subway. Would I recommend this place 2 people yes despite the roaches and people using the plates to feed animals. Otherwise I will travel to be there again. It's a must-see for the price good prices.

                  The rooms were unhygienic and the washroom was way to small. The cleanliness was a big time concern. I had to wait for a long time to check-in even after the official check-in time as there was nobody at the reception. There were no curtains in the room, so, the room was like a public place. It's a matter of shame that such hotels/hostels are still listed. I wish I could get a refund for this pathetic experience.

                  Worst Hotel ever”

                  Awful and nasty place......They offered me one private room online. When I got there, they gave me a room with 3 more people in bunk beds. What kind of scam this people is doing online? I lost $75 because I didn't stay and I went to another hotel Beware of this online scam.

                  部屋のタイプ「Single」という単語に注意が必要!”

                  今回予約したのは「Single with share Bathroom」でした。Single=シングル=一人部屋かと思っていたら、大間違い!相部屋です。スタッフに「シングルで予約をしたので、一人部屋のはずでは?」と問い合わせたところ「そういう意味ではなく、ベッドの大きさがシングルってことだよ」と言われました。また、到着時にタオルの貸出をお願いすると「今は全部出払っているから、タオルがない」とのこと。「あすの朝また取りに来て」と言われたので、朝行くと「まだタオルはない」とあっさり言われました。結局昼ごろまでタオルを待ってようやくシャワーを浴びることが出来ました。宿泊人数分のタオルがないって、どういうこと?!

                  遇到不好的經驗 ,有敲打鐵管的聲音,有其它房音樂聲放最大聲吵鬧,半夜吵鬧無法入睡,室內總是有一股怪味。大概就是比街友好點有個遮風避雨的地方,員工的態度很隨便,甚至還懷疑我沒付住宿的費用,非常的不推薦!

                  직원들은 비교적 친절하였으나 가을에 방문하기에는 춥습니다.”

                  위치는 나쁘지 않았고 가까운 곳에 마트와 식당등이 있어서 편리합니다다만 창문을 알루미늄판으로 가려놓았는데 그 사이로 바람이 슝슝들어어와서 방이 추웠습니다. 옷장안에 옷걸이가 준비되어 있지 않아 요청하였지만 체크아웃하는 날까지 준비되지 않았으며 시설이 많이 낡았고 비가오는 날엔 식당쇼파에서 개냄새가 났습니다. 부엌이 불결해서 그 어떤 요리도 해 먹고 싶지 않습니다. 수건은 5달러를 내면 빌려주며 반납하면 다시 5달러를 돌려줍니다. 특히 저는 싱글룸을 예약했는데 그런방은 없다며 5박을 벙크배드가 있는 2층침대를 사용해야 했습니다. 추천하고싶지 않은 숙소입니다
