The train(24hrs open NYC Metro) was passing by every 3-10mins, the sounds can literally wake you up”
1. The room: thin wood board separated room without own ceilings, so you can hear what just happen from any other rooms nearby - even the guy scrating his leg, the guy walk by to the toilet. But the most important thing is, the sky- railway just 3 meter away from the building and the 24 hours open NYC metro train was passing by every 3-10 mins, and the sounds can literally wake you up. 2. Location: near the metro(Marcy Ave) and Williamsburg bridge(Brooklyn side), nice foods around in 1 km. 3. The toilet and shower room was clean.
This hostel is very dirty. I saw a rat in the kitchen. And too cold. ”
This hostel is very dirty. I saw a rat in the kitchen. And too cold. I had a bad cold. Also there aren’t any bathroom. There are three shower rooms each floors. But the shower rooms’ doors have crack so you can see inside if you want. So the hostel’s temporary residents are very dangerous to use shower rooms. Expensive but very cheap service and dangerous. Also dirty place which has rat cage. Too disgusting.

I went to the front of the hostel but did not checkin nor stay. I walked there from Marcy Av station in the middle of the day. The sidewalk was littered, storefronts were closed and people on the streets made unfriendly eye contacts (I already spent a couple of days in Manhattan and Dumbo area, there's a different between uninterested and unfriendly). I was travelling alone and didn't feel safe enough in the neighbourhood.
The counter is 24 hours. Good staff. It is good for travelers.I got there so late, so I still could check in.
When I booked this room, the information didn’t tell us it’s near the subway And my room is under the subway, so all night is really noisy .
First time but not last time.”
First time to get a dormitory-style accommodation and it was a great experience as place is small but cozy. Budget-friendly accommodation near a Metro station. Meet new acquaintances from other hemisphere. Hope staff would be more approachable, but in general I was a satisfied guest.
Great hostel. Really close to the subway/train into city. Great lounge area. ”
The lounge area and facilities was brilliant, great area to mingle, hang out, eat and work. Train into Manhattan is 2 minute walk away. Convenient supermarket and shops on same road. Hosts was very clean and modern.
ACCESSIBLE TO SUBWAY, GREAT MIX OF CULTURE, FRIENDLY STAFF”
Easy to find. Was my 1st time in NYC & as long as you know to take the J or M train to Marcy, you will find it easily. The neighborhood doesn't seem so great but it is very safe. I'd come home at 2-4am daily & it was safe. There is no curfew so have your nights out then go home to sleep. The staff were all extremely friendly, helpful & pleasant to deal with & our rooms were kept clean. The bathrooms, which I am most pedantic about because they are shared by a whole floor were also very clean, the exception being when people don't clean up after themselves but that has nothing to do with the hostel. They clean up good. The rooms can prove tiny for 2 people with big bags (I was in a single bunk bed room) but you & your roommate can work it out. The chill out zone looked really cool but I was always out so never got to fully utilize it. I may've chilled for 10 minutes trying to sort out my über and thanks to their free wifi, I got so much done & was able to be in touch with my family & friends. I really enjoyed my stay here
That was one of those experiences when you don't wanna leave . That was the situation with this Hotel and Hostel. I didn't aspect to much but got a lot. Very clean , great location next to subway ,and you making a one stop to Manhattan. The area name is Williamsburg , visit a Bedford avenue couple blocks from the hostel with a lot of beautiful restaurants and bars. This hotel have a great stuff and administration , very helpful with my needs and requests I had. Also they gave me an upgrade for my first stay . Beautiful lounge area with full kitchen , game and computer room, small library , dining area was great .
great value and usefull location”
theres just 2 negatives, one is that there is no ""roof" in each dorm so it can get quite noise (plus theres a train track almost on top of you) and the second one is that some rooms are really small, besides that is a great value and very good location.
Stayed here 1 night”
Right next to an elevated rapid transit line (popularly called subway, since it goes underground in Manhattan), so it was noisy -- 1.5 blocks E of Marcy Ave station on J line. Room was smaller than a jail cell. No elevator, 3 storeys. Nice lounge area next door. Altho checkout is 11am, luggage may be stored at the office till that evening, very useful for travelers with late afternoon or evening flights.
don't except to get any sleep. located right next to the subway so that's all you hear throughout the night. walls are paper thin and not even walls and the "walls" do not hit the ceiling and you can hear everything in all the rooms on the floor i.e the gentleman snoring up a snoring 3 rooms down.
Perfectly adequate, BUT....”
There aren’t any ceilings. There’s this huge kitchen, and playroom. You can watch TV, play on computers, whatever you want. They even have a little stand where you purchase drinks, but when you get up to the room, IT COULD BE QUITE BEAUTIFUL, and so perfectly sufficient, except that the walls don’t go all the way up, so there’s this big open gap, and I had to hear EVERYTHING, and I do mean EVERYTHING that went on in everyone else’s room. So that was quite an unfortunate experience, quite unfortunate, indeed.
Request for refund of money”
I had an emergency so had left the hostel in a day .Can I get my money refunded for the days I didn't stay there.Thanks .Can you please help me with this
I paid 2 nights but they refused me check in. over booking. Rwfund my money
Everything is good except a bit costly”
Good location, easy to go to the JFK airport, super clean, 2 bed in a room, no sound proof, no breakfast, friendly staff, no elevator
Even though I could not make it over the fourth for my rooms, I stayed home but I have been there before
i understand about hostel but this here very narrow. No elevator! It's very hard for the luggage to go up alone. and I booked a female room only but i got mixed room! so each other such as a bath room or other facilities it's ok.
Worth for the money, location and quietness not so much”
With the money spent, it is in general a good choice for your stay in NYC. Brooklyn is close to Manhattan, but have to check out for train lines if going back to hostel at night, it takes longer than expected to switch lines. Rooms and restrooms are clean, however walls are thin, it is difficult to sleep with people walking around or whispering in their rooms. Some rooms are very close to the train, making it very hard to sleep even with earplugs.
