I wasn't familiar with Brooklyn before, but it was a lot of fun hanging out here. The staff was really nice and helpful and told me cool places to visit and eat. It was cleaner than the other hostel that I stayed at in Manhattan, and much cheaper too. Thanks guys!

I think the owner fully takes advantage that hotels in NYC are expensive to fill its slums. I do not even want to imagine if there was a fire and we must...

I really enjoyed my stay at NYC Hostel. The location is in a very safe and clean neighborhood. The host is very friendly and the location is only 2 blocks from the subway and lower Manhattan is only 20 mins away. I highly recommend this location.
