Everything written about this hostel is absolutely true: it's probably the worst hostel existing in the "Western world" as we know it.
So instead of doing the usual bashing let me point out what makes this place "stayable":
1- because it's such a disgusting place, it almost forces you to be out more and visit the city.
2- the staff is okay. I can sense that they are ashamed and pissed because they know this hostel is such a rotten place.
3- the location is the bomb. The best area of Manhattan if you ask me.
So if you are going there, here is some advice: bring your sheets or blankets and have ZERO EXPECTATIONS.
- Free Wifi
