Stayed here for one night. The location is perfect. Right off 8th Ave, you can walk up 3 blocks to 23rd and catch the A, C or E subways and go Uptown or Downtown. Only 3 stops from Port Authority Terminal which is right by Times Square.
Check in is at 3, so when we arrived at noon - we were told to go downstairs, drop off our bags and come back. The lockers were 4 dollars for 24 hrs and a fair size. We stored our bags until check-in...which was seamless.
The hostel itself is a little dungeony... with the rooms being small, ours had two twin beds, a sink and two lockers. For the most part it was clean, and safe... the door to our building was locked to the street, only guests could enter the unit we stayed in. Each room locked.
The shower on our floor was clean, as was the room/closet with the toilet.
The courtyard in the back is nice, with picnic tables and wifi.
For 50 some dollars a person in New York City... I think this was a great deal, especially for just one night, The location couldn't have been better, the gentleman who checked us in was super friendly, as were the other guests.
It's a hostel - don't expect the Ritz.
Would definitely return.
