Nobody is truly addressing the location... It is at least forty minutes from Manhattan by subway- and there is NO WAY you should walk from the subway to the hostel by night. During the middle of the day, there were countless racial slurs directed toward me during that short fifteen min walk. A forty-five year old black guy told us we needed to move due to the neighborhood. Yes, the hostel is nice- great service, clean, friendly.. and if you don't mind the commute back and a twenty dollar cab go for it.
I would only suggest staying here under those conditions. If you have guys with you, or a large group, that would be better.
