3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Property conditions & facilities
Very Broken Down
Most of the lockers were broken and you could not truly secure your belongings while you were out. The beds were not comfortable and the very limited electric receptacles were inconveniently located and ususlly being used; several of the secure charging lockers were out of order. The location is great, just across the river from the Guggenheim and reasonably walkable to other sights.

3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
Disliked: Room comfort
This is a youth hostel and as such the youth does not clean after themselves. I guess their moms are coming by later to clean up after them. On the plus side nice staff lots of coffee and great view/location. The people here are very nice and very helpful and there is always bread to snack on.
