Gemütliches Hostel in guter Lage

Ich war für 4 Nächte in The Local und war super zufrieden. Das vier Bett Zimmer ist zwar relativ klein wenn jeder Gepäck dabei hat aber durch die großen Staukisten unter den Betten wird das ganz gut ausgeglichen. Die Dusche ist klein aber ausreichend und vor allem sauber. Die Hosteleigene Dachterrasse hat einen super Ausblick auf die Skyline von Manhattan. Das Personal war immer sehr freundlich und hat mir mit allen Fragen gut weitergeholfen. Bis zum Time Square braucht man mit der U-Bahn ca 20 min. Die nächste Haltestelle ist Max. 5 Gehminuten vom Hostel entfernt. Die Verbindung zum JFK-Flughafen ist auch Top (45-60Min - mir dem Airtrain Richtung Jamaica Station und dann die E U-Bahn Linie bis Court Square/23rd Street. Ich würde das Hostel definitiv wieder buchen!!!
