A cheap place to stay if you need no comfort

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on August 4, 2005

The wanderers in is really not a comfortable hostel, but if you screw down your requirements to get a cheap place to stay this place is OK for you.

It was funny to read the article Cheap Sleeps by aah_stone as we had exactly the same room and the same problem, the radiator didn't turn of. It's quite a bit ago we've been there and it seems they didn't manage to fix it in nearly 2 years.

The breakfast is OK, sometimes there are cockroaches between the bagels, but after toasting them (the bagels ;)) it is alright hehe.

The rooms there, at least ours, was really cramped. So if you have more than a bag with you it might be hard! Also the bathrooms are kinda cramped.

Well we took it from the funny side, so we had no problem with it :D If you think it's nothing for you, find something else :)

Unique Quality: Pizza night at wednesday -> be sure to are quick so you get enough ;)

TV at the room!

good heating :))

Well, it isn't the most glamorous of places to stay. Nor is it all that clean, but it is perfectly adequate if you are not looking for anything special.

We had a room which had a radiator that wouldn't turn off, so we roasted slowly through the night. But hey the bed was comfy if a little rickety. The staff I dealt with were all friendly and eafer to help.

In short this is a good place to stay if you are on a tight budget.

I think another VT member may have mentioned the longer term residents smoking in their rooms/showerooms - it is true and a little annoying.

Unique Quality: Hostel provides a breakfast consisting of bagels and muffins.

An internet station is available.

Bed linen is included.

Wednesday evening a load of pizzaz are delivered to the common room for guests to eat. We missed out because we arrived at 11:30pm :(

Directions: Near to 96thStreet Metro
