The close proximity to Manhattan (i.e. the short trip from the Roosevelt subway stop) and the low nightly rate are the most attractive features of the Kamay Lodge. The rooms were not spotless but were surprisingly cleaner than I expected. I still brought my sleeping bag and placed it on top of the bedding. The neighborhood is super sketchy.
There is nothing that I liked about this hostel. I had a lay over of 10 hours at JFK and I didn't want to spend the night at the airport.... But after I arrived to the hostel I felt that I should have stayed at the airport. The pictures they show on the website are a total lie. There is no free breakfast and they charged me 10 dollars for the shuttle, when the site says its free...I wouldn't call it a Hostel. It's a two bedroom small apartment behind the Super 8 Motel. The staff was rude and unfriendly. The sheets had hair strands all over, there is no kitchen, and is very hard to sleep with all the noise coming from the upstairs apartments and the ones next door...
Wifi and even a a computer with guest account provide internet access. There's a fridge too. Beyond that, beds ad narrow rooms n a very basic state. Even if decently cleaned, it looks miserable. AirCond very noisy but not effective.
It was very nice, that you have computer at the hostel + TV + it's 3min from subway. It was a litle bit uncomfortable to know, that any body who knows the pass for intrance in your hostel (when I was trying to get inside the gay from second flor from the same building told me that pass) can get in it.
Very near jfk It was written that bf was included, I needed to pay 5 usd extra!
I stayed in many hostels before but this was by far the worst. It looked like an odinary resident house was remodelled to be a hostel, so for example in the kitchen some beds were separated only by a curtain. And the bathroom was really tiny for all the rooms. The rooms were really hot with poor conditioning. The matresses look filthy, in yellow spots over, the linen looked the same. Overall, a really bad experience except for the Super 8 reception and airport shuttle. Rooms, bathroom, linen etc
