    Hi Jessie, There was something on a site of Comodo hostel that said you recommended it. It is near Bushwick. I am moving my daughter to Bushwick June 28 and my 18 year old son and I are on a budget and will not be spending much time in our place except to sleep for a few days. If you think this is a good place to stay or have any other recommendations, I would really love you even more!!! (I’ve been reading about your travels and really admire you.)
    Thank you,
    Lisa Gregori

      @Lisa: Thank you so much for the kind words! Unfortunately I’ve never stayed at the Comodo Hostel. I’ve been to the NY Moore and NY Loft Hostels — never actually stayed in them, as I live in Bushwick — but they seemed like good places to stay. Hope that helps! 🙂
