    Hi, There are some great reviews on this Hostel. However, I am needing a place for about 12 hours to rest/sleep in between trains. So I am wondering if this place or any other hostel is safe for females and within walking distance of the Penn Station. I am willing to stay in Korea town if that is the closest. Thanks so much

    Yes, this place is very safe for female; there is always a manager at the reception desk; there are many drug stores and restaurants around open 24 hrs a day
