        It isn't. There's no need to be unhappy. You can stay there and I'm sure you'll have a good time.

        I hear it's fun to stay there.

        But no, it's not for gay people. Although I'm sure they're allowed too.

        No, this is completely untrue. It is for anyone.

        Hahaha, no. Stopped in one before and it certainly didn't appear to be full of gays (not as though I question every person I cross on their sexual orientation). Actually met some cool people at the one I stopped at.

        Have you tried Rita's Appartment hostel in new york? It doesn't always come up on hostelworld etc. It's basically a small apartment with a 4 bed dorm with it's own lounge and kitchen. Was the cheapest place I stayed in NYC though this was in November, might be booked up for new year's already. It's in Harlem.
