The Exchange

If you are easy-going and want to get to know NYC and the area around, you should come to our "brazilian" hostel in Newark. Why brazilian? This region of Newark is a luso- portuguese community and the owner is also from Brazil :) But we receive people from all over the world every day and we need help welcoming them and giving us a hand to maintain our place nice and tidy!
