The rather shady hostel that’s been operating at 97 Allen Street, misleadingly named MacDougal Street Synagogue, is now kaput.

Down, but not completely out, underground hostels are still very much a reality in this town. Though some are more conspicuous than others. In any event, there’s still some comfort in knowing that these institutions can survive amidst the trendy, multi-zillion-dollar hotel projects sprouting (or stalling out) all around the Lower East Side.
