If you can't stand sharing bathroom with a bunch of bugs of mixed kind (at least 3 cockroach confirmed) - stay away! If you, like me, could cope with this and not having your room or common area cleaned for at least 7 days, then the low price an proximity to central Manhattan is factors to take into consideration.

Friendly owner - a character. Gave lots of tips on do's and don't's for NYC. The room I had was a "shoe box" but that suited me as I only needed somewhere to rest my head. The wifi worked in the small kitchen area. This accommodation is officially in the Harlem area. There is a launderette right opposite, and a... More

Very friendly owners I've got everything I needed. Wish I have found this place long time ago. If you want to stAy in NYC and not willing to spend tones of money, they have those private rooms with tv refrigerator, a little kitchen with microwave hot shower the front rooms has a better wifi.

Greeted by owner who was very nice and made an effort to show us the main site seeing attractions and how to get to them as well as a little info on the neighborhood East "Spanish" Harlem.

The hostel is nothing glamorous and it's located in East Harlem, a poor neighbourhood of Manhattan, but it's really close to the subway and Central Park and you will have cheap options to eat in the area (McDonald's, BK, KFC, Subway, Little Caesars Pizza, Dunkin Donuts, etc.). Also, Santos, the owner, is a very attentious person and will help you... More

Aside from the fact we were an hour late because we couldn't find the place we were greeted fondly by the owner. Our room was nice and comfy (private two person bunk-bed) with a wonderful kitchen,stove, and storage. We were two early 20's females and never felt nervous or worried about our stuff. We carried film equipment and expensive laptops... More

I was there with my friends in september 2011.. Santos (I think it was his name) was a real good guy. I love Harlem, and if I´m going back to NY I think I can stay at this place on more time.. Four happy people from Sweden

I was in shock when I saw the place, the area looked really rough and scared the life out of me. The reception was tiny and we could barely fit out cases in it. The staff were lovely and welcoming and helped us carry our bags up the narrow staircase. There were 2 communal showers/toilets and one had no lock... More
