Great place to stay on a budget and spend on other things you want to do. Check in was okay. The girl who served me was not having a good day or something. Hence, the so so service. I got the top bunk bed.....for someone who reserved there for 4 nights, I expected to get the lower bed, but this... More

Stayed with this hostel and loved the location which is a block from the Subway, clean dorm, extensive Wifi coverage, breakfast included with a great price. New York isn't the cheapest place for accommodation but this gave great value. Activities, tours organised are worth taking part to meet other travellers. Such a welcoming hostel.

Stayed in 8 bed female dorm on 1st floor at front. Even so, very little street noise. The dorm areas feel a bit institutional and old fashioned compared to lots of hostels these days (not many plug sockets in the room, no individual bed lights etc) but overall the hostel is good with a really nice cafe, common areas and...

Great atmosphere, activities to socialize, nice rooms, nice bathrooms, spacious lockers. Super helpful staff, great location. What else can you ask for? The location is in the upper west side, it's close to central park and just one block away from the subway station. There are lots of options for food and drink around and riverside park is also walking... More

My first time in a hostel sure got me a few new friends across the globe and touring nyc with them gave a lot of insights to their own country. Coming to the location, it's close to subway station 1. This makes it easier to travel anywhere across the city and come back easily even if very late. I stayed... More

One of the best hostels I've stayed at!! Location is ideal (one block away from the 1 train, about 3 blocks from the 3 train), amenities are amazing and modern, and cleanliness is exceptional. Staff is so friendly and helpful, it's almost ridiculous! I have absolutely no complains about this hostel.

I've stayed here a few times and while it's big and safe, it's a completely over priced and unhelpful hostel. Hostels are meant to be there to support and help all kinds of travellers and especially the Hostelling International ones. This hostel is an embarrassment to HI Hostels. The staff and overall management are only in it for the money.... More

I had a coupon for a second night's stay after I flew from Oman to Bahrain to Paris to get here. The wifi is good on the top fourth floor in early morning when others are asleep not using it. Lots of room in the showers with a private dressing area for your wet feet. Get the 7 day metro... More

Good localization, organized and clean. Perfect hostel with good space and many options of activities during the week. You can know people from all around the world and pay a little bit cheap for a expensive city like NYC.
