For a budget trip it's the right place to stay, great location, great hostel! Bedrooms and bathrooms were cleaned everyday, they have storage room and a lot of chill out places inside the hostel (good to meet new people from everywhere), super close from a subway station, and few blocks away to central park!

Great location in NYC! Just a block away from a subway stop! Has lots of nice activities, and a great building (awesome kitchen, movie room, games, room, outdoor patio, lounge...). Has free WiFi, which is pretty fast if you aren't in the crowded areas. I went there alone, but made many friends and discovered lots of places! The only part... More

I have stayed in this hostel twice now. The first time in 2011 was in a 12 bed dorm and the second time was this summer in a 6 bed dorm. Both experiences with this hostel were great! The hostel itself is really clean and its decorated in a cool way! It's more like a trendy hotel than a hostel.... More

Excellent stay I've had here in New York. I stayed 6 nights and can't fault the place, everything was excellent from service, a great kitchen, bedding, towels and even the café was nice as well. Close to the subway, close to getting to downtown and close to Central Park. It's in a reasonably safe neighbourhood, but if you have your... More
