There is many reasons to stay at this hostel and the main reason is the location and that the hostel is incredible big. As you probably already know, this is a Hostelling International hostel, meaning that it's a bit higher standard and a bit more pricey. It's located 2 blocks away from Central Park, which gonna take you 2-3 minutes... More

This hostel is a perfect option for a stay. Since New York is a giant city and there are alot to do and to see, you'll most likely won't be staying in your room even half of 24 hours so why to spend lots of money on expensive hotels... Allthough this hostel is also not so cheap. Anyhow, best option... More

Stayed here in late January and wasn't disappointed. Was there for three nights and had a nice stay. The rooms are pretty modern and have lockers. The bathrooms are also clean and modern. The location was really good, the subway is only across the street and takes around 10-15 minutes to get to Times Square. Probably on the pricey side... More

I stayed here two times while visiting new york city and can say that I only just had an okay experience both times that I visited. The staff was pretty good, friendly, and helpful. The bathrooms and rooms were clean and I had no problems with the amenities. My stay included one free breakfast as well. The first time I... More

Great place, felt nice and big, safe and each time I've been back they have improved it. Nice, large, clean rooms and it was always being cleaned by hostel staff. Good communal areas and reception staff. Right near the subway on 103rd st. A bit noisy staying in the rooms at the back of the building as it was nearer... More

You can lear so much interacting with other roommates. Also, in order to save money, use the kitchen which is underground. You can buy food and fruits on small markets around and cook it and on your own.

Incredible value for accommodation in Upper West Side, Manhattan, at 265 USD for 4 nights in a 12-bedded room within a grand historic building. Rooms/beds were comfortable with clean and fresh towels and beddings. Bathrooms were always bright and spotlessly clean. I love the cheerful and well-equipped kitchens with cool dining areas. It helped that fresh vegetables/seafood is readily available... More
