This "hotel" was one of the worst establishment I've stayed at in my life, and I've slept in plenty of hostels and cheap accommodation. $70 a night got me a room with a windows with a view on a wall, no linen, a ceiling that was falling to pieces and bugs. Like the beetle kind. And the bathrooms were horrible... More

It was totally fine considering that it's so cheap. The staff was so kind and helpful, the room is like 50$ for a night and you only need a place to sleep because you're in NY right? Bagels in the.morning where fresh and it was a nice touch. You have a fridge so you can leave your own food if... More

We stayed in a two bedroomed dorm at this hotel in August. The hostel is in a great location; close to subways that take you to Times Square in about ten minutes. The staff on the front desk were very welcoming and we were seen to very quickly. There are luggage storage facilities if you arrive before check in, and... More

Hotel is next to Central Park, easy to find, not far away from a subway station. Room was clean and very spacial, but quite dark and there was something beeping the whole night. Bathrooms were also clean and neat and towels are free of charge. But wifi is accessible only in the lobby and breakfast is only white toast bread,... More

The location of this hostel is right next to 86th st Station on the 1 train. So its pretty close to most places. You basically pay for what you get - a bed for the night. I was using it to crash for 2 nights and I came back pretty drunk each time so I can't complain. The showers and... More

So, I am not very hard to please and have had the pleasure ofstaying in some great hotels and hostels. I will start off with the good, the staff seemed to be pretty friendly and helpful which is always a GOOD thing. Now for the not so GOOD. The free wifi is actually only accessible in the lobby which is... More

I had $150 STOLEN from my room, which was locked by keycard. The only other person with access was the front desk lady (who was very suspicious). Also, the pictures lie.. It doesn't look nearly as nice as it does in photos. SKETCHY place!

Very good place for the price: I had the chance to have the best room (or so I was told!), a big one with it's own bathroon inside. The sheets were clean, there were clean towels you could pick at the reception. The breakfast is not that good (just bagels with some coffee) but at least you have something to... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
