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

Friendly and helpful staff. Simple but nice breakfast, especially considering it is just a hostel. Good bathrooms. PERFECT location. Good cleaning. The rooms are large. Bonus: I was one hour late for my check out but they didn't charge me for that. The mattresses could be thicker, but I had a good sleep anyway.

I work for the hospitality industry I may say that this is a terrible hostel. The pictures on Fit Hotel site are nothing like what you are going to find once you check-in. The front desk staff does not acknowledge guest when they pass by the desk, even if you talk to them you have to wait for them to... More

ZERO Stars across the board. As a native New Yorker, strongly recommending that you AVOID this nasty place and search for other hostels in our City or in the outer boroughs. First of all, is it Jazz on Amsterdam or is it called FIT Hotel? - and it's not a Hotel - property doesn't share the qualities of a standard... More

We only stayed at this hostel for two nights, the first night was good but the second one was terrible and completely ruined my opinion of this hostel. When we arrived we were told that they had over booked and that they did not have any of the two person dorms that we had booked available. We couldn't believe our... More
