First I have to say that I'm an avid traveler and been on countless hostels in Europe and the americas... having said that... the only reason I'm giving this place 4 stars is due to the Staff and the location. Both are simply unbeatable... Arthur and the other guys were simply wonderful and there in no way in this astral... More

Well, I was happy to stay in FIT Hostel because I just arrived in NYC (from Brazil alone) and had a problem with the place I was staying. I stayed there for 11 days. The first time I went to the bathroom, the toillet was clogged and there was poop everywhere, the cleaning lady only got there in the morning.... More

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

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.
