I booked a room for a week, and due to a family emergency, had to check out after one night. THEY TOLD ME THEY WOULD REFUND ME AND NEVER DID. After calling for over a week and giving me the run around, they still didn't give me a refund. Plus, when I went to check out, no one was at... More

Okay so the location was good and there was nothing wrong with the staff. But the place is practically falling apart apart, bathrooms didn't seem to get cleaned regularly, washing machines wouldn't work properly and seemed under -facilitated. Itbwas quite hot with no fan or working air-con in the room.

Super basic rooms, nothing pleasing for the eyes but clean and definitely good enough for just sleeping there a few nights. It's hard to find something affordable in New York, so this is a good option. Good location, 5 min walk to Central Park and a metro station and really nice staff that are glad to help you book transportation... More

I don't know who this hostel paid to take photos for their website, but they just pay them more - this was nothing, absolutely nothing, like what it was billed to be. Starting outside the room itself - The stairs were practically a death trap. One step platform wasn't even attached, it was just set on the base of the... More

Terrible experience! Never again! I and my friend were in the room on the 1st floor and had a mouse in our room. When we told it to a woman at the reception desk, she answered us "no problem". Room was dirty and bathroom as well. We did not get any linen. I will never go there again! The only... More

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

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.
