I really liked this hostel. Great location on the corner of 24th St 3rd Ave with 5 mins to the subway. Sites like the Empire State building and Flatiron Building are within walking distance. Lots of restaurants (esp Indians) in the area and also drugstores with all your necessities. Hostel very clean. I love the kitchen, wouldn't mind to have... More

When I arrived at the hostel, there was a sign on door from the department of buildings saying 'VACATE, DO NOT ENTER'. The sign explained that'conditions in the building are imminently perilous to life and reentry is prohibited until conditions have been addressed, violators are subject to arrest'. Hostel is still open and operating, and when I asked the girl... More

As with many of the previous reviews, this hostel is in a great location. Close proximity to Madison Square, the metro, supermarkets, pharmacies and a handful of hip restaurants with raving reviews. The area is extremely safe. Now to the negatives. The staff are extremely rude. This guy who fills in the night shift just storms into the kitchen without... More

This hostel was in a great location. Staff were very helpful and the kitchen was fully equipped! The rooms are small, as expected in NYC but you will not get better accommodations for the prices this hostel offers! The beds are not that comfortable and we were awaken each morning with a loud banging noise, but other than that, this... More

Came to NYC in the middle of winter. Glad I stayed here, located in a central part of the city and extremely close to the subway. There are a large of shops and food nearby around union square and the flatiron gramercy area. The hostel itself feels a little cramped, but theres free breakfast and is spotlessly clean. A bit...

Coming in at $79 each a night, my friend and I were sceptical about a seemingly expensive hostel, but were left with little alternative in the ever-expensive New York. All aversions flew out the door when we arrived (albeit we had to scale a long, steep set of steps to reception with heavy suitcases - no lift), in the sweet-smelling,... More

The hostel is located in middle Manhattan, near train stations, the Union Square, making many of NYC atractions close enough to get walking. The room and the bathroom were very clean, and the breakfast was honest for the price.

A very friendly place to stay. Good location. Very reasonable for New York. Generous breakfast provided. Tea and coffee available all day. Share bathroom facilities but that was no problem. The staff were very helpful.
