stayed for almost two weeks and met eddy and the guys. Place not too hard to find at all. Fantastic location with shops around the corner but the yemini guy in the bodayaga is funny, great staff and good for the Budget. Management is really good and friendly.

Overpriced and rank. I've stayed in a lot of hostels but never one as stereotypical as this. The first member of staff I spoke to was rude. The prices were higher than suggested online. When I climbed the many stairs to my room it had no furniture except a rickety bunkbed and a broken set of lockers. The radiators was... More

Stayed here back in 2007 when travelling alone. It was cheap and basic. Cannot complain for the cheap price. Staff were all very helpful. If you are keen on cooking I would probably avoid as when I was there in 2007 kitchen facilities weren't great, but if this isn't a problem then this is a fantastic place. The position is... More

I generally stay in a hostel the first time I visit a new place. My experience is that they are beautiful, well kept and you can meet wonderful people during your stay. The only good thing about this hostel is the location. This was worse than being in jail. We checked in and were immediately shocked by the accommodations. The... More

Had a pretty decent stay at this hostel. Was an excellent price for New York City and very clean for New York City considering the number of disgusting hostels and hotels there are in the city! NO bedbugs, and the room was kept very clean. They made our bed each day as well which is not usual in hostels. Pretty... More

This is a great little hostel, it's on 95th just off Broadway close to subways and Central Park. I've stayed here twice and i've found the staff to be really friendly and helpful. I always end up arriving early and there is always a place for me to store my luggage until I can check in. The rooms are quite... More

Nice big room with a double bed. Clean towels everyday and we had our bed done everyday. The people at the front desk not very friendly. Great location one block away from Subway and restaurants, deli, groceries, nearby. The neighbours in front quite noisy.

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.
