We stayed here for 4 nights in a private doubleroom, floor number 9! The rooms are very small and you cant open the window which is not so nice because even though its winter you need fresh air! The beds are alright, they clean it everyday and you have fresh towels everyday. Thats great because a lot of hostels dont... More

If you are on a tight budget, want a room just to sleep in and go, and be in an ideally conveniet location in Manhattan, this is it. But as they say you get what you pay for. The rooms range from cheap to about $60 a night more and I would recommend going for the more. For this you... More

I was expecting some quirky experiences based on the Village People song. I really enjoyed my stay here, and I would do it again. If you are looking for value in NYC, this is it! There is VERY tight security, so you don't have to worry. The rooms are spartan, but they are pretty comfortable. It is close to MANY... More

Well location was great but the stuff act like a police in prison,especially the guys at the fronte desk. They treat me like I was been there for free 8 days.The room was clean but the bathroom look like hospital for hommles.However for that price you can finde a hotel where you will be treated like a guest with dignity.

I stayed here for the first 2 nights of my week long trip in NYC. For what it was, it was great. If you're expecting luxury look elsewhere, but the room, and the facilities for the price were great. This combined with the incredible location make it a good place to stay.

We hosted in this place from 10th to nov/14th 2014. My score about it: LOCATION = 10 ROOMS / CLEANING = 7 BATHROOM / CLEANING = 8 SERVICES = -14 (Yes, 14 NEGATIVE) -> Please give some attention about what I´ll describe below, its quite serious!) The feeling of being there was like we are there in favor to the... More

Okay, so this place is NOT a hotel. But it is really really well situated. I loved that I can step out and just do my runs at Central park. A two-minutes walk also take me to the metro. So it kind of solve my major problems. But really, there are people there to keep the place not to take... More

As a student and young traveller I found this hostel to be incredibly safe and amazing for the location. I didn't have a very big budget and me and a travelling companion split bunk bed room which was on the highest floor, one of the newly renovated once I think. I was expecting a lot worse than what we received!... More

Very basic accomodaiton, but cheap and in a good location in the West End of NYC. Wifi was extremely slow which made planning the rest of our week in NY a bit annoying. Stayed here for 2 nights, don't know too much about the places facilities as spent most of the time exploring the city.

My issue is not with my room, although it was marginal. The room was clean and the box spring with a paper-thin pad was surprisingly OK once you got in bed. The room had no drawers or selves for clothing, just a closet with 3 hangers (yes, I should have known better than to decide not to bring my own)... 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.
