“Convenient and peaceful stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

The hostel is extremely convenient if you're staying for a short visit. Its about 15 min. walk from LaGuardia or 5 minutes if you take the M60 public bus.

Pros:
- Right next to airport which is good for one night stay / layover
- Clean
- They give you clean hotels every day
- Helpful staff
- Huge high definition tv in kitchen (great for watching movies on a tired day)
- 5 min by M60 bus to metro line and 30 minutes to Union Station (Midtown)
- Very quiet if you're on Ditmars side of hostel
- Large kitchen, pots, pans for cooking and two large fridges to store groceries.

Cons:
- Far from Manhattan, especially if you head back to hostel after 12 it takes about 1.5 hour from Midtown.
- Very small lockers so you can only keep valuables. You have to leave you suitcase in the room
- They charge $5 for a pad lock
- WiFi is very poor. Keeps disconnecting.
- Expensive internet computers which are $2/ 10 minutes. The internet speed is very slow.

Room Tip: Stay on ditmars blvd side of hostel away from the highway. For groceries hit the main street on di...

Nice hostel for just having a place to crash at night. They clean the room each 2 days but change bathroom amenities everyday. Make sure you get a room not facing the avenue or it will be impossible for you to sleep.

I would like to recommend this hostel with full heart. Excellent place to stay, just minutes away from the Laguardia Airport and 20 mins from JFK. Free super speed wifi, room in excellent situation. Toilet was clean, with no spot of dirt or hair. 24 hours warm water. Front desk is very cooperative. room heater was good as well.
Over all, it worth to have experience with this inexpensive hostel.

Room Tip: Cleanness is must, front desk or reception should be cooperative, location from airport is must see

I stayed there for 3 nights with my friend. We lived with 2 strangers..that was fun :) There employees there was fine...if you ask them questions, they will answer you but they are not very kind...i mean they dont like to smile to guests. Anyway, the location of westway hotel is really good, just 20 minutes to get downtown of Manhattan. The room and bathroom was both clean. I would like to recommend this hotel to people who wanna save money and travel by yourself. :)

Very clean and tidy rooms. Everything looked new. I was in a 4 bed room, however I had the room to myself. The only downside was the noise from the highway, which you get used to after the first half hour. Great for backpackers, or single young individuals who need a clean place to sleep and take off the next morning. Buses stop at within feet of the door.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on the opposite side of the building with respect to the highway.

Well, I stayed in better hostels in my life but Westway stays as the best place for me to sleep in NYC according to price. Room service is done every second day, everything is clean and personnel is very helpful. And I love the blankets :)
