This is a very good HI hostel. Rooms are spacious with AC - quite comfy beds. Big, modern, clean showers and toilets. Although on level 4, a lot of the showers and toliets were out of order and therefore there was not enough for the amount of people on that floor. Massive modern kitchen and lots of seating areas on two levels. The hostel arranges lots of social events, from walking tours to clubbing, although we didn't manage to do any of these as New York keeps you more than occupied.
Check in and check out was fine - although staff could be friendlier. Breakfast is not included although there is a little cafe where you can buy bagels and tea/coffee quite cheaply. The hostel is near lots of little cafes, shops and small grocery stores and only 1 block from the subway - great location and easy to get back to at any time.
Would recommend for travellers or people wanting cheap accommodation for a holiday!
