I stayed here with some friends from uni during a trip in February 2011 but wasn't able to select this date. I really loved the place I have to say. Everything was clean, very spacious yet cozy and staff was extremely friendly. The hostel is situated close to grocery stores, bakeries and coffee shops. It is also just around 2 blocks from Central Park which gives you the chance of a nice walk if the weather is on your side. The only drawback is that it is quite far away from the main tourist attractions (except Central Park) and the city centre. However, there is a Metro Station very close by and most things can be reached without difficulties, it just takes a while. I'd def recommend the place!
