“Good value and clean, service lacking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2010

We stayed at York St apartments for over a week and did enjoy staying there but the apartments probably wouldn't suit everyone. Not a social hostel at all just a place to do your own thing. We really liked having the desktop computer and free wifi. The kitchen and two bathrooms on our floor were cleaned each day and the place never felt overcrowded.

The area seemed really safe however it was a 15 minute walk to the subway.

We recommend you ask for a room with the double bed that's not on the mezanine - as if you get at all claustraphobic you wouldn't like sleeping on the mezanine as its only a couple of feet from the roof so you can't really sit up straight. Also, there is no railing on the edge of the mezanine, so don't sleep here if you tend to roll out of bed!

Other down sides include the very thin walls (think they are actually wardrobe doors) so you can definitely hear your neighbours (and if you sleep on mezanine you can hear people on the floor above). We also did not receive good service from the hostel manager who told us we could check out in the morning at 8 but wasn't there when we tried to do so!

However, all in all we had a good stay as we don't mind noise and really just wanted and safe and clean place to crash after a day out in wonderful NYC!
