The hostel is basic but clean and friendly. Rooms are small but ours had an ensuite (shared amoung the 8 people in our dorm) and was decent enough. The hostel is small and over a few levels (no lift) with the main kitchen on the ground floor, TV and games room in basement and rooms above. We like to walk so decided to travel into Manhattan on foot. This was quite a walk with the hostel being on 129th but we didn't mind. If you prefer quicker means of travel, this is close to trains/subway. We felt it was a little far out for us and next time we would go for something more central. Being 2 females alone we didn't always feel 100% safe walking back to the hostel at night and on arrival at the hostel but again, we could have taken a cab!
If you want something close to the action or are a female travelling alone, perhaps give this one a miss.
