I have some issues with claustrophobia so I figured I'd be in for it, staying in a hostel in Manhattan. However, the room I stayed in (4 beds, all-female) was awesome. Very comfortable and spacious. Cleaned properly daily. Nice bathroom and shower.
The staff is super friendly. There is a decent, filling breakfast, consisting of a bagel and a piece of fruit, with some generic coffee and cereal. Though I wish breakfast started earlier than 8am, as I'm a bit of an early riser.
The location is great. There are a lot of great shops in the neighborhood and it's pretty and well kept. There's a noise curfew so it never got too crazy.
The only thing I hated is the TV in the common room, which the staff kept blaringly loud. None of the visitors were watching it; it was just a nuisance. I don't believe most travelers like having the TV on all the time (I sure don't).
