the best thing about this hostel is it's location.
it's right in the middle of chelsea, and you can walk to many central places in a short time, like madison sqaure garden, times square, west village and of course chelsea.
I stayed there twice.
once on augost 2011, and once on june 2012.
in the first time I was with two friends of mine in a private room which was really nice and good, but on the second time i was in a 4 beds mixed dorm which was actually a hallway with four beds in it. it wasnt a room. it was tiny, unbelivebly set to be a room. but for people who look for a hostel in the center for 50$ a night, it might be enough.
the service is unbelievebly awful. the people working there are not nice at all, and that is annoying. I asked at the front desk to book a room for the next month when ill be back in NYC, and the guy told me to book it online. when i told him why cant i do it now, (i was right in front of him) he didnt even look at me and told me to go pay for a computer and book myself a room over there. that was simply awful.
the breakfast is very basic - cornflakes, coffee, a bagle with jam and an apple.
the atmosphere was OK.
at 11pm you can't sit outside anymore. that was wierd.
bottom line, if you find another place with the same price in the good of a location - take it, but if you can't - with it's great location, i would deffenitly go back there once again.
