Unless you enjoy dirty filth, I would NOT recommend staying here. My friend and I (both in our early 30's and from Missouri) stayed here 1 night and we slept fully clothed as we were afraid to even touch anything. Yes, we are from the Midwest where everything is usually clean, nice, and reasonably-priced, but this was truly beyond what we could have even imagined as "slumming it" at a hostel in NYC. Trust me, we aren't "snooty" suburbanites who were mad that it wasn't like the Ritz. This was really really bad.
After paying for an "upgrade" to a private room, we still barely slept a wink. Every corner of the place had dirt. The bed and linens were nasty. The TV in room didn't work other a blue-screen. The bathroom was full of mold and filth. The air-conditioner in the window had no caulking, so all the draft came in and we froze. You get 1 sheet and no towels. No blankets. For $100, you'll get a dirty bed and a door to close. That's it really.
I would never, ever stay here again unless I was 18 years old and planned to go out and get so sloppy drunk that I didn't care what pile of garbage I put my head on. Avoid.
I would, however, recommend The American Dream hostel on 24th. Its very clean and reasonable as hostels go.
