I'm a retired banker who has stayed in a lot of luxury hotels. However, I am now traveling around the world and budgeting modestly. This was my first hostel stay ever and I have to say I was very impressed.
The rooms and hostel are clean, the location is fantastic (3 blocks north of Central Park and the subway). Breakfast is fruit, coffee, corn flakes,toast, bagels and coffee...all you want and enough to get your day started. WiFi in the rooms is not always reliable but no problem connecting in the kitchen.
The only thing that could dissuade or persuade people is that there is not really a big common area to meet people. The kitchen was usually crammed at breakfast and the back yard was used more by smokers than to sit and chat. But with that said, I had no problems meeting people in the hostel and finding my own space to be on my own.
I would definitely stay here again.
