Would describe it more as a B&B. Clean & comfy, rooms have their own little TV. Generous breakfast included every morning, Has coin operated laundry in the building as well as a laundromat next door. Would definitely recommend.

Comfortable, clean, generous breakfast, great location, free Wi-fi. Fantastic for the price. Would definitely recommend if you are planning on seeing a lot of NY and just need a home base. The only improvement might have been thicker toilet paper.

This place is good for a hostel. I stayed there before my flight to Italy, and loved how you can meet people from all over the world. The beds were not comfortable, but it was cheap enough. I think prices changed since I visited, but it was a good deal.

This was a really great hostel. It was comfortable and really clean - the cleanliness was the most important bonus for me having come from a more expensive and dirty hostel over on the west side. The breakfast was nice but a bit too sweet for my British tastes - waffles, syrups, muffins, bagels, oreos etc. The only reason I...

The breakfast each morning was great. There were many options available, including fresh waffles, donuts, fruit and bagels daily, great for those travelling on a budget. The...

I came into NYC on the 23rd st. green line which was only 3 short blocks to the hostel (5 min.). From the moment I walked up the stairs to the front desk the service was very personal, the girl knew I was coming and already was looking to put me in a better room, she got me room #16...

The hostel is great, very comfy, the location is amazing, breakfast is superb - coffee, doughnuts, fruit, very clean bathrooms BUT be very careful what room u r booking as I ended up having one with no window which felt very claustrophobic and like living in a shoe box. I understand it was all my mistake, so be sure to...
