The beds are not the best. The showers are not the nicest. But it's relatively cheap, is in a great location and acts as an amazing base for your time in the city! I spent most of my day out in the actual city, so I really only needed this to be a place where I could sleep and it... More

As the title says you are in a great location if you stay here, only a short walk from Times Square and right across the road from Central Park. The rooms themselves I think could do with a bit of a deep clean and the showers could definitely do with a refurb. A good bonus of this place is that... More

If you're looking for a singles club, this isn't it. :-/ If you're looking for a well run facility with a great variety of exercise options for the whole family, including two pools, then this is it! Great classes, a classic building, an amazing location. The best weight room in the city. If you're looking for the place as a... More

Chose the place for its location and affordable price (comparing to other accommodations in Manhattan) Positive sides: 1) Location (it's really perfect location in Manhattan) - very close to central park; - subway is around 8 min walk; - within walking distance to Time Square (we were walking every day); 2) Free WIFI in the room (what is even not...

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, I found the room to be spotless, the bed extremely comfortable, and the staff very helpful and friendly. Close to Central Park, and a Starbucks just down the street on the corner. What else could you ask for???

I wont stay here again even if it is near central park. The receptionists were not helpful or welcoming, and when I arrived at my room there were some men just randomly hanging around there doing nothing. As a solo traveller I didnt feel safe. The air con was so loud I could not keep it on. Only good thing... More

We had a private room with bunk beds, can't lie not what I was expecting at all it was tiny and nothing in the room no home comforts at all. There was a shared bathroom with misted glass doors on the showers but this gave no privacy at all. For the price it cost you can really moan - right... More

Positive: Location (100 meters from Central Park), Free WiFi. We got a room facing Central Park. The Gym was nice, but not the pool. Negative: This hostel is really worn and in serious need of maintenance. Every single door (toilets/showers and our room) that we encountered, needed to be lifted by the handle in order to close with lock. Cleaning... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
