As good as you would expect from a Hostel! It was perfect for me and I`ll go back.
The 4-bed room was clean, comfortable, relatively spacious & quiet. There were big lockers (bring your own lock) & a reading lamp for each bed. Linens (sheets & towel) included. Pre-checkin/post-checkout luggage storage in basement for $5.
The washrooms were as clean as you can expect when used by so many people. They are cleaned daily. There was a short wait in the morning during peak times. I took 2 showers during my stay: one cold, one hot.
Cafe has pretty good bagels (breakfast included one morning/not the next). Internet, gift shop & tourist info on site.
One block away from the subway & central park.
And all for $40, can`t complain!
