Clean and comfortable rooms, Good atmosphere, a bit on the expensive side but what isn't in New york. Good social areas and kitchen. Security is very good.
Great wifi access and desktops with printers available if needed. Not much in the area, a few smaller shops. Has great access to the metro. A fair distance form town but Metro fares are reasonable in New york city. Had a flight from La guardia airport and there is a bus stop about a 10 minute walk from the hostel that went direct and was only a local fare. Airconditioned in the summer so a relief when its hot outside.
would stay again.
