I only stayed here one night but I will definitely book a bed here the next time I visit New York. The hostel is really big, clean and feels recently renovated. The staff was nice, the bed fairly comfortable and there were a lot of clean showers and toilets. Breakfast was not included but you could buy (good!) sandwiches and salads in the cafeteria downstairs. Also I really appreciate that they'd built in electrical holes (I can't come up with the word right now!) in the lamps so that you can charge your phone by the bed over night. Free but superslow wi-fi. It was quite expensive but I still think it was worth the money. Overall I am very satisfied!
