I stayed there in 2009 because I had to move from another Jazz Hostel - they were full. So the first one was absolutely great. But then coming to UWS...what a disappointment. The rooms were crappy, I had a big spring poking in my back, the kitchen (?) facilities were in a quite unusable state. Some people were moved to another building at check in (I got the last bed in the same house) even though they had reservations...and all the guests seemed to be in an unsocial mood. I am not sure if this was influenced by the hostel itself or if it was just not my stay there...anyway, I would never go back there, even if it's a budget option in NY and even if I really love UWS. No more jazz, I had enough of the cold atmosphere there.
