I booked for a shared dorm here , however when I reached they said all the shared dorms are full so they gave me a single room instead (of course at shared dorm price - 50 points bonus form me).
It was very near to the Chelsea market and all the cool places in Chelsea. The breakfast was moderate. Only problem was the room heater (because no air conditioning was there) was not warm enough (however when I asked they gave me two blankets, so I was warm enough :) ).
If I go for a solo trip to NYC again I will definitely go for this hostel.
