Ok if you don't stay in the room more than it's needed to sleep.
Room: tiny, beds are very noisy, air conditioning sounds like it is going to fly out of the window. Very loud. Otherwise, quite clean and okay.
Restrooms: no restrooms in the rooms. The common ones are okay, nothing more to add. Well, what would you expect from the hostel? A lot of them were out of order, but that didn't cause any queues.
Wifi: nonexistent in the rooms. Only in the lobby.
Location: great. Close to underground and central park. A 15 min walk to the Times sqr.
Lounge area: quite nice, and a self-service area where one can buy something to eat is handy.
To sum it up, if I come to NYC once again (which is unlikely), I could decide to stay here again
