Liked: The shower pressure was very good and I met a lot of friendly people. I loved the close access to the city from this location and the staff was pretty easy going.

Disliked: I wish they recommended to buy a lock when you get to the hostel so that no accidents can happen. I also wish they had a supply of water via vending machine on site.

Liked: Stuff was very nice and helpful, location ist nice (near Central Park and 20 minutes subway to downtown)

Disliked: NO atmosphere, you are not going to meet people easily. NO kitchen, just a microwave and you need to ask the staff to open it..wtf?!! NO free WIFI on the room, you need to pay! I stayed in three different hostels in NY and met a bunch of people, except in that hostel!

Liked: location, friendliness of the staff

Disliked: very very simple infrastructure, not always very clean.A bad surprise; it was written during the checkin that breakfast is included whereas kitchen is closed by sanitary authorities....wifi only free on the ground floor. Pay attention! The prices on this site don't inculde taxes. Do not ensure to be able to put all the people from the same reservation in the same room, though they managed to do it for us.

Liked: I stayed in an 8 bed dorm. The room was very comforatble for the amount of people. The location was excellent. Close to Central Park and the subway. I felt it was a very secure location. I even stayed an extra night. The staff was helpful and friendly.

Disliked: The complaing from some of the other guests. People complained about the lack of breakfast and the lack of an elevator. People were also complaining about the taxes, but that is clearly stated and will happen in all NY locations.

Liked: I liked that it was close to central park and close to public transportation

Disliked: No breakfast included, there was only a mens bathroom on my floor, the beds had no cushion and were very uncomfortable, it is pretty far from Times Square and other touristy areas, the staff was not helpful and did not seem to like working there. I would rather pay a few extra dollars and stay at a much better hostel
