Liked: I like the hostel and would everyone reccomend to stay there. The lobby is nice and they have places to relax with nice couches. There is a billiard and you can watch TV over a beamer. Additionally, I loved the kitchen: it was new and had everything you need (normal stuff, toaster, mixer, freezer, microwave....). The room was nice and big enough for eight person. The Bathroom was allways clean. The hostel organizes different events like comedy or tours. We went to a Yankees game and clubbing on a friday.

Liked: Perfect location and very clean! There is an awesome cafe (really good coffee and bagels) and great hostel events :) There are two great common areas and it's really easy to meet people. Lockers in the rooms are really big and it's enough to have a padlock.

Disliked: Most of the staff were really helpful while some seemed simply impatient- that's my only concern.

Liked: Decent condition

Disliked: Dorms too big so noisy Long queues for showers Cold water showers on several occasions Have to pay for luggage storage Not that central and metro works meant you often had to get off at the previous stop and walk several blocks to get to the hostel - not great after a late night out

Liked: One of the best hostels I have stayed in as a solo female traveller. Great location in the Upper West side, easy to commute around the city, very clean facilities, felt very safe around here. The staff were very helpful, there are a lot of amenities for any scenario (food available, lounging rooms, pub crawls, comedy nights) and if you're simply there to sleep, it's great for that too.

Disliked: Lauren left no negative feedback.

Liked: Great location ! Everything is pretty close. A lot safer than another place I stayed on the east side. I felt safe walking around at night. For a female I think that's a pretty big deal. The Deli right across the street are super friendly too.

Liked: Nice location and quite helpful staff.

Disliked: Had to change rooms during my 2 night stay even though I had booked more than a week in advance and was only notified upon arrival that I had to check out the next day at 11am sharp then check back in 5 hours later at 4pm. That was annoying. But they staff were understanding and gave free breakfast, would have rather just got a continuous room/bed though!

Liked: Mostly the cleanliness and good order of things. Staff was accomadating and nice, rooms and bathrooms were clean and secure. The property itself is well kept outside and in, with plenty of areas to relax in a quiet environment. The facility has great event options too! Free jazz, group activities... Full service cafe, kitchen... It was a great stay!

Disliked: Maybe more than one towel would have been nice, other than that all was great!
