Eunice Damaris García Zavala thinks…

"Rooms are for 2 people so there is enough space, breakfast is ok but for the price they could offer more. The area is super nice, very close from subway and the Museum of natural History, but far…"

Liked: The location is not bad, it's near the Central Park and 10 minutes by subway from Times New Square. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Not the typical hostel, there are many people living there like a residence. They don't have any curtains, you can be in the bathroom and the people from the building across the street are watching you. There is no internet in the rooms, just in the lobby. There was a problem with the card machine and you didn't have keys until the next morning. You have to pay to leave your luggage there, $4 each bag (first time I saw this in any hotel/hostel). It's an ok hostel to use as an emergency and to stay one night like we did.

Disliked: There is no vibe, hardly anyone talked in the hostel. Common rooms weren't very inviting. The check in staff didn't care much for anything.

Liked: I liked how clean the hostel was kept. After staying in allot of dirty hostels previously it was nice to stay in a well maintained hostel.

Disliked: The pictures online do not look like the rooms or the hostel as at all. It's beat up and rough and the rooms are no way near te size advertised. It was like living in a shoe box. Anyone who has used the pictures as anything to go by will get a nasty shock however I was only here for a week an didn't min due to the location.

Liked: This hotel is in a good location, close to the subway station and couple places of interests, such as cnetral park, the Met. And I was surprised that it has so many bars, grocery shops, and restaurant around by too. If you're looking for a cheap hotel with good location to visit New York City it maybe a good choice for you.

Disliked: The bathroom is so tiny! It is the smallest bathroom I've ever seen. Anything is sooooo tiny. The breakfast was gone so quickly, if you get up around 8:30, then there is probably nothing left. The wifi is only working in the lobby area but not the room.

Liked: It was close to a subway station

Disliked: The hostel was dirty, you got dirty towels and the carpets in the rooms looked like the have not been vacuumed for years. The rooms were too hot even if you would have the window open all the time. In general the staff there was nice and helpful except on girl, she had absolutely no idea how to check us in and she did not helped us with anything. She was unfriendly and blamed me for things just because she did not tell us all the rules of the hostel. The door to our was really hard to lock and unlock, we had to the reception a few times to ask for help.

Liked: I stayed at the Fit Hostel for five days. The location was conviently located in a safe neighborhood walking distance from Central Park and only one block from the subway. I was put in my own private room with my own bathroom which was awesome! Clean towels and breakfast every morning was a huge plus. The hostel staff were so delightful! Valerie and Salome were gems! They were very knowledgable about the city and approachable. I will definietly stay here again when "I go back to New York City!

Disliked: The elevator was a bit slow, old and in use a lot.
