Liked: The metro was close and you could be in Central Park in 10 minutes.

Disliked: The pictures show a nice, clean and modern hostel. In reality, it was a dirty, small and old place where I would never return to. They show great pictures that don't match the reality. They say they are close to everything, in a nice neighbourhood, but is reality it's a 45 minute walk to Times Square and the bars etc. they mention aren't that great. The museums they mention are not at a 10 minute walk, but at a 30 minute walk. The floor of our room was very dirty; there was a hairball on the floor. What they didn't mention on the site was that there are a lot of people living in the building, it is not only a hostel. The people that live there have cats and so there was a lot of cat hair in the hall. Last but not least, there's no airconditioning in every room. When we were in New York, there was a heatwave and even in the middle of the night it was still 35 degrees celcius. If we had known that there was no airconditioning, we would've never booked the hostel.

Liked: Good location near Central Park but be aware that the subway does not run to the closest station at night and you have to catch an express train further north then transit back down south on a local train - may be considered unsafe for single or female travelers. Linen and breakfast provided free. Good wifi in lounge or reception area. Very helpful front desk staff.

Disliked: Make sure your room has air conditioning in summers peak season as it gets quite hot.

Liked: That there was shower and toilet inside the room

Disliked: Male staff entering the female room without waiting for being allowed in the room. Very bad. That the price I was given when I arrived was higher than what I arranged on the website. Quite disappointing.

Liked: The location

Disliked: The lights and air conditioning were not working on the night of my stay. The staff did not really do anything about the issue. It was almost impossible to sleep in the heat and was not worth the high price we paid.

Liked: some of the staff is helpful. kitchen is alright. guys i know this is like the cheapest one of hostelbooker but there are plenty cheap hostels in nyc and they are way better! im glad i only booked for 3 days. Even though some of them are full online but actually u can always find 1 bed even during weekends at other hostels. So just book for 1 or 2 nights and start looking for when u get here.

Disliked: bed is tiny and smells so bad! so overcharged.

Liked: Helpful staff, great location.

Disliked: There are people living at the 4th and 5th floors. So, you don't feel like you are at a private place. At the first floor, there was only one restroom. The bathroom and toilet should be seperate. Because when the shower is busy, you have to wait for a long time.

Liked: The location of the hostel is very good and the area around it is clean and safe. The tv room downstairs was a nice addition.

Disliked: There were not enough bathrooms, only one per floor. The internet is poor at best anywhere in the hostel apart from when downstairs. When you arrive you see that there is an added $3.50 per night and no reason is given for this. The kitchen isn't really a kitchen. The most you can really do is microwave food as you only have two plug in hobs which are dirty and small. For the price you are paying I would expect an actual kitchen, there isn't even a kettle.

Liked: It was located really well and everything was clean.

Disliked: The staff wasn't being friendly at all, they weren't very helpful and even gave me wrong directions at some point. All in all the atmosphere in that hostel just wasn't nice and it felt pretty anonymous. So I wouldn't recommend it for people staying alone. But I guess if you're simply looking for a bed and a clean shower it's totally fine.

Liked: not too much, the location is OK

Disliked: It´ś not that clean (especially in the corridors, also the bathroom was not very clean and very old) and partly it feels a bit strange, because the rooms are all around the building, but it´s not entirely occupied by the hostel and there also seem to live families. It is really bad value as it is really expansive (even for a city as NYC, I think) and then you additionally you have to pay for the most essential hostel services, as internet and lockers, which i find ridiculous.

Liked: Location

Disliked: There were no lockers, all valuables had to be put in the luggage storage room which was squashed and often left unlocked or unable to lock due to capacity restraints. Every time I wanted something from the room i had to wait at least half an hour for a staff member to appear, who knows where they went, and then wait for them to have time to open the room so i could get something out, and then repeat the process to put something back in. There were very limited bathrooms and one would have to wait at least half an hour in the morning for usage of a bathroom if you were not in an ensuite (which there were not many of). This is really annoying when someone is having a long shower and you need to pee.
