Liked: The location is good. It's just 3 blocks down from a subway station. I had the good fortune of having great roommates throughout my stay. The price was also great and especially for New York standards.

Disliked: First of all. Only the guys at the front desk are helpful and the cleaning ladies are nice. The girls at the front desk are the most uninterested bunch of people I ever saw working at a hotel or hostel. Can't seem to crack a smile or answer in full sentences. I stayed on the fifth floor and there is no elevator. The floor only had 1 toilet with the toilet installed so close to the wall that you couldn't even use it properly. On top of that, some guests wash themselves at the sink in the restroom leaving the whole restroom completely wet. There are no facilities you can use for cooking. Only one microwave. They have comedy shows and activities that almost no one shows up for. The worst thing about this hostel for me was the large group of people who come here because they have job interviews or trying to make it in New York. These guests would only be sitting in the lobby doing nothing but sitting behind their laptops. Worst thing was the wifi. It only works in the lobby. Just the lobby! And during 2 days of my stay it didn't even work there.

Liked: I was very surprised by how great this hostel was. It was large, but there were no issues with noise or wait times for the communal washrooms. The staff at the desk were nice and helpful, and the hostel had various events to do each night. Our double room was a good size for the two of us to get ready comfortably each day and even had a nice view.
