Liked: The Location was safe, 4 blocks away from the subway.

Disliked: Location is not that good, ok its close to the central park but it´s very far from downtown.No kitchen facilities like a fridge or like a firesideVery cold in the morning, the heater works only during the day, at night the heater is off. If you ask for a second blanket they look at you like if you want something very special. Also the matress is really hard. It´s very loud in the hostel, so bring earplugs if you want to sleepThe wifi is just shit, it´s not always working and it´s slow.Also I didn´t like the showers. there was no place to put your clothes. you have have to put them on the ground. so everything was wet after showering. Also the cleaning ladies cleaned the showers every day between 9 and 10 when everyone wants to shower. I cant unterstand why they cant do that in the afternoon.Next time i would choose another hostel.

Liked: Clean, decent breakfast, nice staff, good location. Good value for money (but I paid 50% off). I thought that the showers and the rooms were very clean compared to other hostels I've stayed at in NYC and London.

Disliked: Wi-Fi only on first and second floor. The doors open/close very loudly, so it can be disruptive at night, but, manageable.

Liked: This hostel is located in a nice part of town close to a subway, numerous delis/supermarkets and of course Central Park. It's really easy to walk to the bars that the Colombia kids drink in which I would definitely recommend going to and you can take a quick train downtown and see all the sites! The hostel has a pretty good range of activities going on in the evening ranging from pub crawls to comedy nights. Overall it was a fairly clean, warm and comfortable place

Disliked: The staff weren't particularly helpful and seemed more interested in hanging out with themselves as opposed to helping out travelers. Also I would say the beds were incredibly small so if you are over 6ft your feet will stick out the end, also my mattress was particularly thin so could feel the springs. Wifi was available in the rooms just incredibly slow. Breakfast started too late at 9am, fine for the hungover traveler but if you wanted a good day of exploring the city it's not ideal.

Liked: Very friendly staff. Looked to have good events available, though I didn't have time to partake of them.

Disliked: Uncomfortable beds - mattresses made of crinkly plastic and very hard. Room was sweltering hot as there was no way to control the heating. Even with the window open in January, the room was like a sauna.
