Liked: Very close to the subway line #1, literally like just 2 mins away, easy to get to from Newark International airport.

Disliked: Room has a stale smell, but doesn't matter much because I'm just there to lay my head for a night.

Liked: The atmosphere, great activities and tours

Disliked: Room is too crowded, no sense of privacy at all. During my stay there was a big party (something outside of the hostel with families and loud kids) that made a lot of noise and didn't end until midnight (although hostel's policy is quiet hours from 11pm)

Liked: The organised tours and pub crawls are great, especially for single travellers hoping to meet people and make friends, and for all travellers to get a feel for the local spots. Having the cafe downstairs was useful, and there were so many options of spots to hang out in the hostel - theatre room, lounge room, kitchen, cafe area, outside courtyard.

Disliked: The 12-bed dorm room did get a bit smelly (even the all-girls room!), and the windows were sometimes difficult to open - may have been because of the heat.

Liked: The location is quite good: west of the Central Park, close to the subway red line. Staff was moderately friendly. Each bed is supplemented by a personal light and a socket. Lockers are available if you have your own lock (or buy it in the store across the street).

Disliked: Someone occupied my bed by mistake, so I needed to wake him up in the night to settle it. Also, they charged a membership surcharge for whatever reason, so the final price was about $110 for two days in 10 person room, which was not cheap. Nevertheless, I did not took part in any activities or communicated with the other guests. While it was technically possible, staff did not encouraged that (like inviting to the party during check in), and I chose different activities in the city.
