Liked: The hostel was very safe and clean in all places. There were good facilities such as lockers, wifi, snack bar (open very late), a reasonable free breakfast and the beds were comfortable. Free towels and shower slippers were provided.

Disliked: Some of the tables in the dining area was unstable and could do with being replaced.The hostel has a main road outside - this can sometimes be noisy in the bedrooms early in the morning.Other than that, this hostel was great.

Liked: Fantastic atmosphere, one the best I've ever seen around the world. Location is good, even though I liked more the exciting from the mid and downtown, specially in the late hours. A very good place for those who, like me, consider the nightlife as an important part of any trip.

Disliked: I must say I saw a little mouse in my room, but i would definitely stay there again. It's not their fault, NYC is full of rats. The bathrooms are always clean, you see the cleaning staff working all the time...

Liked: Cleanliness. Well appointed bathrooms.

Disliked: The fact that the cleaning ladies came into men's bathrooms (and rooms for that matter) while men are using them without knocking or announcing themselves (or at all).

Liked: Staff very helpful and knowledgable about the area. They provided me with addresses and phone numbers of nearby parking garages before my visit. Excited to see that a century building could be re-purposed for serving travelers like me.

Disliked: I arrived late in the evening, and checked out early. I wasn't there long enough to form a dislike

Liked: It has a very relaxed atmosphere. Tours are good and cheap. They also have several activities and amenities to help you socialize with other guests. It has a huge well equiped kitchen if you want to reduce your catering expenses. Rooms are quite crowded but good enough, and have a huge locker so you don't have to worry about your luggage. Though it's not on the best location, it's just a block from a very convenient subway stop so you never have to take cabs.Highly recomended.

Disliked: Many people on the rooms.Slightly expensive for a hostel (but not for NY).Not that many restrooms for the size of the hostel.
