Liked: Great service. Clean bathrooms, inside bar, big lounge. It's in the upper west side, which is not the best to go it, but you can take the subway which is very close. There are not many hostels downtown manhattaan so this is a good option.

Disliked: Lacks of atmosphere. If you are travelling alone it's not the best way to party. The pub crawls sucks but at least you can have a few beers with people from the hostel in a boring bar. Also they allow groups of students to stay in the hostel, and it looks like a kinder garden in there. The no alcohol policy is very bad. They tried to do some sort of party by giving us 2 beers per person. There wasn't a good vibe but that's not their fault I guess

Liked: It's so easy to get places. The onsite shop is decent. They organize good outings.

Disliked: Hostels without bars and with alcohol bans through the entire building are ridiculous! This should never happen. I could understand no alcohol in designated areas, or perhaps out of one's room, but to be totally dry is crazy! It will cost the company business for sure.
