Liked: I like the hostel and would everyone reccomend to stay there. The lobby is nice and they have places to relax with nice couches. There is a billiard and you can watch TV over a beamer. Additionally, I loved the kitchen: it was new and had everything you need (normal stuff, toaster, mixer, freezer, microwave....). The room was nice and big enough for eight person. The Bathroom was allways clean.The hostel organizes different events like comedy or tours. We went to a Yankees game and clubbing on a friday.

Disliked: nothing

Liked: Perfect location and very clean! There is an awesome cafe (really good coffee and bagels) and great hostel events :) There are two great common areas and it's really easy to meet people. Lockers in the rooms are really big and it's enough to have a padlock.

Disliked: Most of the staff were really helpful while some seemed simply impatient- that's my only concern.

Liked: One of the best hostels I have stayed in as a solo female traveller. Great location in the Upper West side, easy to commute around the city, very clean facilities, felt very safe around here. The staff were very helpful, there are a lot of amenities for any scenario (food available, lounging rooms, pub crawls, comedy nights) and if you're simply there to sleep, it's great for that too.
