Liked: Location. Hair dryer. Clean towels at reception.

Disliked: NO MILK with breakfast drinks; plastic, disposable cups and cutlery, paper plates. The only choice is toasted bagel with jelly (which is yummy, but every day...?) On the last day they ran out of jelly, so the only choice was bagel with butter. You have to buy yourself a padlock if you want to keep your staff safe in the room. Internet is $2 per 20mins.

City break

Liked: The location is not bad, it's near the Central Park and 10 minutes by subway from Times New Square. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Not the typical hostel, there are many people living there like a residence. They don't have any curtains, you can be in the bathroom and the people from the building across the street are watching you. There is no internet in the rooms, just in the lobby. There was a problem with the card machine and you didn't have keys until the next morning. You have to pay to leave your luggage there, $4 each bag (first time I saw this in any hotel/hostel). It's an ok hostel to use as an emergency and to stay one night like we did.

Liked: the rooms were super super clean, silent, and the staff was always ready to help with any problem. No complaint at all. I would go there again.

Disliked: The food offered for breakfast is very minimal. however, considering that many hotels and hostels don't even provide breakfast in New York City, it is always welcomed a bit of bread with ham and a coffee.

Liked: Guy behind the desk was very helpful in arranging to have a camera charger posted to me that i'd left at the last hotel.

Disliked: Really hot in the room. And pipes in the corner of the room were super noisy throughout the night. Several services were out of order, like the drink machine.

Liked: Its in a good spot on the upper west, subways are close by, walking anywhere is pretty easy.

Disliked: There is no vibe, hardly anyone talked in the hostel. Common rooms weren't very inviting. The check in staff didn't care much for anything.
