Liked: I liked how clean the hostel was kept. After staying in allot of dirty hostels previously it was nice to stay in a well maintained hostel.

Disliked: The pictures online do not look like the rooms or the hostel as at all. It's beat up and rough and the rooms are no way near te size advertised. It was like living in a shoe box. Anyone who has used the pictures as anything to go by will get a nasty shock however I was only here for a week an didn't min due to the location.

Liked: This hotel is in a good location, close to the subway station and couple places of interests, such as cnetral park, the Met. And I was surprised that it has so many bars, grocery shops, and restaurant around by too. If you're looking for a cheap hotel with good location to visit New York City it maybe a good choice for you.

Disliked: The bathroom is so tiny! It is the smallest bathroom I've ever seen. Anything is sooooo tiny. The breakfast was gone so quickly, if you get up around 8:30, then there is probably nothing left. The wifi is only working in the lobby area but not the room.

Liked: It was close to a subway station

Disliked: The hostel was dirty, you got dirty towels and the carpets in the rooms looked like the have not been vacuumed for years. The rooms were too hot even if you would have the window open all the time. In general the staff there was nice and helpful except on girl, she had absolutely no idea how to check us in and she did not helped us with anything. She was unfriendly and blamed me for things just because she did not tell us all the rules of the hostel. The door to our was really hard to lock and unlock, we had to the reception a few times to ask for help.

Liked: I stayed at the Fit Hostel for five days. The location was conviently located in a safe neighborhood walking distance from Central Park and only one block from the subway. I was put in my own private room with my own bathroom which was awesome! Clean towels and breakfast every morning was a huge plus. The hostel staff were so delightful! Valerie and Salome were gems! They were very knowledgable about the city and approachable. I will definietly stay here again when "I go back to New York City!

Disliked: The elevator was a bit slow, old and in use a lot.

Liked: The atmosphere is good and its a safe place.

Disliked: The heaters click at night are so loud they woke me up (ear plugs recommended). The bathrooms are old and were relatively clean. The bathroom windows are at seat level and the shades don't completely cover the window (not private).
