Liked: Very affordable in an excellent NYC location!Friendly staff, a well-equipped kitchen and a cozy common room.

Disliked: Having to leave your suitcase at the reception is quite uncomfortable, especially as the rooms would be spacious enough to accommodate them.As I had to leave before 8 a.m., I had to give my key back the night before in order to get the deposit back, thus not being able to leave the hostel after 11 p.m.

Liked: The hostel is conveniently located in the Upper Westside and easily reachable by car/taxi/subway. The neighborhood is really great! The hostel itself is basic but you have all you can ask for.

Disliked: Everything (towels, internet, leaving your luggage after checkout) costs extra. Still the prices are very reasonable.
