  • I absolutely loved this place. It was close to numerous subway lines, and the Midtown location was central. The staff were all very friendly, the room was clean and quiet. They even have a cat that lives in the building, who befriended me, which was a great added touch! I did not take advantage of the breakfast, so cannot comment on that, and the only thing I would have desired was an easy way to open the window in my room. It was cool outside, and I would've preferred the fresh AC. Recommended!

  • Perfect location and the breakfasts were amazing. I would not recommend this place if you have an issue with stairs. It is the perfect place if you are an independent traveller. There are a lot of brochures as you walk in the door which help you find your way. It's walking distance to upper and lower or you can catch public transport - the choice is yours. The staff were friendly enough but didn't go out of their way - they do answer your questions when you ask.

  • I really enjoyed the hostel. Location, staf, breakfast was great. Only poor part was the room, it was enough size, but could be cleaner, and the bed sheets and blankets were stained, and should definately be changed and washed more often. Shared bathrooms were very clean.

  • The best hostel I have ever been! Hostel has an excellent selection of food, drinks and afternoon snack like nuts and dry fruits. My room has TV and full size bed which is quite unexpected for hostels. Hostel is very clean and stuff are nice and very friendly.

  • Nice place to stay in Manhattan cheap and central. It's clean and the people are friendly and helpful. Self-service breakfast with a good choice in a common kitchen. Only negative point is that it's getting cold in the night in the room.

  • Rooms were far too small!! Could barely get our bags into the room. Plus we had to drag our 20kg bags up 3 flights of stairs without any assistance. There is no friendly atmosphere and couldn't meet other room mates at social events etc arranged by the hostel. Location was good but would never stay here again.
