  • The hostel is very clean. Good location, right next to the subway station. The staff was friendly, but not the friendliest I've ever seen, some of them seemed to be impatient when I asked information about the city. The hostel activities can be improved too in order to get the guests to know each other. Good atmosphere. The food was excellent, but nothing is included in the price. I had an awesome stay and would stay there again.

  • I've stayed in several hostels in Europe and I like this one best. Excellent location near the park on upper west side and near subway. Very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. Supurb kitchen facilities. Hostel staff and guests prepared a fine Thanksgiving lunch. Staff arranged a group outing to Macy's parade. Pool table, giant TV and several gathering rooms. Fair price for NYC. Great security with electronic door keys. Highly reccommend and I will stay here again.

  • It is 3 blocks from Central Park so that's amazing - you can just walk over there and you don't have to worry about getting a cab. The facilities were very clean, there are HUGE lockers that fit your luggage, and there is a plug next to your bed in case you need to charge anything at night. ONLY complaint - it is right next door to the projects so safety is something you need to stay constantly aware of at night if you're walking outside. Once you're inside though you are 100% safe!!
