  • The hostel is poorly laid out. There are no comfortable areas to hang out. A few tables and chairs in a large, cold room that also has two very smelly sofas in it. The management is absolutely terrible. There is often nobody manning the front desk. We had problems with our reservation which they blamed on us and we had to meet the cost. They do not even provide basic materials such as knives and forks. Maids start cleaning at 9am in the morning. I want to have a shower at this time and can't.

  • The hostel was great and very close to the subway, it only lacked a kitchen with appliances in my opinion. I had an amazing time, Omar made sure there were always fin sctivities and that you would meet people. I would definetely stay again.

  • Like it a lot for its convenience and value for money except for all the door slamming and occasional pipe clanging but you get used to it after a while. Overall thumbs up.

  • Overall you want a cheap place to stay in NY. This is what you get. HOWEVER, their heaters kept running on super hight and there was no way to turn them off. The lady at the frontdesk tried to tell me that's what central heat is all about. Obviously, she does not know what central heat means. So, even with a cracked window and the waste of all that heat, I could only try to sleep sprinkling water on me at night, cause I was burning up. Horrible night after a long flight. Overall very loud as wel

  • The Hostel has no kitchen at all an even a single dish. If you want to drink something, there is no cup. Besides, the Hostel doesn't serve any breakfast while all other Hostels do. Using the computer is not for free and that sucks. When I booked this hoste on line I had already paid some amount in the form of deposit and supposed to have paid less on arrival. But on arrival I had to pay the same amount of money as if I didn't deposit. So, they asked me to pay more than I was supposed to.

  • Its located on the upper west side only a few steps away from central park, which is awesome. The next bus stop & subway station are only 2-3 blocks away. No breakfast is offered, but there are some grocery stores near by and that way you might end up eating in the park which is really nice. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean & plain, the area around is quiet. For showering I had to go one floor up, for toillet one down (only female facilites on my floor).

  • It was a bad experience, the Hostel is far from everything that matters, has no elevator, several floors confused and without clear communication. Not recommend to anyone.
