  • The hostel is in an amazing location, right next to central park. There is a subway station nearby and it is walkable to many bus stops. The rooms and bathrooms are clean. It was a bit loud one of the nights. Some floors have only bathrooms for one gender, so you might have to go to another floor for a shower. Staff was friendly.

  • We booked a private 2-bed bedroom; what a disappointment ! The room was very small and old, quite dirty and smelt really bad. The bathroom on our floor was not very clean as well (let's not talk about the toilet !). We were on the fifth floor, without a lift (imagine how nice it was to carry the suitcases all the way to the top...). The wifi only works in the common room downstairs (it felt like 2003 all over again) The staff was helpful though, which is the only nice thing about this place.

  • Don't have a kitchen with utensils, only a fridge, my food got stolen more than once. Also dont have a shower for both sexes on each floor so my girlfriend had to go downstairs to shower. No elevators which can be a bit annoying when your carrying bags up 5 floors, also the keycards stopped working on average once a day. Staff are friendly and helpful if you approach them but mostly not too engaging. Location is outstanding, 30seconds to centralpark and 1min to good subway lines. Very clean+tidy

  • I was there two times. My first visit was awesome. I really like the evening programs organized by the nice guy. It was so much fun! My second visit, just for one night was not so good, I was waiting in reception for the staff to do the check in more than a hour. Also there is no kitchen and no plates, mugs etc. But the location, cleanliness and price are very good. And stuff is helpfull, nice ald let me to leave my bags in a luggage storage after check out, what helped me a lot. Thanks!

  • Staff behavior was not what i expect from people who work in a hotel/hostel. They only gave me a doorkey and told directions to room, and the way the guy on the check in desk communicated was not customer service. I felt like he is only doing what he have to do plus his behavior were rude. Also this same guy were staring at me when i was in living room.

  • We had aan amazing time at Jazz on the Park! It made our visit to NYC one to never forget. The staff is really nice, helpfull and fun, and the atmosphere is amazing, so many fun, international travellers! The balance between a place to have fun and party and a place to rest after a exhausting day of sightseeing in NY is perfect! I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a hostel in New York!

  • The floor had major water stains. The beds were not very clean. My key stopped working three times. I had to keep asking them to redo my keys (which is annoying when you are on the fourth floor).
