  • Average facilities, good location and very friendly staff. All in all I enjoyed the stay and definitely would consider staying in a Jazz hostel for my future travels.

  • this is a very good place to be in NYC. Facilities, location, staff and breakfast are pretty good. I enjoyed the free Friday afternoon BBQ offered by the Hostel. Very nice atmosphere. Nex time in NYC, I will stay there... for sure!

  • I had two small issues. First, no ice available. I enjoy hiking and taking a cold water bottle with me when I do. Most hostels I go to have free ice, a freezer, or cold water. Jazz didn't. Also, I checked out at 11am but didn't leave until 9:30 in the evening and they charged me to store my luggage for the afternoon. It was only $4, but most hostels and hotels I've gone to provide it as a service. Other than that, it was a very good place to stay.

  • Loved my stay here! There are lockers to stow away valuables and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Jose in particular helped me with various questions I had as a first-time NYC traveler. Thanks to him I would definitely reccomend this hostel to anyone going to New York City. The atmosphere makes it easy to meet others in the lounge area. Clean and orderly facilities. I had a great time!

  • If you expect lights to work, your towels not to be missing half the time, and the doors to actually, you know, shut from the outside, don't stay here.

  • Nice atmosphere, warm reception at the desk. As for the facilities they would be better if bathrooms weren't located so far away from the dorms. Mattress quality left something to be desired and breakfast in the morning could use more protein-rich options. Overall, if one isn't too picky for quality, then it's a pass!

  • My experience at this hostel was kind of meh. I've been in better, I've been in worse. I did think the location was nice but overall, I felt I paid too much for the experience I had there.

  • Such a welcoming hostel. Everybody is very open and friendly and there's a good comfortable yet energetic vibe in the canteen. And free bagels is never a bad thing! Good for travellers coming to New York for a week as it's a great distance to beautiful central park and vast subway...
