  • Its a good place for the price they charge. Friendly staff, good restaurant, decent rooms. Washrooms were clean and disinfected and staff is accommodating. They have only female dorms too ! Location was a big drawback as its far up in the north while most of the activities take place in downtown. However, the subway is 3 blocks away and so its good for tourists who don't mind spending extra time and money in travelling. The heater was too strong in the room, and safes don't have locks.

  • I was extremely impressed with this hostel. It is just blocks from the metro line and Central Park. There were some great restaurants around, and we thought it was the perfect place for the weekend. The entire place was decorated in IKEA, and it was very clean. Our 4 person room included a queen sized bed and bunk beds, plus a couch, refrigerator, shelves, and two desks. We were also pleasantly surprised by the inclusion of breakfast and linens.

  • Jazz on the Park is a great place to stay overall. It can be quite the hike if you're on one of the upper floors (as there is no elevator), so don't forget anything when you leave your room! The walls are paper thin, so pack some ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. Over all though, the venue is incredible and the location couldn't be better (ie - it has easy subway access and Central Park is just steps away). I'm looking forward to going back soon!

  • I loved all the activities available (especially the comedy night!)! And thank you so much for providing WiFi and a towel...and the extra heavy blanket when it got very cold outside!

  • roaches in my room (ok for fairness, I only saw ONE roach). common area was filthy…there was garbage and food wrappers left all over the tables in the dining area when i returned late night, and the front desk clerk (just steps away) was making no efforts to leave his chair and clean up. there was no shower on my floor…i was told i could shower in the women's room one floor below my room (i'm a guy, btw). the common area was cramped and consisted of cafeteria style tables. had clean toilets tho.
