  • It's pretty a nice place to stay, if you plan to just sleep and be out all day. Not ideal if you want to meet other people. It's near to 125th street which is a shopping area and has a lot of history. A bell or a sign of the hostel is missing! Instead you need to get in and just knock and wait till there is someone to come and open the door! Overall an okay place to stay.

  • Shared bathrooms and kitchens were clean and not crowded. The room was small but also clean and came with two towels. It was a little cold at night, but I liked it better than over heated places. A friendly place, not too expensive, close to subway and bus to LaGuardia airport. I'd like to stay there again.

  • The upstairs shower room is best avoided as you cut your hands on the tiles when you try to open the door. The Harlem location was good, with good transport links and great staff.

  • I loved everything about La Sienna. The area was quiet and felt completely safe, even late Saturday night, the place (New York brownstone) was clean, the staff was friendly, the room was great, the dogs and cats were wonderful. La Sienna was far and away the best of the several NYplaces I have found through It is very slightly out of the way, being up on W. 123rd, but one can get to midtown on the A or the D express trains in about seven minutes. Very enthusiastically recommended.

  • We loved this hotel for it's homely atmosphere and really helpful staff. It was so clean and well taken care of! Subway and convenient stores were very close and it really made our time in N Y even better. If I ever come back to NY I will make sure that I'll stay there again. For that price I don't think you can beat it! I stayed in NYC hostels with the same price range before and you can't compare them with the La Sienna! You even get a shared kitchen with a fridge to use! Thank you La Sienna!

  • Manny and Evette are great. What a great place to stay. Felt safe there in the building and around the surrounding area. The subway is only 3 mins away and were never left alone with a few people. you can use the bus M60 to get to and from Laguardia airport. The subway will take you everywhereand you can get from 125th st to 4th st using the A train in only 15 minutes. It is always busy in the subway. Great room and board facility!! Cannot say anything better. Excellent. Jeff and Jamie from MI

  • The hostel is very charming. Yvette & Manny are very welcoming & helpful with getting around NY. Yvette was very gracious about greeting us as we arrived a little late. LaSienna is kept very clean. The room we stayed in was very cozy & comfortable. We slept like a baby. We were able to go everywhere in the city within minutes via the subway. There's a 24 hr deli on the corner that make great sandwiches for breakfast or anytime. Overall is was great experience and we will come back!

  • The whole experience was a very positive one. The staff was warm and very helpful. The common kitchen is very clean and well maintained (and well stocked with complimentary tea and snacks). It was more like I was a guest in someone's home than staying in a hotel. The environment is cozy, calm and quiet. Also, even though you're up in Harlem the D train express to downtown is very close by. It's also very easy to get to and from LGA from here on public transit. Would definitely come back again.
