We're the most popular hostel in New York, as voted for by Hostelworld customers in 2011! We were also rated the #3 hostel in the USA for February 2012 here on Hostelworld.

We're located in a newly renovated classic loft-type building. There are free bedside lockers in each dorm; please bring your own padlock. Private rooms with shared bathrooms share only with the other private rooms.

We have a free breakfast, plus a free BBQ every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday in summer and autumn. There's free fondue every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday during winter and spring!

Our super clean and friendly hostel gets a lot of great guests and features free Wi-Fi and computers with internet, plus more.

We have 24hr reception and check-in, with no curfew. Hablamos español, en serio!

From here it's just 10 minutes to Union Square and 15 minutes to Times Square. The L train subway is only two blocks away.
