Excellent hostel! The location is very good and the atmosphere in the hostel very homelike. Would definitely stay here again!
This is a great hostel. Perfect location in midtown, just a 10 minute pleasant walk to places like the Empire State Building- so it's perfect for some sightseeing in Manhattan. Everything was perfect, the only recommendation that I would make is for locks to be rentable from the front desk for the boxes in the room. There were 4 big wooden boxes which could be locked in the dorm room if you had a lock with you. Would just be nice to have the option, but it's not a must!
The hostel is really cool and the staff are absolutely friendly. The problem is: the is just one laundry and one dryer. Besides that, there is not elevator. So, if you are carrying a heavy piece of luggage I suggest you to be prepared to face two floors of stairs! :P
Expensive - shared dorm room bed cost me approx $89 for a night. Staff claimed the deposit made on Hostel World went to Hostel World and didn't contribute to the cost of the room. Good location, facilities and clean - however room was stifling hot and struggled to sleep. Some staff were great others seemed to be struggling to find a reason to live. I've been in better hostels but certainly been in a lot worse. Ok place to stay i guess.
