I've got very impressed by this hostel. Very clean, safe and the facilites are huge and well organized. Very friendly staff as well. There are lots of activites every day and night. When I come back to NYC, I will definitely stay there again.

This is a great place to stay. Dorms were nice and spacious, great cafe and facilities. Really recommend this!


Ah-mazing hostel! Only downside comparing to others HI (like boston or chicago) is that it does not include breakfast.

A fine hostel, but so huge and institutional there isn't much of an atmosphere.


Great hostel. Well maintained. But again, just as I was told, you won't get your typical hostel feel there as it's just too big. This despite managements best efforts of organizing night outs. Regardless still a good quality hostel.
