We stayed for 3 nights. Te staff are really helpful and friendly and the pool and gym great. It is slightly lacking in any communal area such as a nice lounge/ cafe. The location is near the tube and an easy walk from 125th and 116th street where there are nice bars and resturants. It's the perfect place for a cheap clean place to stay to do all the sights of NYC. The bathrooms of 10th floor are lovely- rooms are a little small but fine.


No toilet paper for several days. No hangers on arrival, but cleaning woman brought some the next day. Unfortunately I had to pay for a double room, because few singles are available.


I spent 3 nights at this hostel, and I must say that I was surprised. The staff person who check us in was great, the accommodations clean and organized, we had TV in the room and a little refrigerator. The lobby has a little shop when you can buy food and coffee (and you win a $5 voucher to spend there). great time. The location is a little far from downtown, but there's a subway station in the next corner.
