Room 604: I found the beds and pillows to be very uncomfortable. The lighting was poor. There was no lamp for reading on the bedside table. The dresser pushed right up against one bed was pretty useless except to use the dresser top for storage. The AC was good, the TV worked, the wifi was very poor. The lock on the door was not very secure. I'm not sure if the smoke alarms outside our room had batteries or not. There were only 3 bath towels. No hand towels or wash clothes. Could use more hanger

Clean and affordable place in the Upper West Side. Next to the Subway and with tons of food options and grocery stores around the corner. Very good value for money in a great part of town.


Our experience at the Morningside Inn wasn't the best. We had a money difference with the Administration, because they charged two times the booking (payed at HostelWorld Web site and again at the hotel). As far we could see, It's a common behavior... another passenger told us the same. The hostel advertises a price and charges another. The manager (Mike) didn't changed his mind and never tried to ease the communication (we are not English native speakers). Also poor wifi & no TV signal.


Nice location with many nice pubs and stuff nearby, with easy access to Central Park. a bit inconvenient if you want to get to Brooklyn or something far away, since you have to get back to the city center first, and even the closest subway is maybe a mile away, but not a bad walk as long as you're not lugging your heavy bags around. The staff were friendly, and there was a mini fridge in the room and a microwave/stove on my floor, so you could buy stuff and eat/drink there. No common areas :(


My TV was not working and nobody informed me ! they let me pay the room and i spent 3 days without TV. They should informed the customer .... but they are money oriented and far from customer oriented !

no internet, no TV, laundry machine was broken too. Some of the employees preferred to look at their smartphone instead of really trying to help. No soap provided in the bathrooms
