The atmosphere was great. The hostel is very very clean and feels like your staying in a hotel. Each hostel has a private bathroom which is a big deal! Staff was kind and friendly, but Wifi would go out sometimes and some staff members didn't know what to do. The hostel is quiet far away from the nearest metro, You will have to wait on the bus to take you there. Nice size kitchen area. You will get no cellphone reception if you stay on the first floor of the hostel. Great experience overall.

We stayed here for 4 nights and really enjoyed our stay here. The main reason we stayed here was because it had good reviews and was reasonable for its location to Manhattan. The staff were extremely helpful through email prior to our arrival and also whilst we were there. The hostel has good wifi that can be connected to whilst in your bed. Great value for money, not far from the subway, reliable wifi and a great diner next door. Only shame is that there isn't many power outlets in the room.

It's a place to relax , sleep and shower after you've been sightseeing, nothing more or less.

I enjoyed my stay at this hostel, great value for money. Clean rooms, good beds, and 30 minutes away from Times Square. I recommend this place to anyone who is traveling on a budget.

I really like it. The only problem is that it is a little bit too far from Manhatan. But it is a very good hostel!

I've always had the wrong impression about hostels until I stayed at Westway, now it's one big thumbs-up.

Place is clean but located far from the downtown. Commuting is difficult. The rooms are clean but adjoining the road with a lot of traffic noise in the room. Kitchen has very basic amenities. Also no social activities for the residents to interact. Also no stores for basic necessities present around the place.

The location is very far - you have to take a bus to the subway, and you're far away from the sights. It was worth it for me to save money and I would just spend the full day in the city. Some of the staff members seem a little out of it / slow. It's also very clean and I was impressed that they cleaned the bathrooms/sheets most (every?) day.

Was about 20min walk from metro, would like to have been closer but overall good experience. Roommates were not the best but had no control over that.

The hostel is generally very clean and linens and towels are changed everyday. The staff seems sometimes bored or not longing to give you information; there is not the atmosphere you would expect in a travellers' hostel. It is about 45 minutes far from Manhattan, but the bus station is right in front of the building. The parking lot has 24 hrs security, but anyone can enter the hostel and the kitchen.

Great hostel for staying in NYC. Found this place to be one of the cheaper hostel, but they don't skimp out on service. The location is a bit far from the nearest train station, but that's the tradeoff.
