Most of my issues were with other travellers rather than the hostel, but I really didn't like how my dorm was connected to another, and people had to walk through my room to get to theirs. It made it very noisy when I was trying to sleep, especially since people would slam the doors.
This is absolutely the hostel I will choose the next time I'm in New York. The location is great, the breakfast was delicious, and they don't have dorms anywhere so they gave me a room to myself.
I think it's a bit ridiculous that you have to pay $5 for baggage storage, but other than that, no complaints. I like that they had a filtered water fountain for refilling my water bottle, and I love the free candy in the lobby. The staff were all friendly and helpful.
This was a great place to stay in NYC! I didn't spend much time here as I was out and about most of the time, but the location was very convenient. Just central enough to be close to everything, but not right smack dab in the middle of the touristy craziness. The staff was really nice, and the rooms were great.
This was one of my favourites hostels I've stayed at, and I've stayed at a lot. Jorge and the rest of the staff were excellent, and extremely helpful & welcoming! Jorge would take us out different places each night to show us nightlife in different parts of the city. The location is beautiful and very convenient - close to the Metro and a grocery store. Highly recommend this place!
Nice, clean place to stay, and in an awesome location.
Big hostel with great facilities, lovely place to stay.
It would be nice if there were a kitchen and a cozier place to hang out, but it's a fine place to stay if you're young and looking to party.
Had an awesome stay. Beautiful pool, good rooms with A/C, good prices!
Very little security, but there were no problems. Staff was absolutely wonderful.
My experience here was kind of ruined by inconsiderate roommates (not having people turn the light on in the middle of the night or barf everywhere multiple times), but other than that it was a good place to stay. Kitchen facilities were great.
Great place to stay, and the kitchen facilities were very good.
Super friendly and helpful staff, great atmosphere!
Has a ton of bug bites while I was there. Still not sure if they're from mosquitos or bed bugs, but I was always swatting away flies in my bed at night.
Great place to stay and the location on Barrington is really convenient for walking around in the downtown area and also to catch buses around the city. The hostel was clean and the staff friendly and knowledgeable.
Great, very clean hostel with good facilities. Since the place is so big, it can be hard to meet people, but really you just have to be a bit outgoing and it works out fine. Also, the staff at the desk were really friendly, but the cleaning lady I encountered was extremely rude. I slept in one morning and she yanked open my curtain unnecessarily, waking me up, and yelled at a guy who had slept in past his check-out time.

You get what you pay for here - not too bad of a place. Looks a bit rundown from the outside, but the facilities are pretty decent, and the people were friendly enough.
