Really friendly staff and easy to meet people. Fine if you eat out but kitchen is quite small and can get busy. Free pancakes in the morning though!
Great location so I guess that's why it's the cost it is but they don't have much to say they have a kitchen (just a kettle, fridge and microwave with no cups to make coffee/tea) and eating out in NYC everyday can be costly.
A little disorganised. Was moved 3 times.
Excellent hostel. Friendly staff and great location.
