The hostel is expensive, but you're in upper west Manhattan so it's expected. the staff are really helpful, and the facilities are awesome and plentiful. Sometimes you did have to wait for showers, but there are plenty of bathrooms on other floors if you don't want to wait. Only downsides are: Wi-Fi was pretty bad when the hostel was full. Bandwidth might need to be increased to accommodate all the guests, and the lack of free activities with some outings costing $10. But once again, it is NYC.
Really nice hostel with super cute rooms and creaky floors. Staff were friendly and helpful, and the location was just 5 mins away from a bunch of restaurants, etc. Only downside was that they were often out of hot water with the showers!
The place was very quiet, but it was in a good location, being within walking distance to tram stops, old sacramento, and the capitol building. A few bathrooms and the fridge were out of order when we were there, but since it wasn't busy, it didn't really affect anything. Staff were helpful, albeit quiet. Good kitchen and games/entertainment room, but there really isn't much to do in sac. Gluten free breakfast options would be a nice touch! Thanks HI!
The female 8-bed dorm was very clean, with its own shower, sink and toilet with soap/shampoo; very convenient. Each bed had 2 outlets and a light too, but there were no curtains around the beds, so if someone didn't turn off their light, it was very annoying. The location of the hostel was alright. It's about a 7-10 minute walk to a metro station, but it was very close to the pagoda, shrine, and streets of markets. Not much night life - stay in Shibuya for that. Will recommend this place.
The hostel was very close to the Peace Park/A-bomb dome, and a tram stop, which was very convenient. The female Japanese style dorm had VERY comfortable beds - I slept like a log. The rooms also had a small locker next to each bed. Free tea and coffee in the kitchen, and a small common area to have a chat. The only down side was that there wasn't a lot of space in the room for bags, so i slept with it at my feet. You can put it in the storage room downstairs, but it wasn't awfully convenient.
There wasn't any wifi in the rooms. This was kind of annoying.
The place was right next to the metro station and a Godiva chocolate factory outlet. It was a good place to stay with a kitchen and a bar downstairs. There wasn't a lot going on in the winter, but it was ok. It was good to meet people in the rooms, which were clean.
The place was really cool! It was a bit quiet in the summer, but I ended up just chilling around the fire with the staff members anyway. We grabbed a guitar and started jamming, and it was really neat. The location is a 20 minute tram ride from Den Haag city centre, but the trams come regularly. Just make sure to be back before the trams stop running (around 1am). Scheveningen is right next to the beach, so that was really nice. Overall, a really enjoyable location!
Wifi was poor and often kept disconnecting. There were no lockers in the rooms, and you had to go downstairs to use them. The rooms were clean, but it took them a while to clean them. When i first arrived, the room wasn't even ready yet with beer cans and peoples things everywhere. But it was a place to sleep, and the showers were good.
Great facilities and atmosphere with the bar downstairs. Staff were VERY rude and some had a really bad attitude, which was a downside of the stay. Location is about a 10-15 minute walk from the City centre.
The location of the entrance is hard to find, and a bit creepy at night, but other than that, it was good.
