Very clean hostel, which is close to the subway on the upper west side. I had a problem with air con in the middle of the night and the staff moved me room which was much appreciated.
This place is an absolute rip off. People arrive to be told they don't have beds but they can sleep in hammocks despite making bookings through Hostelworld, after booking you are told you need to pay in full but they don't accept credit cards so you have to use PayPal and the 6% fee for the hostel gets added to your bill. The place smells of damp, the bathrooms are disgusting and despite saying there is power with each bed most don't work.
This was one of the friendliest hostels I have stayed in. The staff are terrific and the owner cooked dinner for us and made an effort to know everyone. I would definitely recommend this hostel, particularly if you are travelling alone.
Strange at first that rooms don't lock but the lockers are excellent. The male staff are lovely but the female was a little rude.
