    Fabulous

    This hostel was awesome! The lounge was comfy and had lots of seating and two full fridges for guest use. I felt very safe as a solo female traveller. I love that you get your own key to come and go at any time! Very convenient. It’s also located right by Central Park and the subway to anywhere else you may want to visit! Would definitely recommend. Only complaint is that the wifi is only available on main floor and lounge.

    Fabulous

    14 Nov 2018
    Staff were very welcoming when I arrived. I stayed on the top floor (women only) with 2 shared bathrooms. No problems with queuing/waiting at any point. There’s a lounge/kitchen/social area in the basement which is very cool and spacious - note this is the only place to get WiFi in the hostel though! Recommend you bring a long phone cable or battery pack as there aren’t many plugs in the rooms and this is compensated by short extension leads! Great place though for NY short stay!

    Very Good

    12 Nov 2018
    Really great location. Could have been a little bit cleaner. There were no rules about when you should be silent or when to leave to lights off. So sometimes it would get annoying when you’re trying to sleep. It’s an extra plus that the entire 4th floor was females only.
