Nice hostel, close to metro in a quiet neighborhood. Super friendly staff. Only thing is that there are no locks on the room door, so anyone can walk in and no elevator (they have 3 floors with narrow stairs) No staff from 11pm till 8am but you get a key if you like, so no curfew.

Great location on Manhattan. Super friendly staff. Nice area. Cute living room. Rooms are very spacious. Not a big fan of making your own bed.

For the location the price is okay, however the place is lacking in overall atmosphere and facilities. Not a very friendly hostel. Beds were also very uncomfortable. Not enough common bathrooms for the amount of people. I also feel for the price they should at least offer some sort of free breakfast. There are two subway stations very close which make it perfect position for getting around. Overall, just a place to rest your head while out exploring New York.

Good location! Best hostel price in Manhattan but wifi doesn't work properly and the hostel is not clean at all. I recommend it for short stays.

If you're looking for an old school hostel in a safe neighborhood, this is the place. This hostel doesn't have the fancy amenities of some of the newer big city hostels (like bed lamps, outlets in each bunk, complimentary breakfast, etc.), but it had warm and clean dorm rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, and a great location. The hostel is 1/2 block from an entrance to the C train, which is convenient for getting all around Manhattan, in a quiet and safe neighborhood by Central Park.

The location is really good but the dorms beds are old and hard to climb. There is no other furniture in the rooms (side-tables, for example) and only two bathrooms per floor. Overall, I would not recommend the hostel for a stay longer than a couple of days. The common room area is very well decorated and comfortable. The kitchen is also well stocked with utensils and plates, etc.

The staff were great, although the social atmosphere was not so good due to the mix of people staying, but did have nice common room space
