I loved the location and all the people in the hostel. Everyone is in a state of happiness and the staff is friendly and helpful. A big plus where the lockers in the rooms. Central Park is just a few blocks away and the subway is close as well.
Friendly and helpful staff. I love the food on the main floor.
The dryer in the female's bathroom does not work. Others are working great!
Very nice activities all the days of the week, helping info-desk, large common spaces. Overall a very good hostel!
Good cafe in the building, close to subway, lots of bathrooms, nice outdoor area.
Had no sleep for 4 days the mattresses are thin, the beds creak everytime you move, the room windows dont open so you cant get fresh air in, the aircon is either hot or freezing cold! A lot of the people staying here had little consideration for others in the room and were noisy at all hours and made a mess in bathrooms without leaving it clean for others but not the hostels fault just seemd to attract young travellers who have no hostel etiquette. Great hostel poor clientele. Will pay more for hotel next time.
I enjoyed my stay there
Good tour options Good shower place 24 hour store close to the hostel
There was guy sleeping on my allocated bed when I went up to get my bed after I checked in. So I had to come down to the front desk and tell staff about it. But the staff that helped me insisted on waking up that guy until I persuaded the staff that I should just change the bed.
Kitchen decent Ping pong Good size locker in rooms
Having to pay for a locker on checkout day
Location and helpful staff. Good value for money.
The cooler was noisy. blowing and running right over a poor person's bunk. I don't know if he got much sleep.
Everything! Staff were excellent, there was a well priced cafe within the hostel, and the staff there often did BBQ nights as well! Atmosphere was awesome, free pool table and comfortable accommodation.
clean, cozy, place and kind customer service.
kind of far from down-town.
Helpfulness of Staff
Amazing hostel !! So easy to meet people. Great facilities. In a very nice area of ny. Close to the subway!
This guy in my room sores so so loudly. Was literally like sleeping next to a chainsaw
Great value for the money!
Free tours available, other offers Bathroom and showers were clean A nice location near Central Park and close-by to the subway station
Air con didn't work in our room properly - with 7 other girls it gets very stinky and gross, wasn't well ventilated They have free comedy shows but they are literally the worst comics I have ever heard, please don't go - or go, I can't stop you I don't know if it was just me but the wifi kept disconnecting from my device
2nd time at this hostel, location is brilliant (close to Central Park and subway connections) and there are lots of activities organised if you're interested in those
a/c in room was very noisy and made it hard to sleep at times
Good location (one subway stop 1 minute far, the other 5 minutes), nice and not-too-expensive bistro in the lobby, plenty of room to sit and relax, maps and an information desk available
Slow and unreliable WiFi in most areas, although the computers in the lobby (paid) have great internet connection.
Soft and stable bed. A lamp and two power points for each bed. Hot water. Fabulous Free Wifi. Nice Location.
Very comfortable bed and friendly staff/roommates. Had great times attending tours around the city organized by the hostel staff. Met lots of people at the hostel and overall had a great stay.
Sometimes the WiFi failed on me, due to too many people accessing it at the same time I believe. Some showers didn't work properly, I always had to take my time choosing which shower I would use. None of these were big issues though.
Location,service,have lot of tour and WiFi
My blanket was dirty( there was so much hair on it when I opened it to use)
