- location - breakfast
- shared bathroom - small room
conviently located near subway super clean staff is super friendly
I didnt like the noise level and the doors would slam shut, also the employees would go in your room to "fold" blankets but never replace towels. i didnt feel safe leaving anything unlocked. Its cold!
Attentive staff, good location right near Central Park and only a few blocks from a subway station. Comedy nights in the basement.
There was always hot water in the showers without any cut. You do not have to push the button again and again. This was perfect. :))) Everyday my bed was being made up. I felt at home as my mother was doing it. :)))
The male and female bathrooms were on different floors. Taps were disaster. You can not wash your hand properly.:(((
The atmosphere itself is cool, though they don't have wifi in the rooms, it's a good point because no-one sits in the room but goes to the lobby where you can meet a lot of interesting people. They also organize a lot of cool free events and shows
There is no elevator
I really don't know what to write here because I didn't see positive things in 4 days.
Bed is HIDEOUS!! Noise at every time of the night (screem, doors slamming loudly etc). No more coffee or muffins past 8h30 and they won't make an other one. Wi-Fi NEVER works. If you can avoid this hostel, do it.
- free toothpaste - well received - good location (near the subway)
- the roomate arrived during the night (after 2.pm) and woke up me. Then i could not sleep (whereas there is an indication in the room stipulating that roomates have to respect others between 11.pm and 7.am. There is no control about it and staff do not sufficiently warn about it). Maybe specific rooms dedicated to those who know that they will go to bed late in the night should be created. - no switch (light) near the bed so we are obliged to stand up to turn the lights up
The location. The towels were changed every day. The staff were good
The breakfast was not served consistently. The beds were uncomfortable.
The atmosphere at Jazz is very good. Lots of young good looking and fun travelers staying there. The location is ideal for those who wish to keep some distance from the crazy middle and lower Manhattan. I liked the fresh smell as you entered the place and the washrooms are kept in good shape considering the number of people staying there. The staff was helpful and polite. The ac worked well so did the shower. Do not expect too much. It is a hostel and as such Jazz management does a good job keeping it in working order.
They can improve a bit by dusting the rooms more often. The bed is not that great but if you are very tired at the end of the day, you won't notice. If you do, you are not making the most of you visit to NY. Also, you will not mind the doors banging out in the hall. However, it would be great to install smoother door springs to reduce noise. My advice...stay away from those rooms nearest to the washroom. The two most annoying things about my staying at Jazz were not necessarily the Hostel fault. One night I couldn't take a shower because a pipe had burst and the water was shut off. It could have been fixed quicker but apparently it was the plumber's fault. Next morning water was running again. The second most annoying thing has to do with people's attitude... If you use the fridge in the lounge area to keep your food or drink, be prepared. People steel your food and beverage. Lots of swipers there ready to drink your beer and eat your pizza. Make sure, if you need to use that fridge take some time to hide your yummy stuff in bags or boxes the best way you can and hope for the best. They had some adds for their stand up comedy session every Thursday and Sunday which is a good thing to have but the adds with retro vampires and zombies were a bit crippy. I am sure most people did not mind that but it would be more suitable for Halloween. I felt those images conflicted with the easy laid back atmosphere of the place. That said, I would be stay there again because the good far surpasses the not so good. Cheers.
No elevator ... 5 floors...
I love Mary Moy. She was excellent. She was professional, welcoming, knowledgeable, warm and friendly and that really made me feel better.
Rooms were clean
4 dollars fee for leaving your backpack a couple of hours after obligatory checking out is the most horrible thing I ever witnessed in a hostel
The breakfast was actually included in the price
The room was small and unpleasant, up 4 flights of stairs and the other occupant was asleep when I arrived at 10pm so I couldn't turn on the light. The lights in the female bathroom didn't work. The bed was uncomfortable and made a terrible noise everytime I moved.
every thing plus the sunday night comedy show !! the showers are sooo clean .... was perfect !!
the place was perfect
Price and staff
Stairs, noise ....
The location is fantastic such a a good value for money and the staff are very friendly specially Sergio.
Bathrooms are divided by genders but people does not respect that. Besides, you can't have any privacy there because it's all shared. I'd prefer smaller but private bathrooms as I saw in other hostels.
Great friendly staff
Mattress not very comfortable, a second blanket/ comforter would make big difference
It should be more clearly announced that (as apparently all hostels in the city) it is only for non NY state travellers
Staff was nice and cordial.
The room was really, really dirty. When I say dirty I am not talking about something left by the guy with whom I shared it (he was really nice) but dirty like: tones of dust was accumulated there for the last 200 years. The window did not keep opened and the heating was on and broken, no way to turn it off. We needed to put the trash bin at the window to keep it opened, so some fresh air could come in. It was like hell. This is my 5th time in NY and for a low budget stay I strongly suggest the hostels in Harlem, which is actually a very nice quarter, they're less expensive and cleaner.
Wifi ist 5 USD/day. Staff won´t even give you change to buy the passes at the vending machine.
The hostel is located near Central park and that is what I really like. The neighborhood is just great. It was not mentioned that the breakfast is included but since I read reviews from the guests stayed previously at the hostel, I knew there will be a breakfast. The breakfast is simple but nice.
The liquid soap was out for a couple of days in the men's shower/restroom. One of the mornings people had to wait for coffee for more than one hour.
Great place ! Outside is a really good location!!! Near to great part of Central Park!
Internet is not free and should be! There's a lot of noise, but for the price it's ok!!!
The beds are awful
