    Probably the best hostel in NY. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, breakfast is great, Wifi connection works and you get first class service. Tips: get a map from the information desk.

    One of the most expensive hostels I have been to from HI, but of course, Manhattan is expensive so it's great. You can't beat the place: it's really awesome, comfortable, good breakfasts + location!

    Very big hostel. Good location. Lot of common areas and activities. Kitchen not that good for me, fridges messy of bags. And there are so many people that need more cleaning. Very kind people

    Super awesome hostel. Go in the summer and take advantage of their out door space. Lots of cool events: comedy, pub crawls, club night, live music. Some events are even sponsored by us (plug plug). Read more

    Amazing. I was expecting some dismal cheap moldy hostel, and was totally impressed by this place. Bathrooms were spotless, rooms were cosy, and entire vibe of hostel is young and cool.

    Great price for being NYC. Its in a very centric area with metro just 1 block away. Tip: the elevator is slow, press the close door botton for a quicker ride, or better take the stairs!

    They market it as on the UpperWestSide. don't fall for it! Still, it's like having a mall inside a building. a cafe, pool table, wifi area, tv lounge and communal showers. does attract sexy travelers.

    At first the hostel seems nice but be warned it is pricey I paid $59 a night and it is in a dodgy area with a VERY high crime rate. Make sure to lock your valuables in the locker $5 for 24 hours

    I don't recommend it. I made a reservation for a 6bed female and when I arrived they didn't have any bed for me. I stayed in a mixed room. The hostel is all in carpet, which makes it smells bad.

    If you get the membership, and make your reservation on-line they give you a free day--at least that's what the front desk girl told me the other day.
