    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.

    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.

    Stayed here while looking for an apartment (used the awesome WeHostels app to book, http://whs.tl/165bA0n). Great hostel in a cool historical building. Fun atmosphere & great staff (say hello to Ari).

    A nice and affordable place to stay in NYC. It welcomes all age ranges from teens to adults and even families. A great place to meet up with travelers and make new friends.

    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!

    Exceeds expectations! Cleans beds, sparkling clean&modern communal bathrooms! The only thing u need to bring is a padlock and yourself... cheap rate comes w/ towels, linen, shoap, blowdry, iron, etc!

    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.

    Loved it. For a college student looking to meet people and get a deal, this was perfect. Great activities, location. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

    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

    HI has sweet bonuses--They take you out to a cool club on Saturday night and save you the cover charge--remember to dress well & bring your ID or you won't get in.

    Best room, towels and people in town. Slow but free internet! Enjoy the upper lounge, and in summer, the patio!

    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.

    Didn't find the hostellers in here all that friendly as in other hostels, although the activities put on were good. Seems commonplace to have booking errors (affected me and a couple others I spoke to

    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.

    Clean, friendly, cheap, well organized. If only checkin was before 4pm it was perfect
  • Jorge R.
    Very clean, organized, good activities. But terrible Internet conection, very bad A/C managment (wet air in the nights for example), and no hot water on some showers in the morning... Resolve this! :)

    I think the building is made of carton. When someone walks in the room it feels as an earthquake. Good hostel though.

    For godsake, let the conditioned air run overnight and put a blanket on you if you freeze. Hot in this hostel is a wet air you can't even breath!

    Try the Grand Tour. Only 10 dollars for 14 hours thru the city. Prepare to walk a lot.
