It's pretty close to Central Park and the staff there was very helpful with questions on whereabouts of the city.

Not bad

For the location and price, not a bad stay at all. I stayed for just one night. The only real negative was the guy snoring in the bunk above me but that's somewhat expected

Great place for basic needs

Pros: Good location, nice amenities for the traveler looking for a basic and comfortable place to spend a few nights. Rooms were quiet and clean.
Cons: Sometimes the bathrooms were a mess, but the housekeeping staff was around to take care of the problem. Elevators are older and slow.
Location: The location is very accessible by subway and in a safe neighborhood. Not much to do around the area in terms of nightlife.
This hostel was a great place for short-term stays and travelers needing basic amenities. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and comfortable. I also enjoyed how group activities were organized by the hostel staff to enrich the city experience for its guests. Big pluses for the large kitchen in the basement stocked with cooking utensils and gear needed for those wanting to cook meals rather than eating out all the time. I would definitely stay here again next time I'm in NYC.
