    It locates near everything

    I went there and found out that there is no reservation on the site, so I had to stay in a room which I hadn't booked for. The room looked like it is not done with the renovation yet. The bathrooms are awful... I don't like being there and have no plan to be there ever again

    The bed was as hard as asphalt. Couldn't sleep because of it. Elevator the size of a tiny closet, television had no power cord or cables so no tv. Radiator for lack of heat. The whole experience was horrible.

    Fabulous

    Its actually not a hotel but a hostel dormitory type with private rooms..we got one and it's really spacious with a private bathroom.towels are readily available anytime ..bagels or muffin with coffee or tea is a bonus for that cheap price ..us$330 for 4 nights is really awesome..tax included..the metro bus is nearby which can take you to different tourist spots...restaurants and groceries are very nearby..the heater works well..the lounge serves as our resting area during the night after checking out in the morning while waiting for the trip back home..we were charged for $4 only for two lugages instead of double...the kitchen is equipped with basic stuff so you can actually cook,though we did not......we stayed in room 209..will definitely be coming back .

    The carpet in the room needs some cleaning. Brochures and flyers for tourists are very limited..weird elevator! But it still takes u on the right floor...very small hallways..not a pretty site to take pictures from outside the main door ..black plastic garbages around...but u get all these for a cheap room price..it actually is not a big deal but it may be improved ....thanks jazz !

    I traveled alone and stayed 4 nights at this Hostel. Positive things: - Very clean bathroom - Excellent location - Cheap - Free towels

    What I didn't like: - Poor breakfast (only bagels) - Beds were making A LOT of noise!!! - The walls were thin and you could hear everything! - beds were small - Did not offer lockers - Had to pay for Wi-Fi

    Superb

    The hostel is very fairly priced and seemed updated. The bathrooms were huge with large glass showers. The kitchen was nice and well equipped and the lounge was very comfortable with a large tv, so if i didn't feel like going out i could relax down there. After spending the night at the airport, this hostel felt like a palace. Great stay :-)

    The plumbing is very old and noisy and i would be woken up several times a night to a clanking sound that lasted several minutes.

    Very good

    Very good value for money. The place seemed recently renovated. Excellent location in upper west side, close to subway & Central Park. Neighborhood looked safe. No weirdos/hobos in the hostel. A perfect choice for a short stay in Manhattan if you're not too demanding on comfort and services.

    Old building located on Amsterdam Av, so it's very noisy. Plumbing also noisy. Breakfast could be improved (only coffee & muffins) then again fooding is not the purpose of this type of establishment.

    Fabulous

    Очень удобно, расположение на Манхэттене, буквально в двух кварталах от Тайм Сквер! еще плюс, что если твое время заканчивается в 11 a.m. то можно оставить свой багаж у них и ходить по городу хоть до ночи)))

    地下鉄の駅がすぐで良かった。24時間営業のpharmacyが近く、共用スペースには無料のコーヒーの提供もあり割と便利

    エレベーターやトイレなどが年代を感じて少し不安だった。使い勝手は普通

    Rien: à mon arrivée à l'hôtel, on a simplement refusé de me laisser entrer, sous prétexte que 1) il n'y avait pas de réservation à mon nom, 2) que l'hôtel avait changé de propriétaire (je n'en ai jamais été informée) et 3) que l'hôtel était fermé par décision municipale - tout cela en donnant des clés à la douzaine de touristes arrivés quelques minutes avant moi...

    Réception scandaleuse, hygiène pitoyable: on m'a proposé une chambre pour une nuit en dépannage: cafards dans la chambre, serviettes hygiéniques usagée dans la salle de bains, etc: n'y allez pas!!!

    Very good

    As meninas que trabalham na recepção são incríveis: sempre simpáticas e dispostas a resolver problemas. A localização é ótima: próxima ao metrô e numa área repleta de opções de alimentação pra todos os gostos e bolsos.

    Há muitos quartos, mas poucos banheiros por andar... isso é um pouco problemático... em determinados horários a fila é inevitável e o banheiro acaba não ficando tão limpo, mas é administrável.

    地点非常好, 离地铁很近,也很安全。 总体来说, 算干净舒适。

    每层只有一个洗手间兼浴室。
