The location was great: just off the 86th Street Line 1 station and with Central Park just next door.
Bunk bed was hard and spartan!
It was dead cheap, the staff were reasonably polite and friendly. 24hr check-in is useful.
You get what you pay for, so don't expect good bedding or complementary anything. The lockers didn't work on the room, so no secure storage.
The location is good (close to subway and with 24/7 services nearby), Central Park, etc... and staff members always nice and helpful, it was always clean and quiet, not a noisy backpackers place... Bathrooms were always clean and not busy, 24 hours reception, clean sheets...
It looks like a pension, and common areas are not necessary accommodating, there´s a kitchen which is OK and some "lounge" area in the basement but I wouldn´t say there were cool places to hang out at... Not too much of a hostel environment...at least not the ones I´m used to, with other travelers with whom to socialize. Understanding NYC it´s an expensive city, this was still not worth it (for the kind of experience I expect in a hostel), I'd rather check other options for the same budget...
i liked the location, and the coffee
The mattress size was really little, the bathroom seat was so old, it looked dirty. They really need appropriate door locks, because the other ones had tape on them
Noisy room No towels Cheep facility
