Positive Reviews

Terrific location in Midtown Manhattan

Guests couldn’t have been any happier with the location of the hostel. It’s fair to say it was the main reason most booked here, and they were certainly not disappointed. They loved being so close to the heart of New York, with many mentioning the proximity of Times Square and Central Park as being especially welcome.

Friendly and helpful staff

The hostel’s staff were said to be exceptionally friendly and helpful when dealing with their guests. In addition, guests mentioned that they didn’t just do their job, but were truly engaged and always up for a laugh.

Excellent security

Guests were very satisfied that their security during their stay was taken seriously. They mentioned that dorm rooms required keycard access and that the reception staff kept a close eye on who was coming and going.

Negative Reviews

Problems with the heating

Guests staying in the winter months reported problems with the heating. Many said that the dorms were on the cold side, making comfortable sleep difficult. Also, it was mentioned that the heating system was very loud, adding to the general lack of comfort at this time.

Limited communal areas

There was a lot of disappointment about the lack of communal areas. Guests had been hoping to have a social experience, where they could meet up with other travellers, perhaps over a drink, and share stories. In the end, guests mentioned that the hostel did not really have the communal areas to allow for this.

Disappointing breakfast

Guests were not impressed with the free breakfast offered by the hostel, saying it was little more than a hot drink and some toast – certainly not enough to fuel them up for a busy day in the city.
