The room was like a sauna, it was so hot.

Clean rooms and friendly staff, but the pillows were terribly uncomfortable and the room was so hot it was like a sauna.

Low price no frills near Central Park

It's a hostel. Bring your own toiletries or pick them up from the 24 hour Duane Reade next door. Clean towels are provided at the front desk for showering. Rooms aren't the cleanest (floors specifically) but they are certainly acceptable. Roommates were all very courteous and quiet. Highly recommend this place if you need a cheap place to stay in Manhattan!

10 days in a not top ten hostel

Pros: Location
Cons: General repair of the spaces so they do not look scary; and better bed clothes and towels
The hostel is located in a nice neighborhood, 3 blocks from Central Park and close tobakeries to have breakfast and good diners. The hstel itself is far below the neighborhood standard. The common spaces, room and corridors look clean but they badly need maintenance. We paid for a King size bed and got a cabin, where one of us had to climb as if I were a young lad. The sheets were transpared and decorated with holes. Gladly the heating worked. They had WiFi that worked in the common room. This is a low, quite low budget place to sleep, and should this be known in advance.
