Nice hostel, but explain about hot water system
I only gave a mediocre score for comfort level because when I first arrived the room was very cold, and a young lady who had stayed in the room for a week was sick and said she felt like she had gotten sick because of staying in such a cold room all week. I told her the temperature really was intolerable and that she should report it to the staff, which she then did. No one came immediately to fix the situation, but I must say that by the time I returned much later that night that the room temperature had improved significantly -- it was not really warm, but it was no longer freezing either, and was basically comfortable on the slightly cooler side. On the other hand, even though the room had ten beds it was at all not crowded because the room was very large and spacious, and there is sufficient room between beds to not feel cramped when packing/unpacking.

See you in NYC
Wonderful cheap way to stay in Manhattan! I was thoroughly pleased with my stay of 4 days. The rooms were clean, people were friendly, food in the cafeteria was good. I have no complaints, would stay there again anytime I'm in NYC.

The location is good but not great- you are near a few different subway stops that go right into the center (I’d say about 25 minuets away). Everything was super clean and the staff was helpful and friendly. The mattress could have been better...

Back in the hood
Was in town for the night to see a concert. Just needed a safe place to rest my head and move on the next mourning. This place fit the billed in spades. Also I happen happen to grow up on weekends just around the corner from here in the 60's and 70's. Nice to be in the neighborhood again after all these years.

Good value
It's a hostel. Very clean. Nice staff. Great place to sleep with no frills. If you don't mind sharing and minor noises don't bother you.
