This was my first time in a hostel, I got placed in the wrong room but the Customer service remedied the situation immediately. Do not have high expectations...BUT, expect to literally be a walk away from all the BEST attractions, We literally had our breakfast in Central Park, and later hanged out at Times Square... like, you could too if you stayed here. If you know you will not be spending time in your room(who does? Its New York!): I highly recommend. The fact that I took time to review, shows how much of a steal this is! Have fun and stay safe!
