    The front desk staff was friendly upon check in and check out.

    Upon my arrival, the police were there investigating a theft. It didn't take long for me to feel uncomfortable staying there. I guess you get what you pay for.

    The location is excellent and the staff friendly and helpful. The bunk beds were quite comfy as well. Overall, the hostel is great value for money.

    The bathrooms were not particularly clean.

    Simple and affordable. It's NYC and for that money it is not easy to find a decent place to sleep. That does it. Few night while overseeing the city is a good fit.

    Nothing about the place is good, they changed my reservation to put me up in a room with 1 bed shared even though I reserved originally with me and a guest. Then they kicked me out for complaints.

    They are the most rude staff ever!!!
