This place was the worst place I had stayed in New York when travelling, without a doubt. I booked because the pictures didn't look too bad, and the location was also okay, but it did not live up to expectations at all. I believe it is a non-smoking hostel, but everywhere smelt of cigarette smoke even the lounge downstairs smelt... More

Good location 1 block from subway and 3 blocks to Central Park. Hostel only has 2 bed dorms which I liked as I'm not a fan of big dorms. However this is also a residential building with locals living there. There is no sign on the hostel door or street to let you knew your in the right place. Some... More

Hostel is located in a good area near the subway. It is probably the only advantage. The rooms are small, a garbage of the rooms take away once a week, the rooms are not clean. My room was clogged sink with water. There is a common kitchen on the ground floor. Everything looks very dirty and poorly maintained. Hostel is... More

It was good experience to stay there. Although some places were dirty (ex. few toilets) due to bad mannered customers, the clerks were so kind, and most of all the people staying there were amazing and excellent. And the location!! The location was perfect. You can go to the 86th st ave Station in 5 min. I appreciated the services,... More

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
