I had stayed her previously when it was PINK. Following a change of ownership it has gone down hill at a rapid pace of knots. The room was fine, clean but not lockers however the showers were minging. I do expect to be flexible around the use of the showers so not a problem it they are in use. Unable...

This is about the cheapest place you'll find in NYC. So my expectations weren't very high. And it was indeed pretty bad. And I am ex-military, so I'm used to staying in tents etc. I'd actually prefer my tent over this hostel. It was clean (well, they cleaned it.. Wasn't very clean though), people were friendly. Not very helpful but...

Just thought I'd add my opinion to the other reviews on the site... Having read the previous entries I was really worried about staying here and was looking for other options. However, in my opinion the hostel is perfectly adequate - it's not great, but I wouldn't go out of my way to avoid it either. My room / bed...

We got f'd about with rooms on the first night. Average service. Cockroach in the bathroom. Beds are lumpy. Wifi sucks. No room in fridge and there's no freezer. No pool table (which the site said there was), the "common room" is a dungeon, won't have towels provided unless you ask, the cafe is a weak sink and a toaster....

The hostel has really good location nearby subway with some good features of lounge area, internet, clean rooms, newer beds and bathrooms. The disappointments are: 1) clueless, unhelpful & rude management/staff that has constant turnover and doesn't care about your experience; 2) total lack of security in a building and for your possessions--laptops are stolen-- loads of permanent and sketchy...

Pretty bad hostel. Most of the other reviews are accurate. Even though it is NY, it is still overpriced. My room was clean, but thats about it. Washrooms always dirty and not enough to accomodate all the guests. the power was out in the washrooms for 2 days and one was out of service for a day or 2, making...

One month before my stay, I booked 7 nights at Jazz on Amsterdam Avenue Hostel. I did it through Travellerspoint and paid my 10% deposit + booking fees. Travellerspoint confirmed. Then, I have sent an e-mail directly to the hostel to get the confirmation from them also. I received even my confirmation number from the hostel and everything (I just...

This hostel sounded as if it would be great but nothing could be further from the truth. The door to my room didn't lock, there were NO lockers in the rooms...any of them, and the door to the basement was open most of the day so anyone from the street could of come into my room and taken my stuff....

This hostel has great potential - and it is apparently in the middle of renovations. However, when I booked they were not forthcoming about this. So...the kitchen was closed, the downstairs was under construction, a whole bunch of the rooms had "closed by the board of health" signs on them and the furniture was, shall we say, eclectic. Our room...

I booked into the hostel in January and received a confirmation email at the time. We are due to fly out tomorrow. Yesterday I received an email from Jazz on the Park (not Jazz on Amsterdam who I'd originally made the reservation with) to confirm my booking. This was not only a different hostel but one night less than we...

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.
