I wouldn’t recommend this hostel to anyone! Not worth the money at all! The staff is not helpful at all and very arrogant! The beds are very small and uncomfortable. The bathrooms on our floor stank of urine and hot water is obviously not included in the price, had to take a cold shower the last day... See for yourself if you will, but for that money you can defiantly find something better in NYC! Good luck

The beds and bathrooms are very, very small but clean and we didn't encounter any vermin, but this isn't a hotel to stay in if you want to do anything more than sleep in a bed and wash yourself in the bathroom. For example, it is totally beyond me why anyone would come to NYC and then sit in the grotty TV room. Unless you are an excitable group of teenagers who have never been away from their parents before and the giddy sensation of freedom will make you run up and down the corridors shrieking with delight. There are plenty of those around - expect noise at all hours.

Staff are perfectly helpful and we were not charged for wireless. Decor was miserable and crumbling but you don't pay these prices and expect Versailles. All in all, perfectly acceptable budget hotel.

From the main site (http://www.candynyc.com/):
Cinema room : disgusting
FREE soap : tiny bar in the bathroom
One block from Subway : actually 2 blocks
Free Subway and Bus maps : ran out
FREE WiFi (wireless internet) : NOT FREE - $8 dollars a day

Not a social hostel. No events during the start of the week. Hot water wasn't working. Bathtub was filthy. Room was damp and smelt. The staff NEVER have change for their own drink/food machines or computers or lockers. Computers cost money to use. Lockers are 5 dollars a day (they won't store luggage for free on your last day). Noisy rooms since the floors make noises when people are wondering through the hallways.

Bed is clean. Closest subway is an express stop on the 1,2,3 line.

im not sure if they have Bed Bugs because i didn't see any but the receptionist told me they did but they treated them humm idk. i would only recommend this hostel to a party person or someone who just doesn't care. the first couple of nights the heat wasn't working, the guy at the desk told me to check out then i was like your so rude. the bathrooms where actually clean. also they have a lot of strays that come by and hang around it made me very uncomfortable
