La estancia en este hostel fue extraordinaria. El edificio es enorme, todo es muy limpio, tanto los baños, los pasillos, las habitaciones y todo en general. La ubicación esta muy bien ya que esta a una cuadra de una estación del metro. Además el personal es muy amable. Sin duda alguna la próxima vez que vaya a New York me hospedaré aquí.

Grundsätzlich hat mir dieses Hostel und v.a. die Freundlichkeit und Hilfsbereitschaft der Mitarbeiter sehr gut gefallen. Ich kann allerdings nicht verstehen, dass es keinen Gepäckraum gibt, wo man, wie in anderen Hostels, das Gepäck unentgeltlich für einige Stunden lagern kann. Fünf Dollar sind doch relativ viel, wenn man das Gepäck nach dem Check-Out noch bis um 13.00 Uhr im Hostel lassen möchte.

Nightlife & entertainment tip

Upper Broadway from about 79th St. north has many places to wile away your time. Although there might be for the slightly older (~30+) hosteler. The NYC hostel staff know more dance and music venues for the younger (~<35) hostelers.
