What travellers think
I liked meeting other guests from different countries. I love the improvements to the hostel bathrooms, kitchen, lounge areas. I was treated kindly by some staff and not so kindly by others. I was hopeful that the cooling system in my room would be corrected and it wasn't, so I swittched rooms on last night and was pleased my bags were held at no charge and room changed to was much cooler and I could sleep better due to this. I wish the cost for staying the night was not as high as it is.

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.
