    The price was not expensive as compare to other hostels in Manhattan especially with its location. The hostel was a bit aged. What disappointed me was the security. I stored my luggage in the office and the staff did not require me to show any...More

    Such a disappointment of a hostel. The hostel is unclean (even though you have to be out of there between 11-3 for them to clean)!! There was also no wifi, the reasoning was to promote socialising between guests, which is nice if the guest actually...More

    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,
