This was up to the usual HI standard in that it was clean and tidy, although the bathooms suffered and weren't well maintained. Dorms however were nice and reasonably quiet. I stayed in a 12 bed dorm and slept well. Individual lights for each bunk top and bottom are genius. Location is great and staff are helpful when it comes to checking out activities andevents in he area. It is however a huge place and therefore loses any atmosphere. It is very functional but lacks character. :p

A large unfriendly hostel in a good location just near Upper West side, near Central Park ( although go thru some dodgy areas to get to Central Park). Not recommended if travelling alone as difficult to meet people here.

I stayed here in August of 2004. This is a very large hostel just south of Harlem on the Upper West Side. It is pretty clean, but it feels like a large dorm that was never decorated. The rooms are a bit cramped with bunk beds, I stayed in an 6 bed room. The beds were alright, not horrible, not great. They were however horribly noisy, I would recommend an upper bunk if you can manage it. Everyone sleeping on the bottom bunks felt like the top bunk was going to collapse on them from the amount of noise! Staff was helpful, but not overly friendly. All in all it was an OK hostel. Nothing spectacular, but certainly not a bad place.
