It was a surprise to find such a nice Hostel in NYC. Excellent room! We booked the family room and it was outstanding.

One bathroom per floor, with only one or two toilets inside, for at least 20-30 guys is not ideal.

the free breakfast was a piece of fruit, which not everyone even got.

There were mice in the room the first night we stayed, and upon complaint the night staff said it would be taken care of. that was at 2 am and by 3 am the mice were still chewing threw stuff next to the bed we were sleeping on. There were 3 mice within a trap directly under the bed by 10am the following day, still alive but incapacitated.

The day staff were very helpful upon hearing this, gave us a full refund and even set us up for free accommodation in the future.

Room Tip: Dont go here.

Spent two nights here, this place is huge, with so many amenities, e.g. pool table, TV Rooms, computers, phones...rooms are spacious with a good view, and the airconditioning really helped. Another plus is that wooden beds don't squeak when you move in the night. Lots of international people (also spending their first night in NY) make you feel at ease, the staff are really good, would definately stay here again.

I recently visited New York to attend an executive education course at Columbia University. I opted to stay at HI as it was the middle of UN General Assembly week and the hotels played their usual trick of jacking up all the prices beyond reason. HI offered a bed for $40 per night. I must say that my expectations were surpassed. The rooms were clean, safe and quiet. The staff were all extremely helpful, and the location was perfect for my course but also for getting around Manhattan with ease. In terms of value for money this was the best deal in town.
