    Just ridiculously small and no bayhroom in rooms wow

    • Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities

    I booked a room with a semi-private bathroom. Given the name, I thought I might have a bathroom in my room but the bathrooms are shared with all residents on the floor. Although the bathrooms were generally clean, they need updating and look outdated. My room was also smal and very basic. On the plus side, the hostel is extremely close to Central Park which is an ideal location!

    • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities

    It is not the final price, they charged us additional membership fee which doesn’t state on web. The toilet is usually dirty and the room has poor sound proofing.

    Stayed 5 nights in Mar 2020

    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    It was really close to Central Park and we loved that. But the room was too small.

    4/5 Good

    • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities

    The only downside was the shared bathrooms, it could have been given more attention. There was a huge dead cockroach, paper towels ran out and you exit the shower stall to a wet floor with no bath mats provided. I liked that I was given the option to choose a single room for extra privacy. The front desk staff and check in was excellent though.
