          It was good as it had arranged activities for you to meet people. However, the staff were not so friendly, I had to change rooms three times as they had other bookings and I had booked this months in advanced. It was inconvenient to keep being moved, It was cleanish. the café was good and I did have a good time. It has all the facilities you need, laundry, kitchen etc.

          Friendly Staff, Great free daily tours/activities, Good location, Lockers are allocated so that was a plus considering we were staying with 6 other foreign hosteller. Bed and linen was uncomfortable but clean, our window looked out onto the main street so was a little noisy but felt safe.
          Overall great value for money!

          Was originally going to stay at Whitehouse Hostel, Bowery. Saw the conditions of the place and bolted. Glad I changed my mind because HI Upper West Side was great to stay at. The young lady who booked me in was fantastic!!! The room was more to pay for (6 bunks so less people) but it included breakfast, towels (I managed to snag more than one) and bathroom slippers. And the same young lady was always really helpful for me.

          i loved this place, had such a cool vibe!
          they organize so much for everyone, pub crawls, tours, meet and greets, bands at the hostel etc.
          they're in a good location, a few blocks from central park, subway and bus stations right there.
          met some really awesome place, such a cool international hub.

          I cannot possibly say enough good words about my stay here. Patrick and all of the staff went way above and beyond what was expected. For such a huge place, they would be forgiven for losing some of customer service you get in smaller hostels, but not here. The attention to detail and quality of service was second to none. I only wish I could've stayed longer. Thank you everyone at HI New York

          I was a bit apprehensive visiting a big city like New York alone. There are so many things to do but they will always be better enjoyed if you have some good company. This hostel was great for providing lots of opportunities to meet others in the same situation and the city itself is great fun. I highly recommend Jerry's epic 14-hour walking tour of the city on saturdays which encompassed everything from Brooklyn to Ground Zero, the Rockefeller Centre and Times Square with all the famous sites inbetween. There were also bar crawls and comedy nights too. The hostel is clean and has good facilities - the kitchen is really useful if you want to avoid eating a burger every meal and I wish I'd discovered it earlier. The information desk was also very helpful if you need any advice. The only issue I had was the person snoring in the bunk above me but you can't blame the hostel for that!
