Sad face IconDisliked: 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 Although the bathrooms were generally clean, they need updating and look outdated.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!

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.

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