10/10 Exceptional

Great location!
It was what I was expecting from a hostel. One thing that surprised me was there were no blankets on the beds, only sheets. But the location was EXCELLENT! Two blocks from the subway and just a few blocks from Central Park.

2/10 Poor

First gave me a room with a door that doesn't shut all the way (and therefore cannot lock). Second room had no AC. Third room already had two people in it. Front staff was confused too about the whole situation and was trying to help me out but there was nothing he could do. Asked for a full refund through expedia but the manager declined. Manager never was there when all this was going on, and front staff couldn't even get a hold of the manager. Horrible management.
