          Just know what to expect and you’ll enjoy your time.”

          I stayed at the Central Park West hostel for quite some time. I was here filming a tv show for work. I went in with the knowledge that because of coronavirus the hostel was unable to keep the housekeeping staff on board. They provide fresh linens and towels But don’t expect the rooms to be that thoroughly cleaned. Nothing terrible, just obviously rushed. But what do you expect from one person? The front desk person Sam is probably the best customer service agent they have. He’s friendly and accommodating and the most helpful of the bunch. The rest of the crew is pretty silent, but not bad either. For 20-30 a night in NYC.... In a very posh area.... give me a break with all these terrible reviews. You see a good business struggling and you tear them a new one? Just heed my review and just know what to expect. Maybe bring some wipes or cleaning spray. I know the housekeeping person wouldn’t mind the help and it’s the least you can do for such an amazing rate on a private room in Manhattan. The location is amazing. Walking distance to both Central and Riverside Parks. I never spent much time in anyways.

          Well I was bargain shopping for places to stay. I got a discount and I couldnt have been happier for the price. Staff is super nice, there's free coffee, my room had a desk, dresser and a closet. I didn't need much, this was a nice hostel with spacious rooms in a good location.

          Worth Tracking To”

          I enjoyed my trip. The cons about the trip The windows do not lock, there are miniature roaches in the room, the beds are very lumpy but comfortable but uncomfortable. They don't have bed bug covers on the pillowcases or bed. My room did not get cleaned while I was there, there were people feeding animals off of plates, and the place needed some work. The pros Amazing location, right next to the park right next to the water, friendly atmosphere, safe environment, walking distance from a walk-in clinic CVS Dunkin donuts consignment shop whole foods supermarket bookstore restaurants Subway. A lot to do at night and not that close to downtown Manhattan but three stops away on the subway. Would I recommend this place 2 people yes despite the roaches and people using the plates to feed animals. Otherwise I will travel to be there again. It's a must-see for the price good prices.

          You get what you pay for.”

          You get a good price, if you book far enough in advance. It's not too expensive, but don't expect much. The beds are not very comfortable. The place could use a good cleaning, especially the rest rooms. They also need to stock up the rest rooms with toilet tissue more often. Some rooms have a sink in them. Some rooms don't have an air conditioner. Check in and out are easy. The hostel is in a nice area with plenty of places to eat and to buy things you may need, and it's close to transportation.

          (+) - Great location. It is near the metro station, bus stop, convenience store (CVS), and bank. - The room is clean and the air conditioner is cool. - The beds are ok. We had a good night sleep. - There is drinking water in the kitchen. We can cook our food there or make tea. - The area is ok. It’s pretty quiet at night so my little one can sleep well. (-) The receptionist was very late. We arrived at 3pm for check-in and the receptionist was not there. We were very tired and wanted to rest but have to waiting until around 6pm. Luckily the room was ready and clean when we checked-in.

          Location is great. Be prepared to deal with awesome staff. No locks on the toilet or shower and was mentioned to maintenance but there response was they didnt want to pay the hefty price to change the lock. Turned the heater on every night and the piping is old so makes loud constant banging noises. Room was rediculously hot and heater still on at 10am next day. Went and asked to turn it off or lower it and was laughed at by the staff. Got no sleep each night it was on due to the banging of pipes. Waited 2 hrs at reception at 2am to check in.

          Difficult employees; substandard hostel”

          Apart from the great location of this place, the hostel doesn't really offer much to its guests. The front desk employees were very difficult to talk to; they only checked me in after TWO HOURS! They kept saying Agoda sent wrong information regarding my fully paid booking and told me to iron out the kinks myself. Two hours later, front desk admitted that someone from their end made the mistake but didn't even bother to apologize. The room was old. The paint job needs to be redone. The tiles in the bathroom needs serious replacing. The chairs are moldy. The cabinet was lopsided. There was also no sink, and basic toiletries provided. The elevator was cramped. Agoda should consider removing this place on their site. What terrible hotel management service.

          Good things : - Near subway. - The receptionist is friendly and helpful. Bad things : - I booked a room with a large bed (as I saw in the picture and the info shown in agoda website), but agoda sent the information to the hostel as I booked a room with a dormitory bed. - The hostel is very old, not clean and uncomfortable. - The window has no glass and cannot be locked. - I am not sure what noise is very loud all night like someone hits the steel or steel sadder. That noise made me wake up all night.

          I used '2-person' to book one room, but just got a bed, then the staff just told us to pay for another bed without asking if there's any misunderstanding. Thus, I pay total US$150 for one room one night with independent bathroom but it seems malfunction... It's was a bad experience and hope there's no one be cheated again.

          I've stayed here several times because it is inexpensive and close to where I need to go, but they need to improve on several things. This time they put me in a room with an air conditioner that was not cooling the room and there were no curtains on the window. The pillow was stained with sweat, but at least the sheets were clean. Also, there was no toilet tissue in the restrooms again.

          Stayed 2 nights in August 2019

          Acceptable”

          The rooms were unhygienic and the washroom was way to small. The cleanliness was a big time concern. I had to wait for a long time to check-in even after the official check-in time as there was nobody at the reception. There were no curtains in the room, so, the room was like a public place. It's a matter of shame that such hotels/hostels are still listed. I wish I could get a refund for this pathetic experience.
