Stayed two nights here while visiting the city. The house is very nice and appointed with beautiful and interesting art and furniture. The room was comfortable and Rick , the owner and host made us feel right at home. He was also very helpful with hints on getting around and choosing attractions and restaurants.

This place was a nightmare no bathrooms easy acessible only on the 7th floor (1 shower and toilet) 10th floor being renovated and on the 11th floor.
we were moved 4times in one night as we had been put 'on the wrong floor' and 'shouldnt have been on that floor' which was rather worrying as the other floors housed 'long term' residents who all looked like drunks and drug addicts and homeless people. Then we were put on the floor that was being renovated and we couldn't stay there either..Next put on the 7 th floor and given a dirty room finally got in to a cleaned room.
my boyfriend was racially abused in the gym showers!
The rooms weren't very clean tiny with bunk beds and a fridge ..no room to swing a cat.
the staff were pleasant and the security guard was brilliant after watching me walk round the floors looking for showers came and rescued me and pointed me in the right direction.
location was ok seconds away from the subway.
I would not stay here go to the vanderbilt one my sister was in there while we were in the harlem hostel and hers was much better.

Room Tip: Dont stay!

If travelling on a budget this no frills hostel is a good option. When I was there the elevator did not work properly but otherwise all was well functioning. The pool I found a great extra, although I did not find the time to use it. Friendly staff. Great location. I would stay there again.

You certainly don't expect a lot from a hostel in this price segment at the big apple.

Firstly, the room was really small! The shared bathrooms couldn't give us a better impression, but seemed to be pretty much clean.

This part of the neighborhood of Harlem and the walk to the close-by tube station seem to be safer than other parts of Harlem apparently are. With the tube it takes about 10 minutes to Times Square.

Staff at the reception was nice and helpful, even while canceling the remaining nights.

All in all: This hostel offers rooms at a great value, considering the short distance to main attractions and seems to a suitable for backpackers and hard-boiled hostel guests!
