I had a 3 day stopover in New York before heading to Latin America, and chose the Jazz on the Park Hostel. The price is very reasonable and included a typical New York bagel breakfast- delicious! Many of the hostel facilities were broken and the wifi was intermittent, similarly the keycards for the rooms frequently broke so be sure not to make any journeys to the shower in only your towel or it could be quite an embarrassing trip for a new key card to reception. The beds were squeaky and not the most comfortable but bearable for a short stay over. Make sure to bring your own padlock for the in room lockers. The hostel is quite far uptown from all the main NYC tourist attractions, yet the nearest subway station is very close to the hostel. The hostel is a good option for a budget traveller but has quite a few faults for those wanting a hostel where they can relax after a long day sightseeing.
