Candy Hotel & Hostel New York Reviews
Budget hostel in the heart of Manhattan Oct 03, 2010
As budget travellers, accomodations in NYC are extremely expensive. Considering price and location, we ended up choosing Candy Hostel despite all the negative reviews that we had read.
Candy Hostel is located at the Upper West Side of Manhattan and it costs USD 98 (tax included) for a small double room with a shared bathroom. Turns out that the hostel is so decent and the room is clean as well as the shower-toilet.
This is a shared shower-toilet, so, manage your expectations on the hygiene and tolerance!
O yea, they will also clean and make up the room upon request.
Note though the Candy Hostel does not have the name sign in front of the building, however, it is not that hard to find its location at 315 W 94th St. This location is two block walking distance from the nearest subway station (red line, line 1 and 3 stop at 96th street).
Locker for left lugagge is available for $5 per use, and the receptionist does the job well although not too friendly (especially the day receptionist guy!), but we found no problem.
For a short budget stay, this hostel is recommended, given the budget and other options in Manhattan.
