Fresh Hostel New York City Reviews
Okay enough hostel Aug 07, 2008
We visited the place when it still used the name Continental Hostel. We stayed here Aug. 7 thru Aug 15, 2008 and Aug. 28 thru Aug. 29, 2008. The price is fairly cheap for New York, it cost us about 35 euros for a double bed-room (not shared). (A price in the mid-range in other places...)
The location is a nice neighborhood in the upper west side good with the subway just two blocks walk, which gets you downtown in no-time, and a small park the other way. In walking-distance there also are some places you can get some good food (including a bakery and a ecological food-restaurant), a star-bucks and a small supermarket (all on Broadway).
The hostel is just a place to stay, no fancy stuff. We had no problems checking in. (We made our reservation through Expedia) The rooms are fair (at least the doubles). Not all are as good, as we heard from fellow-guests, complaining about cockroaches and I doubt about seeing one run across our room, but further no problems at all. The first room we got had a TV and a broken-down air-co. Since there was a heat-wave going on, the service-guy agreed with us it was no living and we got another room.
The beds were okay, and got changed about 1/2 times during our stay.
We didn't get around to checking out the hang-out in the basement, so no judgement on that.
Overall a fairly cheap option if you stay in New York and an option if you're lucky with the room and don't mind some short-comings.
