International Student Center New York Reviews
Manhattan hostel with a great location Jun 29, 2011
It's a quintessential new york brownhouse in a quite, leafy neighborhood, located in new york's best neighborhood - upper west side (which is better than upper east side, in my opinion). It's also a short walk to the central park, which is great if you plan on jogging central park as it's a popular place to jog for locals. The nearest subway station along central park west is a short walk from the hostel.
the only thing i did not like about this hostel was inadequate ensuite bathroom, especially in the morning when everybody is rushing to use it. They should have separated the toilet area and the shower area to have a more efficient bathroom set up. I remember i had to wait more than a hour to take a shower here. I also did not like the absence of lockers; although the nice lady at the office will offer to take your valuables for safekeeping.
overall, i still think this hostel has alot more positives than negatives. I would definitely stay here again just because of the excellent location.
