I am sitting here haven't showered for 3 nights. Why? As the front desk would tell you, "Things happen...". No hot water for 3 days! And it is late October! Seriously? Oh! By the way, this is not the first time when there is no hot water. Realistically speaking, probably the fourth time. Well, this is not the only thing....

First the PROBLEM and then the rest: I paid in advance (with fees for cleaning and all) around $1.900 dolars for 1 month. I also had to pay in advance $1.600 for the security deposit fee. They were supposed to return this a few days after my departing.... it did not happen that way. After a week I started calling.......

I've stayed here a few times with groups of people. It's a great property. But be forewarned, that it is a 'hostel', so there is dorm style rooming with shared hallway bathrooms, so know that in advance. But if you are okay with that, you can't bet the price to stay in NYC. Actually, it looks like from some of...

We opted for a private room which was like a budget hotel - luckily this was exactly what we were looking for - you couldnt ask for more for the price, lots of helpful staff to recommend activites for NYC virgins - we would definatley stay here again - SO close to central park and the subway!

Unless you have no other choice, I would recommend staying somewhere else. The bathrooms are horrible, the area noisy, and quite honestly rough. The staff are okay, the beds are okay. The bars on the window don't fill you with confidence. Overall, it's actually okay, but I would avoid staying here again.

To all those who have been there I'm sure they agree with me. BTW they changed their name to central park inn don't let them fool you.

Had to stay here one night when some other plans fell through about a year ago. These people are scammers. They told me one price over the phone and then raised it when I got there. The clerk tried to ask for a big tip after he grabbed my bag up the stairs without asking. Just pay for a cheap...

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighbourhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
