Dirty smelly hole with hostile personal
Horrible dirty smelly place with very hostile stuff, no WiFi all the time, cockroaches everywhwere! During four days firefighters come three times because of fire dangerous.

Happy face iconLiked: Cleanliness, staff & service
The Central Park West Hostel was a pleasant surprise. Abundant hot water and pressure, clean bathrooms and rooms, not all that noisy, and a great location for multiple public transportation options. The building itself is a little rough looking and the neighborhood too, but don't be fooled, it's a good place to stay and lots of yummy food and beverage choices in easy walking distance. I'd stay there again without question!

No soap with coronavirus?
There is no soap in any of the bathrooms. I even went to another floor to check. That means no one else washes their hands, either. Coronavirus? People are living full-time in the hostel. Garage sale furniture and still broken broken elevator. Not pictured. I asked for soap and was given to hotel like packages.
