"As good as it gets when it comes to hostels!" Big Apple Hostel Tip by Quartzy
Big Apple Hostel, New York City: 18 reviews and 10 photos
A man we met in a youth hostel in Winnipeg, Manitoba, recommended this hostel to a friend and me, and rightly so!
The staff was very friendly and the place was clean. I was pleased with the fact that dorms only include 4 beds. Do bear in mind, though, that this is still a hostel after all, so the room is rather small.
There are four washrooms on each floor; they are the only down side I can think of, because you might have to wait a little in the morning before you can take your shower. Also, although they are clean, some of the baths have nasty stains; plus, adjusting the temperature of the water and getting good pressure isn't easy.
The hostel has 6 floors; you can use the small elevator.
Everytime I went, I used the online reservation system without a problem.
Unique Qualities: The hostel has a nice outdoor terrace, but its most interesting quality is definitely its location: right in the middle of Time Square! You can even get there by foot from Port Authority Terminal: it's just blocks away. So, obviously, you have an amazing number of restaurants and souvenir boutiques within walkable distance - so are the Broadway theatres.
And of course, it's cheap.
