Expert review of Broadway Hotel and Hostel

The best hostel in New York City, bar none.

You would think that a city the size of New York City would have countless hostel options for students and backpackers but that's not the case. While there are a few hostels of note - Chelsea International Hostel being one - most of the lodging options for backpackers are bed-bug-infested slums. The Broadway Hotel and Hostel on the Upper West Side is clean, affordable and offers some hotel-like amenities not found at other hostels.

Location: 

On West 103rd Street, near Central Park and a decent number of dining options. The subway is close by as well.

Bedrooms: 

Guests have their choice of bunking in dormitory-style rooms or semi-private rooms with one queen bed or two twin beds or private rooms with en suite bathrooms. All rooms have European linens, fresh towels and air conditioners. Dorms and semi-private rooms share bath facilities on each floor but they aren't dirty as one would expect. Housekeeping staff keep them clean on a regular basis. Private rooms have down comforters, flatscreen TVs, and iPod docking stations.

Public areas: 

The hotel's casual lobby lounge is a convivial place at which to meet other guests. There is also a full kitchen, library with fireplace and a media room with plasma TVs. 

Eating and drinking: 

The hotel doesn't have a restaurant.

Leisure facilities: 

 None.

Service: 

Service is a bit flustered. Get here early and plan to wait a bit during busy times.

Who stays there: 

Students, backpackers and young couples. 

Price advice: 

Prices are a steal. If you're not adverse to rooming with others, try the dormitory rooms; I prefer the private rooms. They aren't that much more expensive and you have your own private bath, which is a blessing no matter how clean the public bathrooms are.

Pros: 
Affordability
Friendly staff
Cons: 
Small rooms
Shared bathrooms can get dirty quickly
