Travel Forums North America Hostel in NY quick question

Anybody stayed in the "International Student Centre" New York?
I cant really find any trustworthy reviews and i'm fed up with wimpy bloody travellers bitching about "the colours of the walls" or "it smelt funny".

Welcome to budget travelling my freinds!

Any opinions from the only travellers i've learnt to trust please?

Matt don't know anything about the hostel. But it is located in a good area. Safe and close to public transport. If you have any questions about where to go and what to do let me know, and I will more than happy to help. Brent

I haven't stayed there, but one place I want to warn people against staying (and I am no wimpy bloody traveller), is Wanderers Inn West. I have plenty of reasons for that, but the main one is because of stupid staff members who are on in the evening, and then the arsehole on in the morning. You might get yourself accused of stealing, and be threatened that they will call the police on you all because the staff that checked you in didn't give you a key or issue a reciept but instead unlocked the door for you. So it is best to avoid that hostel if at all possible, but if it isn't possible be sure that you are issued with a receipt and key or else you will be threatened with having the police called on you.
