Hello, Mefites- Is Hostelling International- New York (UWS) a safe, bedbug-free place to stay for a solo woman in her 20s?

Hey Mefites, I am planning a trip to the Big Apple next month, solo, and I am on a budget, with ideally less than $100/night going to hotels. I was considering staying at Hostelling International in the Upper West Side, right by 104th st and Amsterdam Ave, in a shared room. I am unfamiliar with NYC and have never been to NYC alone, but I wanted to save money, and I come to the hive to see if this is a safe option. Is this a safe part of the city? If anyone has ever been, were there any bedbugs or other concerns? I think that bedbugs and safety are my main concerns, as I will be there for a week. Any insight or alternate suggestions are most appreciated. Thanks so much!
