Adequate but basic. For a triple room tho the cost @ $79 was too expensive. Total of $240 a night.....may as well have sourced a regular 3-star NY hotel @$250 a night with more facilities and more space etc. Not the best value. Loveliest receptionist however: Carmen.

Amazing hostel! Stayed in a twin room which had an en suite bathroom and three electronic safes, definitely felt more like a hotel than a hostel. Everywhere is very clean, and there's a nice bar area for relaxing. Staff were very friendly and helpful, and the location in Times Square is perfect, very close to the main sights and very close to a subway stop for anywhere further out. Would definitely recommend this hostel, great value for money especially considering the location!

The only real problem was the weak wifi service - not only weak but sometimes just stopped working at all.

Two years ago, I thought this place was amazing. It was extremely clean, busy with people, and looked great. However, upon arriving this time round, in 2014, it was appalling. The only assets it has is its location to Times Square and its price. Apart from that, the rooms need a good paint (finger marks everywhere), new light fittings (only one of two wall lights worked- the other was hanging off) and a deep clean. Breakfast was garbage as well (coco pops!). As compared to last time- 4/10.

Talk about "location location location" the place is great if you want to be in the middle of Manhattan, just a few feet away from Times Square and near the Porth Autorothy and Penn Station. My check in was made by Carmen,she was very nice and helpful, I didn't talk with anyone else, the only thing I have to say about the staff, is that in more than one ocation they were eating lunch/dinner right at the front desk...it didn't look very profesional.

Whole week no hot water! Thank you for making me sick! Payed a lot for this stay and then the staff is not able to bring a plumber in the hostel to fix the issue. BAD! Even didn't get a free night or something. Never gonna stay there again.

Water was turned off the day we arrived, leaving us to hand fill the toilet water tank to enable it to flush. Shower pressure was very poor during whole stay (4 nights). On the plus side, the price was amazing for the location! Great connections for subway. Would stay here again.
