Dirty old carpets, blackened tiles & chipped doors would be acceptable if the stay was cheap, but here the cost is comparable to a hotel, even in NYC. The hostel was clean, the staff was helpful and the location was amazing. The bar was always empty/closed. For me the deal-breaker was the wifi not working, and the note which said the wifi works sometimes and doesn't work sometime, which seems like a neglected issue. It never worked when we tried it, and living without internet is not easy.

Shower has no pressure. Difficult to rinse and wash hair.

We had a guy walk into our room late one night using his key for the 4th floor; which is a bit worrying! House keeping come around daily which is great, even after our rather long lie ins. There was just one day, our last which put a downer on the stay where they could only be bothered to leave fresh towels. We were woken at 8am by some "building work next door" which sounded like the walls caving in, when we asked about this at reception, we didnt recieve an apology which would have been nice.

We had such a great time at this hostel. The rooms were a little soul-less but very very clean and comfy to sleep in. The bar downstairs was also really comfy to sit in. The only improvement that could be made was that the wifi was very intermittent.

Rachel and the rest of the Equity Point NYC staff took good care of us! My room was clean, the water in the shower was hot, the beds were comfortable, the trash and linen service was unexpected and very much appreciated, and the continental breakfast hit the spot. I liked that there are restrooms off the lobby and a television in the bar area where the continental breakfast is served. Suggestions: Bring a washcloth if you use one. Fruit not served every day. Shower heads high up.

The location is perfect. It's right by times square, subway stations are few seconds away. Could use a little bit of soundproofing (as nyc can get a lil bit noisy at times haha), but other than that it's fine. Love the decor and lounge.

Great value for money- couldn't get a better location. Relatively modern facilities - although shower had black mould - but quite clean generally. Helpful staff, good security and good free breakfast

Amazing. The desk people were wonderful, the hotel was clean, the singe beds were perfect for my daughter and me, and the location was to die for.
