The staff at Equity Point were extremely helpfull and friendly especially Carmen. We stayed 1 week and after being out and about each day came back to a nice clean room with new towels and the sheets changed. Very enjoyable and definately will come back and stay here.

So i will be short! Great location, and the rooms are so clean and better than most hostels. BUT, all the activites they are supposed to have, aren't happening. the bar are always empty. They only rent out for couples and people who are travelling together in summer, so if you are travelling alone and what to meet people, dont stay there. staff is horrible, and they orderd me a pirate taxi for the airport, so I had to pay almost the dobble of the price from a regulare yellow taxi.

I really enjoyed my week in this hostel :) I have met some foreign people... The bedroom is great, not noisy except for air conditioning ( like everywhere in USA ), and a very nice bathroom.

Staff we're really great and fun! Singing with someone playing the guitar and chilling in the comunial kitchen at 3am was a lot of fun. Felt like the real hostel experience!

Amazing location, close to the subway and.... TIMES SQUARE! :D

Excellent hostel - staff were so friendly and helpful, rooms were small but spotlessly clean with a cleaner in to vacuum every day. Good place to socialise - literally a minutes walk from Times Square, 5 minutes walk from Macy's, 10-15 from Grand Central Station... seriously, couldn't have asked for anything better from this hostel. Great price. (Breakfast isn't great, but theres a small supermarket on the other side of the block and each room is provided with a fridge!)

The Hotel's location is great. There is no free soup in the bath. You should buy on the desk, it comes to me a bit strange. Also, the money paid on the hostel world.com as a deposit, it did not count. They said that the money paid as a deposit is taken by hostelworld.com. That is to say that you will pay much more than you planned and showing on the site.

This hostel has THE best location in New York, right on the middle of times square and less than a block away from the subway station, which has connections to most subway lines. But there isn't so much of an atmosphere and staff doesn't have a very proactive way of helping you. Breakfast is fine. And there is no kitchen!

Very nice hostel. Best location (near times square and a lot of subway lines). The room was clean and nice. I'll recommend it.

This is a Budget Inn Hotel and not a hostel. Location is great, right by Times Square. Room is tiny but clean with full bathroom. Continental breakfast is served in the morning.

My accomodation got cancelled as hostel had over booked. I'm still yet to receive my deposit refund, almost a month later. Have had so much difficulty trying to communicate with both the hostel and hostel world. thoroughly disappointed.
