rooms were okay, ensuite bathrooms were nice but sometimes ran out of hot water, my bed didnt have a powerpoint near it and I didn't want to leave things on charge overnight on the other side of the room. The breakfast was good, cereals toast and fruit with tea and coffee. Staff were more than willing to help out when I had an issue with flights. my room didn't have a fridge or table just a bunk bed and a single. As usual I was too tall (6"2) for a single bed but that's pretty standard.

A great place to stay. It's in a fantastic location, and is quite new and very clean. Just don't expect any activities, common areas, laundry facilities, kitchen or other hostel stuff. But it is New York, so it never really bothered us.

Whilst pricey for a hostel; you simply can't get a better location. Located right in the heart of Times Square. If your looking to see the main sights and avoid much travel its perfect. Free breakfast was great with plenty of choice. Staff super friendly. Sheets and room clean with en-suite washroom.One complaint. Bar closes too early at 12 and the night I stayed the barman was packing up and had stopped serving at 11.50. Not cool for the city that never sleeps! Aside from that great hostel.

the hotel is located in the center of NYC. It's really easy for locating the place if you're coming from the airport. It's also easy for you to go around exploring the city since it's right at the center. No need to worry about spending too much time commuting back and forth. This way you can have as much fun as you want.

Hard to make friends. I'm in NYC, so I'd like the ability to make friends easily and hang out with locals. Bar is ok, but not really cosy.

Was a really nice hostel. Traveling the world this hostel definitely has a high standard and the location at times square is amazing. The price is high but it's fair for what you get. The people where nice and very helpful. The rooms are clean and there was enough space. Having an own safe in the room was also very useful. It fitted everything and even notebooks would have gone in there so no worry about your valuables getting stolen. Thanks for the stay.

Definitely qualifies as an "upscale" hostel. Good facilities, location was great. Too bad we didn't stay long enough to really appreciate the place.

Really nice, but very noisy all night which is to be expected with th location, however window didn't appear to close properly which didn't help with th noise level.
