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.


totally had a pleasant stay. Location is perfect, and worth every penny. wish they would've a loyalty card system thought. Definitely wanna check out their other hostel.


Great location, friendly staff. Clean room. Cant really ask for much else. Its NYC so how much time do you really spend in a hostel room.


The hostel is a bit pricey, but staff is nice and location is the best in town!


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.

We had an awsome time here.. the location is exelent, super central...


Located just a block from Times Square. Staff was super helpful and friendly. Breakfast was good and had fresh fruit.


Good hostel at a great location! 2 steps from times square, bathroom is the room was very nice, breakfast is ok, at night from my room you could hear music non stop only bad I can say about this place..


I was only here for one night but had no problems at all. Location is fantastic, staff are very helpful, I liked the fact that there were only three beds in the room and it had it's own bathroom.


The hostel was really close to time square. It wa not a social hostel with no real common area. Breakfast was provided but there was no cooking facilities. Nice place but no windows or fresh air


Unfortunately, not a party hostel, but it's great value for the money. EXCELLENT LOCATION, clean rooms, nice staff, and a decent breakfast included. Great place to crash during your New York adventure :)


this is not an hostel this is an hotel, there is not shared free environments in ehich you can cook or drink whatever you want

Very good, enjoyed everything from hostel!


Is an average hostel, it could be better. The breakfast doesn´t have too many options. the room had problems with the airconditioner. In general the people was gentle, They dont have grupal activities! Is more like a cheap Hotel than a great hostel! Location excellent.


Great breakfast, clean and spacious room, unbeatable location and quiet. I was impressed!!


Very helpful staff and the location can't be beaten. I will stay there again ;)


Great location, easy to reach and to go out, safe, clean. Good that the rooms are just for three people.
