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!

Hotel muito bem localizado, muito perto da Times Square e dos principais teatros. Próximo a museus e do Central Park. Tem uma estação de metrô na esquina. Café-da-manhã simples mas suficiente, quartos amplos. O colchão não é muito confortável, mas não chega a atrapalhar a noite de sono. Banheiro bom. O único ponto negativo ficar por conta da internet. O sinal pega bem nos quartos, mas a qualidade da conexão é péssima ou para de funcionar. Não contem com a internet do Equity Point.

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.

La mejor ubicación para moverse en NY. Cuartos muy pequeños pero con caja de seguridad, sabanas y toallas muy limpias, buena ducha y agua caliente en baño privado. Básico aunque buen desayuno con leche, café, cereales, yogurt y manzanas. Ojo con las reservas: Reservamos con varios meses de anticipación y nos quisieron dar un día en un cuarto y luego otro (salir de uno a las 10 AM, entrar al otro las 2 PM)... pérdida de tiempo si viajas por pocos días. Felizmente la sra. Carmen lo resolvió.

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.

So close to everything : Subway, Theaters, Port Authority, Times Square. The place is perfect. I will definitely stay there on my next trip to NYC.

위치가 정말 좋았어요. 지하철역도 가깝고 지나다니는 노선도 많아서 편리했습니다. 숙소 비싼 뉴욕에서 이 정도 시설이면 싸게 얻은 것 같아요. 묶었던 방이 7층이어서 그런지 수압이 낮았던 것 빼곤 다 만족스러웠습니다.

Sehr zentral, wirklich direkt am Time Square. Den Verkehr hört man kaum, da die Zimmer Innen sind. Deshalb sind aber auch kaum brauchbare Fenster in den Zimmern. Die Zimmer sind sehr einfach eingerichtet, morgens gibt es ein kleines Frühstück, bestehend aus Cornflakes, bügeln, Cremecheese, Tee, Kaffe, Marmelade, Milch und Eine Obstschale. die Warmwasserleitung war nicht in Ordnung, so dass wir von Samstag bis Mittwoch kein warmes Wasser hatten. Ohne Nachfrage gab man uns deswegen 30% Preisnachla

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.

A localização é incrível! A maioria dos lugares fui a pé. Os quartos são bem limpos, os recepcionistas são bem atenciosos e educados. O café da manhã, apesar de simples, foi o suficiente, tinha pães, cereais, iogurte, café, leite, chá e frutas. A conexão do wifi sempre caia enquanto estava no quarto, mas nas áreas comuns funcionava bem.

Goede prijs-kwaliteitverhouding. Bedden zouden iets comfortabeler mogen. Verschil in vriendelijkheid personeel is groot. Van supervriendelijk tot receptiemedewerker die je niet eens aankijkt. Verder een prima hostel op een geweldige locatie.
