    The Freehand was an amazing experience! The staff was very helpful and friendly, the location is incredible, the price was much more affordable than other similar options and the room was clean and larger than we thought it would be! I will be back, likely every time I come to NYC from now on.

    We were only here for one night, but everything about it was beautiful. The room is small, but very clean and comfortable. Our shower was out of soap, which was a bit of a bummer, but we didn't bother asking for a refill. It was really easy to leave our bags before and after checking in/out, so we didn't have to carry them around NYC. And at night it was still quiet enough to sleep, which was also great. Highly highly recommend. Great location & facilities for decently cheap.

    I stayed in a private single room at the Freehand and I really enjoyed it. The room was clean, had good facilities and adequate security. Only minor feedback would be that the air conditioner was loud at night and the room was warm without it on but a set of earplugs will sort that out. Besides the room, the location of the hotel was perfect, short walk to a subway station and was a safe area to be around at night. Would stay here next time I'm in New York!

    Great stay with a group of friends in the city. Good value for basically just a hotel room with bunk beds

    Just one drawback, the rooms are very small. We stayed in a Queen Room and we barely had space to walk around with our suitcase on the floor.

    Beds were comfortable. Location good. Only complaint was alarm going off repeatedly for about an hour late one night most definitely interrupted our sleep. unable to contact desk to find out what it was about. Eventually repeated announcements stated it was not an emergency. Then it would go off again. and again and again.

    Very Good

    The room was really overpriced: the photo of a single room with a Queen bed and the actual room looks very different (it's really small). The heater/cooling system was broken and it took few calls for them to address the problem. Eventually, they sent someone with a portable heater. The staff was really inhospitable and didn't give accurate directions/properly answer questions, not at all what I expected in a really nice hostel (they also ask for a 200$ security deposit).
