    Great location, super friendly staff, very clean. Good spot to shelter while transiting through NYC at the start of the beginning of the pandemic. Have been to the bars and restaurants in this hotel in the past while living in the city and I strongly recommend those as well.

    Modern clean room with ensuite and artistic details. Room service was quick and easy. Very secure as you need a key card to get to each floor. The hallways are very dark. The facilities are very good.

    I've stayed at the freehand in Chicago and in Miami, I must say THIS tops the list! Their signature bar Broken Shaker was a delight, they have a second bar where I hung out with some peeps I met upstairs, there's a game room and a restaurant.. they have multiple events throughout the month and the staff is very friendly from the housekeeping team to the front desk staff, will deff stay there again

    Great place to stay if you want some comfort during your travels or vacation. Price wise this is top end of the hostel budget but you get everything you pay for. Stylish surroundings, cozy rooms, safe and secure and friendly staff. There are bars and restaurants attached to the hotel but New York is such a vast city it would be a shame to eat and drink so close to your room unless you had no choice. Great location in the heart of Manhattan and easy transport links to get anywhere you want.

    Worth splashing the cash if only for a short stay. Great location close to metro & sights, great cafe downstairs, a little pricey but very nice food, staff are incredibly helpful & the hotel is designed beautifully. Not a hostel like advertised on the website, it’s a hotel.

    So I can’t really review this hostel. I had bought 4 beds for 3 nights for the weekend of March 20th. Which I’m sure we all know had to be canceled. Unfortunately they did not give me my money back which I’m frustrated about. They did offer me to stay later in the year but it was for an event which was canceled. The staff was friendly when explaining all this, it was just a bummer.
