    This was a fantastic find for a single traveller! The hotel was very cool, had a great vibe and was fantastically located. A couple of subway stops very close by. The room was beautiful and perfect for one person with a really lovely bathroom too. It’s well worth the price considering what else is on offer in the city.

    Excellent place to stay with reasonable prices (for NewYork!). Location one block from metro stop with many surrounding restaurants. I had private room and bath which was small but quite functional and clean. Well decorated also! Staff very friendly and helpful. Felt quite safe. Rooftop bar, nice large lounge, breakfast/lunch cafe, and nice restaurant on site. Highly recommend!

    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.

    Fantastic hotel! The staff were amazing & super helpful. Rooms were clean & had everything I needed for my stay. Enjoyed dinner at Simon & The Whale which was one of the best meals we had during our week in nyc. Both bars & the studio were great locations for drinks/snacks with friends & all offered happy hour at different times of the day/night. Location was great & walking distance to many main attractions & several metro stations. I would definitely stay here again when visiting nyc.

    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.

    Although I waited two hours for my room to be ready after 3pm check in, it was a really lovely room. For a solo traveller it was small but had everything I needed. The bathroom really shocked me with how big the shower was and the lovely toiletries they had available. Both a TV and radio in the room, along with a mini fridge came in handy for keeping water cold during the hot days. Wasn’t overly happy paying a facilities fee as I didn’t use any of the facilities other than WiFi.

    This is a well situated hotel with good amenities. We reserved a bunk type room for 4 of us which was clean and attractive but much smaller than I expected. Good photos really can make a room look so spacious! We had a trouble on our second night (a Monday) with really loud music from the bar below us going on until after 11pm. Took a visit to the front desk and a chat with a manager to resolve. Also I got clobbered pretty hard by an elevator door on our 3rd day. Staff responded quickly

    Enjoyed stay, but 18% tax added to final bill. Management waived fee, but only after an hour wait. They will try not do this again. You must call them to see complete cost with last minute added tax and facility fees.
