Equity point is situated in the ideal location. Rooms are small, but well kept. Staff was friendly and helpful, Be sure to ask for universal plugs at reception as the have them for a fraction of the price. Breakfast was average, but the location makes that a small issue.

I have to say that the Equity Point is a great location right in the heart of Times Square. Upon arrival the receptionist was very friendly and helpful and we were quickly in our room. Although this is a budget hotel it was very comfortable and clean with free safes in the room for personal belongs. I would say if... More

Stayed here with my Mam for her first trip to New York. She loved it and was really disappointed when it closed down. Great location and if it has been kept to the same standard as Hotel 41 then it's spotless clean and the staff are brilliant. Rooms are small but let's be fair with Manhattan at your doorstep how...

Just a few steps from Times Square, at 41st and right across the strees is 42st Subway Station. Its right in the middle of Manhattan so its easy to go North to Central Park and nearby attractions as the Museums also easy to go South to 9/11 Memorials and Staten Island Ferry. Its location makes it easy to move around... More

I was looking for a hostel near a subway station and near the center of Manhattan. The Equity fit the bill. Subway station right across the street, and on the southern tip of Times Square. The Equity is a hostel, but more like a hotel since each room has its own bathroom. The rooms are small. We were in a... More

We had a group of people staying in New York for a special event. This hostel was perfectly placed. Everything was basic but it was fine for a few days. We were in a quiet room but I did make a point of requesting that. Others said their rooms were noisy. Very good value if you want to really see... More

We booked the room well in advance for New Year believing it to be a hostel, upon arrival we found out it was part hotel, part hostel - a real US mongrel. The room was clean and tidy, but everything else was poor. If the business was anywhere else it would of ceased trading but due to its proximity of... More

We recently stayed here for 6 nights and it's exactly what we needed. We spent hardly no time at all here with all the sight seeing in New York. But what more do you need than a bed and shower. Ok so the rooms are on the small size but if your someone who doesn't like to sit around in... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
