“Great Hostel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Pro: A really nice clean hotel that is in a great location. There are 2 stations within walking distance and time square is only 4-5 stops away. Transport running 24hr makes it easy to get home at anytime! The hostel was a bank originally so the downstairs/vault has been converted into the kitchen/common area. There's a projector, table tennis, pool table as well as a large tv with cable. A great place for hanging out and meeting others. It can seem pricey for a hostel but this is the cheapest decent accommodation in NY. Free printing of boarding passes too.

Con: The wifi is free but signal is very poor, computers cost to use as does luggage storage ($5 a day). Beds are really soft, way to soft.

If these things were different then I would have gave it 5 stars!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2012

I stayed here with two of my friends for two nights, and overall the experience was great. The rooms were very clean, and the common area downstairs was nice. One of the negative things that we found that was there was only one overhead light. We were in a room with 4 bunk beds and it would have been great to have small lights on each of the beds, for more control. For example, when we got back to our room each night there was a different girl sleeping in the extra bed and the room was already dark. It made getting ready for bed a bit awkward, It is a small thing but i think would make a big difference. The staff was very helpful and even printed us a map for places to go for breakfast.

its nice, clean,very basic. Rooms have clean bathrooms and comfortable beds.
they have a dowstairs common area with full kitchen and tables, tv and lounge area.

Very appropiate for single new york traveler, specially if you are in college and watching your $$. Very unique characters you get to see.

Metro station less that 5 minutes away in walking distance.

The only bad things is that the metro is so close you could hear it all nite, not good if you are a lite sleeper, but we were so tired when we got to bed that I couldnt ever hear it! lol

3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

We stayed at Q4 for 6 nights. Our room was # 303 - train tracks view. A private one, ideal for a couple.

The first night was a noise nightmare, since the train track is almost inside the room. The building is very well located. It was a bank before not conceived to be a hotel. You MUST HAVE your earplugs on ($1 at front desk ) to get a good night of sleep.

The staff is well informed and very kind.

The room looked very clean until I checked under the bed, but don't worry, what the eyes don't see the heart doesn't feel.

For $130 a night I expected to get at least a hotel size soap, but not.

The kitchen, amenities and the board info are all great.

Overall, it's not that bad but it's not that good too, its Ok - 5/10.

NYC its awesome.

This hostel is new, staff is great, nice facilities (two common areas with kitchen, fridge and microwave), really close to Queens Plaza subway station (15 minutes to manhattan) . Just buy a pair of earpluggs and it will be the best value for money option.

Room Tip: Better get a 2 or 4 persons room and buy earpluggs.

This hostel was great, we only stayed for one night and had such a good time. Rooms were immaculately clean, staff really friendly - overall was brilliant. When booking we questioned the location but it is next to the subway straight to manhattan - great alternative to get good accomodation in the city rather than mediocre overpriced stuff in the city!

This is one of the nicest hostels I've ever stayed at. Nice modern decore with a large common room. They don't have an elevator and the trains nearby can be noisy. But you can't avoid stairs and noise in New York. The staff was very helpful with directions for the subway. My only complaint the water in the shower was not hot; warm at best. Great hostel.
