“Great”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Overall a great (and quite cheap) place to stay.
Public transportation gets you easily and in just 10 mins in Manhattan.
Rooms are extra clean, with A/C, wooden floor. beds are confortable.
It's not a party hostel, it's very quiet at night.
The only problem could be the neighborhood, kind of scary at night.

Stayed at Q4 in the fall of 2012. Was not sure what to expect but was more than pleasantly surprised. The staff were incredibly friendly, the room was immaculate, the common room and shared kitchen was fantastic and the location was ideal. It was a bit noisy but it is NYC after all. Thank you for the great stay and please keep up the good work.

Room Tip: We had a private room at the back, much quieter.

The common room is amazing, you can make your own food, cook more healthy things, or walk a block down the road and get fast food/ cafe food! There is a small corner shop just down the road with multiple subways. It was cheap too, you meet loads of people - It has a pool table, ping pong and a laundry room! The staff are amazing too, real nice people! Out of my stay in New York this was by far the best!! HIGHLY reccomend if you want luxury for a few dollars! The only thing that I would say is for travellers free food is always an eye catcher, so breakfast in the morning is the only thing that I would add! Overall its brilliant! Thank you Q4 Staff :)

Room Tip: One tip is to stay here!

Really nice, modern, secure hostel. Hotel prices in Manhattan are a criminal, cramped and expensive. Stay just one metro stop over the river and you have this place. Cheap, clean, and better than many of the hotels I've stayed in in Manhattan for 10 times the price.

Kitchen, lounge area, free wifi. We took a 4 bed dorm (2 of us) - it was great.

Only down side is that the metro passes overground, right outside, so you do get quite a bit of noise - nothing a pair of earplugs won't fix though.

No breakfast. Price is good. Clean and very near to the metro. Is that all you for enjoy New York in the budget.
Expect a lot of noises in the rooms from the trains and traffic jam outside. bed female dorm insuite for example was 43 dolares per night. You cannot find this price in a hostel in New York.

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!

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.
