“Had better places to stay and there are no elevators”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2013

The room was clean and the staff friendly but be warned, the hotel is right next to a railway line which can be noisy - when I asked to change rooms I was told the hotel was booked out but they were helpful in offering earplugs.

Upon viewing the evacuation plan which has the size of the rooms displayed on the back of the door, we had the smallest room on level 3 - no elevators. I was disappointed as I had booked 5 months in advance. The location is lousy with a 30 minute walk to the nearest grocery shop. There is NOTHING in the immediate area.

Staff come and go into your room at any time to empty your bin or check for leaks so I didn't feel our stuff was safe, we had a private room with our own bath/toilet (very tiny). I would not recommend really if staying in NYC.

A nice alternative and affordable to hotel, clean, spacious, close to the train, close to manhattan, a superb lounge area and affordable rates!! It does not look like a hostel but an actual hotel! In the lounge area they even had nice hookah like intimate lounge. :) If you want a nice place to stay then go to the Q4 Hotel. It was great.

That's a very nice hostel! Breakfast is not avaliable, but there are some places to eat nearby.
Safe place, clean (linens were not changed in four days though), fair price, few meters from Queensboro subway station, free wifi connection. Check the lounge at the 2nd floor, it's very nice.
I recommend this hostel, for sure!

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.
