The hostel is in a great location as it is really close on the subway to Times Square. The guy at reception was really friendly and gave us tips on where to go and what to do. There is a bagel stall right outside and a great food mart just around the corner. Plenty of amenities without having to walk far. We had a room with two double beds and it was more like a basic hotel than a hostel. We were very pleasantly surprised. There was a TV with lots of channels and noise was never an issue. The only two problems we came across were the wifi and the bathrooms. The wifi only reached the fifth floor and we were at the top so had to come the reception to use the wifi ( unless you fancy sitting on the corridor of the fifth floor). The bathrooms were shared which is fine apart from the fact there were only two per floor. They were always busy and I found myself having to use the shower on the second floor one day after checking all the other bathrooms. However weighing it up its a very good price for NYC, has comfy beds and you won't actually be in the hostel for long because there's so much to do. Would definitely stay again.
