Recently stayed at the Yotel for business. As a designer myself, I appreciated staying here to experience the new concept. It is a Youth Hostel meets hip, but tiny, NYC hotel...and it works! the shared spaces are very well designed and themed. the cabins are tiny, but extremely well laid out.
if you plan to spend a lot of time in the room, it may not be the right place, even though they managed to get all comfort items into the space. lots of storage, easy access to clothing/closet (no closet, just smart hangers and drawers), well proportioned TV and the convertible couch to bed.
I did read somewhere that once the bed is extended, the room is not maneuverable... it is tight, but not true.. and it is exactly as described.
The one design flaw I have to note is the shower. It is "grouped" with the toilet" and can be closed of form the sink with a superficial sliding glass door. all good....but the partition between the shower and toilet does not work and makes a nice puddle...
Still great experience. Super close to the convention center (my target) and walking distance to Chelsea, Madison Square Garden and the Theater district... give it a try.
