Liked: Great staff, chilled atmosphere.

Disliked: the area was a little rustic, had to appease some homeless which admittedly was no problem.

Liked: The location is unbeatable for theater-goers like me. Two blocks to Broadway. Security was good and the place was quiet. Bathrooms were clean. Liked free access to a computer since I did not bring one. Wall map of the NYC subway system was helpful.

Disliked: The four-person dorm got stuffy. We did not know we could have the window open with the AC on but it is really necessary. Did not like the mixed dorm situation but it is clearly stated in the description so it was my own bad luck. Could have more info about NYC for visitors. You are left pretty much on your own.

Liked: Great location, clean and quiet

Disliked: The direction written on hostelbookers is wrong (it depends of the room you booked)! Just before I arrived, they send me an email and tried to call me to tell me that it was not the direction indicated. Of course, as I was travelling, I didn't read the email, and I searched for the hostel during 45min with my luggage. It was across the street of the direction written in hostelbookers. And there is no sign or even a name on the door to indicate the hostel !

Liked: Nice price and great place. I could recommenced it to anyone looking for a place to stay. Location is very near to Times sql. 10 minutes walking. Also subway is very near. The area is not dangerous at all and it's very quiet. The staff and especially Brian was very very helpful and kind. There is also a laundry right next to the hostel.

Disliked: maybe bigger lockers so you can lock your entire baggage.

Liked: Top Lage, super nettes Personal, wenige Zimmer = entspannend, jeden 2ten Tag frische Handtücher, Klima im Zimmer

Disliked: Die Küchenausstattung ist etwas mager (wenig Geschirr). Aber in NY geht man ja eh zum Supermarkt an der Ecke zum Frühstücken.

Liked: Very clean. Excellent location for Times Square & surrounding area.

Disliked: Due to the nature of the property (loft apartment split into dorms) it is difficult to build up social interaction with other guests.

25 June 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Great place, not a backpackers but a guesthouse, so your getting a bed in a shared (2 ppl) room, clean and accessable. Not a place you want to be sitting around to talk with other travellers as most just sleep here, it is not a social point but if you are in NYC to see the city this is a great place to base from. Prices much better than ALL local hostels.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: It was a guesthouse so there were only 2 rooms upstairs with 4 beds in each so it wasn't crammed like a hostel with problems with cold showers or not enough facilities. Felt more like living with roommates which was good. The tenant was very nice and willing to help with anything you needed.
