"Fantastic location, felt very safe which was important to me for being alone in NYC. Main contact person was fairly amiable for a NewYorker. Even though it didn't have a traditional hostel setup, I was fortunate to stay…"

Liked: It was small, not too many people. It was kind of nice to get the apartment style living in NYC. Free WiFi was great. I also like the people I stayed with - easy going and chilled out. Very close to Times Square.

Disliked: I booked a 4 bed female dorm for the whole stay. Initially I was placed in a private room with one other girl (which they tried to sell to both of us because it was technically a more expensive room but both being solo travellers you want to meet people). I was then forced to move apartments to one 5 blocks away after being there three nights. I was now in a 6 bed mixed dorm. I didnt mind this because the guys were relaxed and friendly but I had nowhere to lock my stuff and it just wasnt' what I booked. All the apartments have different facilities. The first one had a microwave but no kitchenette. The second one had a full kitchenette but absolutely no utensils to cook or eat with so it was pointless. There was also no microwave. The place didnt feel clean (especially the bathroom). The bathmat smelled but you couldnt air it out. The area of town did not feel safe at all for a female solo traveller. I'm not easily scared of rough neighbourhoods but I didnt feel safe at all when walking home at night.

Liked: Nada

Disliked: No habia nadie con quien quejarte, te dejan en un departamento a 5 cuadras de donde supuestamente es el hostel, no tenes ningun lugar en comun para hablar con gente, y nadie va a limpiar la habitacion ni siquiera cuando se va alguna de las personas que ocupa la habitacion, solo hacen la cama y se van.

Liked: What a snazy apartment! Just a few blocks from Times Square, which is the most perfect location if you want to see a ton of Broadway shows like I did;). You do have to remember that they have apartments in different locations on Manhattan, which are also of different standard. Ours though was really sweet with flat screen tv, a fire place and a new kitchen.

Disliked: See above.

Liked: Not much. Location really only good thing.

Disliked: Very dirty! Kitchen had NO utensils whatsoever. No lift so you have to walk up 4 flights of stairs with luggage. Toilet did not work. No heating and smelt pretty bad like smoke. Pretty much the worst place i've stayed in.

Liked: The location is great, a few blocks away from central park and time square. You get your own apartment that has two rooms in it and you share between those so if you are traveling with people it's like you have your own place.

Disliked: No communal area really to meet other people. There is a kitchen but no pots and pans. The bathrooms were a little dirty. The location is a little far from the best going out areas but it is only a short train ride away.

Liked: No one else was staying in the 6 bed womens "dorm" at the time so we practically had our own apartment right outside of Time square. This place had granite counter tops , a full kitchen, 42 in plasma screen, and even a back porch. Botiques "hostel" isnt an actual hostel but they rent apartments around the city out by the night. So your experience may be differernt from mine. But if you get the apartment on 51st street between 9th and 10th, you will seriously enjoy your time. The place you check in and pay s different from where you actually stay, we had to walk about 2 blocks but it wasnt bad.

Disliked: the shower dripped at night and the shower and shower curtain seemed a bit moldy

Liked: It's a great location, and a nice place to stay - you get a proper little apartment with two rooms, and four beds per room.

Disliked: With no real communal area except the kitchen in the apartment, there is no real way to meet people and socialise. The kitchen itself is underequipped - you get a stove, an oven, a coffee maker, four mugs, three plastic cups and three plastic forks. There are no saucepans and no proper cutlery or utensils.

Liked: There was a lot of freedom - just like living in your own apartment. There was a computer, printer, fridge, microwave and just the necessities. The bathroom was clean and you have your own privacy. The area was also just a 10-minute walk to Times Square, which makes it an attractive location.

Disliked: It was an overall good experience.
