  • The staff was so cool, they helped us with everything we needed during our stay. The only problem was the wifi, our phones kept disconnecting all the time but it wasn't such a big deal.

  • For visiting NYC, I figured this was the best location of all the hostels. We rode the subway everywhere, and there is a station right outside from the Equity. I am sure other NYC hostels are on the subway line, but none this close to Times Square. I was not sure what 'en suite' meant for the rooms, but found out it means we all have our own bathrooms. There are no single bunks or rooms, so you should have at least 1 other person to split the cost. It was perfect for my son and I.

  • The receptionist on our first day was super nice and really helpful. Great location close to Times Square, and it does not take very long to get other areas with the subway. Would stay here again.

  • Staff was very friendly, facility was clean, and rooms were perfect and clean for our stay. Rooms aren't over the top perfect, but they provide you with a clean place to sleep and shower. I would recommend staying here if visiting New York City.

  • The hostel has a great location, in the middle of Times Square / Broadway. A lot of subways around, is very easy to go out. The breakfast is very simple, water, fruits, milk, coffee and bread, just. But is good. The internet is a little slow, but you can deal with it. There's no TV in the room.

  • Incredible location. Staff was very helpful with our confusing reservations I made. Bar on the first floor was great as well. I was traveling with two other guys so we had a 3 bedroom with toilet/shower which was great. This is my 3rd hostel other being in chicago and san fran and this was definitely the best, will come back.

  • The room was quiet noisy, but if you ask for a quiet room you can't have a better place to stay!

  • I couldn't have been more impressed with the Equity Point New York @ Times Square! The price was cheap and the rooms were perfect. I was so surprised to see that my boyfriend and I had not only our own bathroom, but AC and a TV as well! It was an amazing experience and it helped make our stay in NYC unforgettable.
