  • Its sandwiched between two stations, so its a 3-5min walk to either one. As a single traveler and a girl I felt safe getting around, but it does take a little longer to get into Queens. The room was big enough and the locker was convenient. The bathroom was seemingly cleaned every day, but is in dire need of hooks for towels. And the beds were never made and sheets not changed even upon request. There were no social activities, but you have access to a 24/7 kitchen. All in all a good experience.

  • The in our private ensuite was very small. Also still quite loud but expected since the hostel is near the 7 train.

  • Good location, very clean. The only problem is too noisy because of the trains.

  • Website says "towels provided." You have to get a towel from the front desk if you want it. They ran out before I was able to get one and had no solutions, so I had to use a pillow case to dry off. Very frustrating. I don't think the staff like their jobs. I wouldn't either, the place was a concrete cell with one dim ceiling light in each room. Noise echos off all the concrete. People in the hall were slamming their doors, I thought someone was breaking in all night.

  • The bathroom door in the mixed 6 bed dorm (specifically my room, 310) is made of frosted glass. A person silhouette definitely can be seen while bathing. There is also a 1/4" gap between the sides of the frosted glass door and the wall. Would be a problem for some ladies or guys. Water basin could be a tad bigger.

  • The location is great! As far as facilities are concerned, you get what you are paying for. Clean beds and washrooms. Very helpful staff. It would be great if they could serve breakfast as well....that would make it perfect!

  • Please pay no attention to my average rating, I never stayed at q4. Tried to cancel through, but I got a late response and was charged for my stay even though I paid the insurance fee. I have yet to receive a response from, let alone a refund. Perhaps a bad review will at least get me answers.

  • Everything seemed perfect except the noise from the metro. Not much to do about the noise anyway.

  • I had a wonderful four nights here. Staff is young and helpful. Everything is clean and the interior is hip and cool. Price is unbeatable for what you get. I met some interesting people from all over the world. Subway is nearby and close to Manhattan. The area is developing with young professionals and will be better in years to come. The only qualm is that there is no pharmacy store like Duane Reade nor CVS near by. So if you have to buy toiletries, purchase them in the city.
