Broadway Hotel and Hostel
Reviewed 21 June 2014

GOOD
- Very good location (101 St.) - 5 min walk from 96th and 103th St. stations
- Warm welcome every day at reception
- Free wi-fi in lounge area
- Very sociable
- Lots of leaflets for tourists

BAD
- Decor outdated
- Mixed gender rooms
- Bunk beds were old and uncomfortable
- Super thin walls = quite noisy

UGLY
- Painfully slow elevator!

Overall, I would still recommend this hostel/hotel to student budget traveller(s) as I got an excellent price for the quality and location! Wouldn't recommend to a more mature or pernickety crowd.

The room was satisfactory. it has shared bathroom which is fine and the location is great. Extremely near the red line subway. The price is valuable considering that it is in new york city. The common area could have been cleaner though. The internet is only available on the ground floor.

Stayed here just for a night. Arrived to find that we had been upgraded (bonus)! Staff were lovely and very helpful with any request we wanted. Ladies at the desk was exceptional. Would stay here again, reasonably priced for NYC, calm location, easy transport and a decent night sleep.

Location is perfect. Rooms are small, but ok. Bathrooms are ok, too, but towels feel very old. For a hostel, this is probably just fine. But for a "hotel," then things could be better. I checked in to a room & got into bed, and immediately saw a cockroach on the bedside table. I killed it and immediately asked to be moved to another room, which the front desk staff quickly arranged (they were also very apologetic). But, needless to say, it was hard to relax in bed after that. And that proved to be understandable, as I once again found a couple of tiny green bugs on the bed in the new room the following night. I was tired, and leaving the next day (and it was already midnight). So, no point in going through the trouble of changing rooms again. Just couldn't sleep much that second night either. These place needs to pay attention to pest control or at least have the rooms fumigated on a regular basis. I guess you get what you pay for! And I'll prefer to pay more next time, so that I can at least have a restful night...

I visited NYC for the first time in May but i just didn't want to spend a lot of money! This hostel is exactly what i was looking for. I enjoyed so much my vacation and i would come back in this place without a doubt! I really suggest this hotel to everyone! Nica accomodation in Manhattan, a clean bathroom and low price. That's it. No, i forgot that nice guy i met near the elevator....16 h a day there!!!

Do you want to see NYC or stay spend hours in your Hotel Room?

If you wait to spend hours in your Hotel Room then this is not the accomodation for you.

Broadway Hotel and Hostel is the best of its kind and best bang for your buck.
1. Clean. Safe. Small but I had with a bathroom. This is all I need.
2. Very helpfull staff.
3. They have Kitchens and everything you need to save some money exploring NYC
4. Very close to the subway and minutes walk from Central Park.
5. Close to great restaurants and stores and plces to visit.
6. It is not smack central but blanace that with the room prices then it is worth it.
7. The people are patrons are young, vibrant and energetic. Its a friendly place.

Spend your money seeing things and dining out. Dont spend it in an expensive accomodation. This is the best reason to choose Broadway Hostel.

Room Tip: Your own bathroom is a plus!
