    Located directly next to the Metro station. Clean rooms. Staff pays attention to security.

    Only two bathrooms on one floor with about 10 dorms, but I was always lucky.

  • Single

    No services, not even a cold drink machine.

    2 bathrooms per floor - be prepared to wait at times.

    The staff was nice.

    Since the restroom is shared I'd like for it to be really clean. I am a clean freak! I also saw and heard that they were renovating some of the rooms. They need to renovate the restroom tubs. Since the bathrooms are shared, they really need to be in excellent shape. I was disappointed with the restrooms.

    Relatively free of disturbing noice. Could work for back-packers had the price been significantly lower than the $98 + taxes I was charged.

    Extremely small room, uncomfortable bed, torn towels and broken tap handles in the only bathroom on the floor! Not one single closet, hanger or even hook on the wall to hang a jacket. I'm lucky it was only for one night and will never stay there again nor recommend it to anyone.

    Sharing the room with just one more person is nice (for this price I had to share my room with 13 other people the last time that I went to NY).

    Curfew at 2am (though it was a monday).

  • Group of friends

    There are only 2 beds in each room.

    The bathrooms were dirty, some staff were rude, the rooms were either boiling hot or freezing, people were very loud throughout the night, no facilities for food, the neighborhood was awful.

    I like overall the staff who was very pleasant and friendly and always eager to help

    The only thing I didnt like was that the room was cold during the night time (we asked for blankets for the second night and it was ok) and that the appearance of the place is dreadful. But you can't expect a palace with a hotel located in Manhattan at those prices!

    The man at front desk was a bit rude to me when I first checked in at night.

  • Couple

    Had to stay here 3 nights due to the ash cloud. Friendly staff, spacious room.

    Had to pay 4 dollars to store our luggage (2 bags). There was a leak in one of the pipes in the bathroom, so wet floor after shower. Rather far from the city center and price/quality relationship could be better.

    It was really near the sub-station and the central Park. The room was nice, though they should clean more often. During my stay the bathroom wasn't cleaned once.About the staff, some are friendly some don't really help you. Depends on your luck, who you get. But for the price, I would recommend it to other people who are out the whole time and don't have to stay really long.

    I didn't like it, that my luggage was opened when I came one night, even though the I closed it. And they should maybe help with your luggage. I lived in the 3 floor but had to carry my luggage up the stairs alone (I'm a weak girl xD) And they should be a little bit friendlier at the phone.

    It was good to be close to the subway.

    The heating system was very noisy at nights that I could not sleep very well.

    The location I'm manhattan.

    A very bad experience.we have pased our first night in a room which doesn't deserve to be served.if we didn't pay in advance,we would change the hotel.as far,we are going to keep a poor souvenir.

  • Older travelers

    They got a bell room to keep the luggage at reception. Thats the only good thing.

    Everything was Wrong at this hotel. Its noicy. Room is very very small. It doesnt contain anything other than a bed. If you are coming with big luggage, forget opening it. you cant do it. Its very difficult. Common bathrooms are always full. You need to roam around other floors. Only 2 bathrooms for the whole floor with arund 20 rooms. Only 1 or two plug points in the room. WiFi is only available at the lobby. No Breakfast option. With the price you pay here, you can get a decent hotel in New Jersey. Wrong decision to stay here. Dont stay here.

    Staff was very friendly and helpful, location is absolutely marvelous.

    The hostel is rather poorly kept, it should be cleaner, the smell is somewhat annoying but I guess can´t have everything for the amount they charge.

    It's clean and well located. The staff is welcoming and helpful.

    Somehow the rates for the room , but New York is very expensive. Why do they not accept credit card? Pity.
