I am looking forward to my next stay! I went for a single room with shared bathroom. The room was clean, the only downside was that all the furniture is so old, it looked ''dirty'' but it wasn't. Not sure I am making any sense lol. Cable TV, heater, aircon and fridge in the room, a nice area to store... More

I survived for two nights. Bed was ok, very tiny room. The shared showers and bathroom were not great. Hardly worth 108. per night per person...But if you just have to stay there for a couple of nights, its ok.

I have never seen a ruder staff! Not only was I treated with a lack of respect, but when other travelers were checking in, they were treated even worse. Heaven forbid if you are coming from another country to experience the excitement of New York City! A young French student was struggling with communication and when another traveler, who spoke...

Rooms are tiny, air conditioning was rubbish and ridiculously loud. The shared bathrooms were a joke as the toilets were always broken. Only upside is good location but I'd rather pay extra for a room bigger than a pig pen.

Very good value.Shared bathrooms weren't great but $105 a night for Midtown East is cheap.Staff are good.For the price you get use if the fantastic gym. It's also good point from which to navigate the rest of Manhattan.

The room was a two man bunk bed with literally not enough space to swing a cat. The beds were not comfortable and the air con was loud, but it was a lot cheaper than a hotel and you get free use of fitness facilities which were awesome, a great 25m pool, weights room, resistance suite and cardio room.

Stayed in a private bedroom for 3 nights and the price was excelent, given the circumstances of the city. The bedroom is small, but once you're in NYC you won't wanna stay there. Close to the Grand Central, 20 minutes walk to Times Square, didn't even use the subway. Young atmosphere.

Paid $120/night for a 2 person twin bunk bed room August, 2014. Right before our trip we noted the same rooms going for around $260/night. When we checked in we quickly realized we had been given a room on the unrenovated floor. The other floors rooms and washrooms had obviously been reno'd. Our room was tiny, barely big enough for...

Bathrooms were awfully unclean, there was a cockroach on the sink one morning. Locks on room didnt work, staff were very rude, bedrooms were very small and no wardrobe. Bunk beds when described as a twin room. Only plus was it was walking distance to main areas and close to grand central. Wifi worked for all of our friends but... More
