Do not get fooled by the photos of this hotel ... I don't know where those rooms are but the the 2 rooms I have seen were shabby and did not looked nothing like the ones I have seen on the photos before I have booked the room ... the entrance to the Hotel is via a steel door (... More

Very handy - close to Madision Square Garden, so close to the Subway, Trains (airport - New Jersey) and the Metrobus (coaches to many major cities Philadelphia, Boston, Washington etc. Rooms are very basic - Bed and small TV. No chair or table so should you decide to eat in your room, then you'll have to balance everything on your... More

I was a bit skeptical at first about booking a hostel for my trip to New York - I'm so used to star rated hotels that I was really hoping I wouldn't be disappointed.. And I wasn't :) The hotel/hostel is situated right opposite Penn Station which is one of the main Subway stations in New York so you can... More

THE GOOD I was in NY on business (with a budget) looking for a cheap place within walking distance to my conference. This hotel is in a really good location. During my stay, I walked to the Tribeca/Little Italy/Chinatown area, East Village, Greenwich Village/Soho, Gramercy and Times Square. The price is also really good for NYC (My Superior Room was...

The dorm room was really basic and quite expensive. But its Manhatten in the heart of NewYork so I guess its okay'... The terrace is quite nice and the staff was really friendly and welcoming. good times in NYC.

Stayed here for two nights as I took in the sights of NYC. Very convenient to subway and restaurants. Nothing fancy, but who needs stuffy rom service when you can get your own Avian water at the local deli. Bed was comfortable and the room was clean. All I needed was a place to sleep not a place to live.... More

Some friends and I stayed here for a bachelor party weekend in May 2013. I thought this place was solid for the price and size and it is very conveniently located right by Madison Square Garden in the Chelsea/Hell's Kitchen area. We liked the set up of the rooms and the fact you could hang outside on a roomy fire... More

Stayed December 2013, Scaffold around building, nothing like photos on web. Notice of closure of certain rooms posted on front door, (entrance like a back street hovel) which wasn't very reassuring. We were a family of 4 so first night we were given a room with 2 double beds, the Dali painted room. Clean white towels supplied, but shared bathroom... More
