This is not a cheap hotel, it is not fit for human habitation. I was upset that Booking.com allows this place to be listed. We were shown a room only a few square feet in size with dirty walls, dirty floor and sheets. These people obviously just advertise the place as a hotel knowing that when customers arrive they will... More

Simply the worst place we've ever stayed.Dried blood on the wall, tiny room you couldn't swing a cat in, which was only separated by a partition to the next room. Doors banging all night. Absolute kip

This crappy place could be called a hotel? I booked a double room with private bathroom, they gave me a room with shared bathroom(shared with a lot of rooms I believe). The room is the worst place I stayed ever. It is noisy, dirty, and COLD. 1. The room is next to the busy street (cars&trucks passing by all nights).... More

Good location, 2 minutes walk from subway station, and walkable distance to Brooklyn bridge and financial district. Very cheap, the cheapest place to stay in New York City. Bathroom was disgusting and not enough for everyone, there are 53 rooms on one floor with only two bathroom. Room was so small, too small to stay in. I think they did... More

Inexpensive and close to the B and D subway. I stayed seven nights on the fifth floor. There is no elevator. There are no phones in the room. If you need the front desk, it is on the second floor which meant, for me, a walk down three flights of steps. My TV did not work for the entire stay,... More

The room is too pricy for its constricted space. There is only space for one bed and it charges 84 dollars. Also, the towels are worn out and contains marks on them. It only has an outdated TV with no remote control, which provides inconvenience. The supplies are cheap.

Our room was only the size of the bed, we couldn't even fit our luggage on the floor or open the door all the... More
