The hotel is located in Manhattan's Chinatown and has 5 levels. The personnel was not kind to me and the facilities had a tremendous lack of SANITATION. There is no sense of privacy or hygiene since there are only 4 bathrooms for about 50 tiny rooms in each floor and the bathrooms didn't seem to be serviced frequently either. The... More

Very dirty rooms. Not well located. Unfriendly staff. The walls are as thin as a paper, you can easily hear next room. Dirty restrooms. I have travelled to more than 13 countries in last two years and have been to many cheap places but this one was definitely the worst.

I think the front reception is very nice and the room normally clean at the first day. However, the television can not... More

The location and price were excellent. Stains on all the linens, pillows, blankets, were not replaced so you can still smell the sweat of the previous occupier. Towels are dark coloured due to stains. The walls are made of plywood so you can hear everything on both sides of your room. The room is the size of a walk in... More

This place is the cheapest that you can find most of the time in Manhattan... and there is a reason for that! The room are the size of a walk in wardrobe with no ceiling. Prisoners have better comfort in jail. Forget even reading in your bed or do anything except sleeping in this place. Sometimes I laugh thinking about... More

The other younger staffs was almost the same "nice but poor english"... More

For a cheap stay and location it was not bad. However, the experience of it all was terrible. I stayed for three nights and every time we got back to the room there was either one or a group of people complaining about the obvious stuff that needs some attention. For example, sharing a bathroom is understandable, but it was... More

I stayed here by myself in August 2012 for 4 nights. It was the cheapest that I could find in Manhattan at the time. The room itself was the size of a walk in wardrobe, it also had no ceiling. It was definitely somewhere that I couldn't spend a lot of time in due to the size of it and... More
