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

Windowless room, just enough room to walk next to the bed, just enough room to put your bags. We were checked in without one single word. The walls are paper thin. The shared bathroom was filthy / stinky / moldy. The only reason to stay here would be if you want to stay in the middle of China Town, which... More

The hostel is unlike anywhere else I have stayed. I was tight on budget during my New York trip, and booked this one in Manhattan. There is an arrangement of tens of tiny cubes one next to the other, each separated by a small wooden board. Each cube has a bed, and a cupboard. There are 4 toilets for 40-50... More

Booked this room because it was in a great location - NY China town. Took it on face value - photos look good on the internet, and very good value. Travelling alone so no one to impress. Arrived to a cool welcome - not very helpful on the reception, booked three nights and he took the money, said no refunds,... More

We initially booked for 2 nights and ended up staying 5 nights. The hotel is located in the center of Chinatown walking distance from subway station,shops,restaurants, Chinese bakeries for early morning breakfast,.etc. Our double room was very small and basic; next to the double bed is little room left for even the luggage. The public bathrooms were not always clean.... More

We made a reservation in the hotel and called back the second day to check if we could stay another night if our plan has changed. First, it took the owner forever to find our reservation and then he kept saying he had no idea the reservations in his hotel... Shouldn't he know his hotel reservations? He got so annoyed... More

When you see this hostel and people's opinion about it, first question you should ask yourself - "What can I get, if I rent a room in Manhattan for 50$?" Really, guys do you think it's gonna be something amazing? It's not a place you would like to stay in more than 1-2 days, actually, it even couldn't be called... More

The place is not good, the Chinese staff is arrogant, they don't respect online reservations, the place is dirty and smelly. There is no atmosphere. No elevators, the only good think is the location, because its in Manhattan, but unfortunately it is in China Town.
