I stayed in a double room (bunk bed) for $104 per night.
The hotel is not good.
However if you're looking for a cheap place in the heart of Manhattan I dont think you have another option. Everything is too much expensive in that city.
The place is very simple, but clean. The room is very small, nearly 5m2. In this space they could make a magic: they were able to put the bed, one chair, one frigo, one tv and one litlle wardrobe.
There is no space left for being confortable.
The bathroom was shared among all the guests on the floor, there were at least 30 rooms.
I didnt´t have any problem to use the bathroom as i did that at times with no "rush". I am used to take bath late at night and get up very early, so people were not willing to use the bathroom the same time as I was. However, sometimes you will find a line for the shower.
In spite of that the bathroom was clean. There was liquid soap for free (bad, hawever)
The location is good. It is in central Manhattan, The nearest metro station is 51st with Lexington. You can go to any place you want from there. The neighborhood is safe and there is some places to eat on the 2nd Avenue. There was a good market on the 45th St between 2nd and 3rd.
The staff is rude. Some of them was kind, but most were stupid.
The wifi doesn´t work in the room, you ought to go down to the lobby if you want surf the net.
Good points: there is a laundry (of course, you have to pay for using it). They allow you to leave the lugagge (you pay $2 for each bag). They give you water for free in a water machine located in the corridor and they have air conditioner in the room.
Bad points: a youth hotel and too much noise. There were no cortains in the windows and so there were too much light in the room.
