“So overwhelmingly impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2010

I was a bit wary of this apartment rental because it seemed suspiciously cheap for the Upper East Side and there weren't many reviews. Man, did this place exceed my expectations!!
I went with two friends and we stayed in a private room with a full/single bunk and a full loft bed. We had a kitchenette a sofa and an armchair in the sitting area and a spacious bathroom with a tub. All for a cool $100 and change a night. There was even a huge closet in the bedroom and one in the sitting area. Unheard of for NYC!
The place looks to be newly renovated, with appliances in good shape, a new microwave, two! flatscreen TVs and a desktop computer with free internet.
The area isn't exactly the Upper East Side you see in movies or Gossip Girl, but it's completely safe and only about 6 blocks from the subway. We walked to Grant Park almost everyday.
This is an amazing little place and you should go here before the owners get enough positive feedback and bookings to raise their prices!!
Best $100 room you will find in NYC. Trust me, I've been looking.

The price was great! We arrived around 11:30pm, and the room we originally booked was filled so we got a room with no lock. however, the people saring our common area were really nice and it didn't turn out to be a problem. There was a computer just outside the room with a full kitchen and the bathroom was pretty clean, so i couldnt have asked for more considering the price. In the room there was a single bed, and than you had to climb up a ladder to get to the double bed. There wasn't enough room to sit up in bed, so we ended up sleeping on the single bed which accomodated two people ok. The walls were bare except of a tv, but overall I would stay there again if I was on a budget.

We stayed at York St apartments for over a week and did enjoy staying there but the apartments probably wouldn't suit everyone. Not a social hostel at all just a place to do your own thing. We really liked having the desktop computer and free wifi. The kitchen and two bathrooms on our floor were cleaned each day and the place never felt overcrowded.

The area seemed really safe however it was a 15 minute walk to the subway.

We recommend you ask for a room with the double bed that's not on the mezanine - as if you get at all claustraphobic you wouldn't like sleeping on the mezanine as its only a couple of feet from the roof so you can't really sit up straight. Also, there is no railing on the edge of the mezanine, so don't sleep here if you tend to roll out of bed!

Other down sides include the very thin walls (think they are actually wardrobe doors) so you can definitely hear your neighbours (and if you sleep on mezanine you can hear people on the floor above). We also did not receive good service from the hostel manager who told us we could check out in the morning at 8 but wasn't there when we tried to do so!

However, all in all we had a good stay as we don't mind noise and really just wanted and safe and clean place to crash after a day out in wonderful NYC!
