After trying to find somewhere as cheap as possible for 3 of us to stay in New York for 10 nights and struggling, we came across this gem. Turned up at about 1am with all our luggage and had absolutely no idea where it was, because the entrance is listed as a synagogue. However after buzzing to get in, one of the guys let us in (who was lovely and helpful) showed us to our room.
We had one out of two bedrooms in an apartment, which included a kitchenette, bathroom, a couple of chairs and a PC with free internet! We were sharing the apartment with a couple of Swiss girls and was no problem at all. We had a single bed and then stairs to a mezzanine bit in the room with a double mattress (quite close to the ceiling). Had a TV and air con which was an added bonus as this wasn't expected.
The price we paid was ridiculously cheap and this is the best bargain we have ever found! Really good location, a few blocks from the subway (about 10 mins walk) but still in walking distance of pretty much everything (Midtown, Central Park etc). Not the most amazingly comfortable or romantic place to stay but all we did was sleep there and we were out all day anyway, so was perfect. Would definitely recommend!
