Service : The staff was super helpful, friendly and knowledgeable, just a pleasure to meet
Value : you wont get anything cheaper in NY, the place is extra clean, there are 3 common bathrooms with shower on the floor and you get a complimentary soap. There is also a kitchen equipped with a vending machine, a sink and a microwave, those as well were super clean. You get a private small fridge in your room.
Sleep Quality: The rooms have bunk beds and its not a tempurpedic mattress, it's more the type of beds you get in summer camp but still comfy. Im very sound sensitive so I do sleep with ear plugs, if you do not, the sounds of the street (honking) or even other residents passing in the hallways might bother you. Just bring ear plugs.
Cleanliness : I was actually shocked on how clean everything was (rooms, kitchen and bathrooms). 10/10 for cleanliness!
Location: Its at one stop over from the subway station and there are really good cheap eats (try the tropical grill, nearby)
Rooms : Our room was super small, we needed to maneuver our way in and out of the room because 2 people didn't pass from the end of the room to the door. I did see other rooms that were bigger (don't get room 1024, that's the closet-sized one). You also have a mini fridge to keep your food in each room.
Room Service: well none but hey, you get to use the Y facilities like the pool for free
Spa: I think the pool has a sauna :)
Wifi: you can use the wifi only on the lobby floor, it doesn't really get to the 10th. They also have PC you can use at 10 cents a minute and print pages for 50 cents a page.
Keep in mind this is Manhattan and to find something this cheap would probably mean far from the city, or bug infested or worst, if you are a budget traveler, this is the best place to be, it will remind you of school dorms.
