This place was a nightmare no bathrooms easy acessible only on the 7th floor (1 shower and toilet) 10th floor being renovated and on the 11th floor.
we were moved 4times in one night as we had been put 'on the wrong floor' and 'shouldnt have been on that floor' which was rather worrying as the other floors housed 'long term' residents who all looked like drunks and drug addicts and homeless people. Then we were put on the floor that was being renovated and we couldn't stay there either..Next put on the 7 th floor and given a dirty room finally got in to a cleaned room.
my boyfriend was racially abused in the gym showers!
The rooms weren't very clean tiny with bunk beds and a fridge ..no room to swing a cat.
the staff were pleasant and the security guard was brilliant after watching me walk round the floors looking for showers came and rescued me and pointed me in the right direction.
location was ok seconds away from the subway.
I would not stay here go to the vanderbilt one my sister was in there while we were in the harlem hostel and hers was much better.
