I stayed here a couple of years ago, once on my own and once with my sister. It was completely disgusting both times. I only returned for the second time because I didn't know where to begin with searching for hostels in New York in my price range. At the time we stayed, we found out that the building used to be a brothel, hence the small rooms with room enough for a bed only. I would not be surprised if the beds are the same ones used back in the day! We never had a bedbug problem while we were there, but I can totally see why they have it now. Faulty electricals, disgusting showers, dim lit hallways and creepy staff. The thing that saved this place and gave it a hint of character was its location in NoHo. Loved that about it. Would I go back? Unlikely, seeing as they painted their walls and jacked up the price because of the new 'remodel'.
