My Boyfriend and I booked this place on the last night of our travels together . As we had been traveling the US a month staying mostly in hostels we wanted a private room for our last night . But oh man this was not the right place . The only space in the " private rooms" is literally for the bed ( And I would consider it a King Single at best ) The walls Don't go right to the top and the space in the hallway is probably not even a foot across. There is no privacy and one hears every noise in the entire place . In the end we could only laugh about it and now refer to it jovially as " the rabbit hutch " however do not stay here . It may seem cheaper than other places but totally not worth it . Another downside is that the Soho area of Manhattan is really swanky and you'll find it hard to find affordable restaurants slash food in any form in the vicinity.. The service was also terrible , had to hand key in when we went out which felt very arbitrary and strange . The washing machine area was like a prison and stunk really bad.
