So, if you want to be in walking distance of most of Lower Manhattan and Midtown, and very close to the subway, this is perfect. In other words, if you only want to use the room to sleep, then it's a good option - cheap and central, although not all that clean, and really teeny weeny rooms.
Get a room as high up as possible, to avoid the traffic noise (this does seem to be knock-off handbag corner of the northern hemisphere !), and be prepared for the room to shake a bit when trains go through underneath. Reception staff were helpful, so this is perfectly acceptable for budget travellers. Wouldn't stay there in a couple, as the rooms would be claustrophobic.
You can get get the J-Z (brown) lines to JFK with just one change onto the airlink train. Took about an hour and cost $7.50 all in.
