Recommended for: travelers looking for just a place to spend the night at
Not recommended for: people who are looking for a nice and extra clean place to hang out at
I was in NYC for a quick visit, was looking for a place to host me just during the night as I would be busy most of the day.
I found this place online and I booked my room, I have to say, I was a bit worried, specially about the shared bathroom but here's what I experienced.
The room is fair, it can accommodate 1-2 people
View is nice
Location is excellent and close to almost everything you might need, specially that Union Square is a walking distance from it, from which you can take a subway to almost anything you need
ACs are good
Cleanness is fair
The shared bathroom was fairly clean most of the time, but you can't take my word or anyone's word for that matter, because it depends entirely on the people living in the floor, I happened to be around people who appreciate clean bathrooms (two bathrooms for each floor)
Prices are fair for a place in Manhattan
One of my favorite parts was the elevator, I called him Stoned Joe, you will know what I mean if you try it a couple of times :)
Will I go there again? Absolutely
