I was there on a small budget so I saved a whole lot. I expected the room to be just a little bigger because the pictures on their site are taken at a very wide angle. There was construction going on so it smelled like paint. I guess it was wrong timing. The bathrooms didn't have handsoap! I had to...

I stayed here for one night and that was enough. Given the price ,75 dollars, for a double room, I had low expectations. The positives were the place was clean, the room was ready, and the staff was friendly. The negatives were the room was quite shabby and depressing looking. The shared bath was even more dilapidated. No way that...

The bathrooms are dirty and are not cleaned well on a daily basis. The same hair and q-tip was on the floor for three days! There is only internet on the first floor so there is always people in the hallway and the entrance is crowded. The Hallways are usually strewn with litter and need to be vacuumed. The rooms...

First things first, this is not a hotel - its a hostel. That might not be a problem for you, it wasn't for me, but it's good to be honest, no? The price of this place was so reasonable that it seems foolish to claim it was terrible, what do you expect for paying next to nothing? The rooms come...

We reserved a room using the hotel's website. We chose ensuite with private bathroom. When we arrived, we were informed that no room with private bathroom was available for either of the nights we booked, so unless we wanted to look for a different hotel in NYC with our luggage that evening we had to accept that one with a...

Before I begin, ignore the pictures, they must have been airbrushed as the lobby and rooms look nothing like this! I only wish I'd taken some pictures to email expedia. Lots of complaints on here about the hotel, I don't know what people expect for such a low price. We booked via expedia for a double room with shared bath...

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
