Logistic is convenient being the structure at 100 yards from the subway and this is almost it. The lobby seems to belong at some 80's movie with all the dread, the common places are quite dirty and the noises from other rooms physically present. Windows are sealed and need quite a clening. The sheet and the towel need a "dive of faith" in assuming they are clean. Seedy is the word.

I would actually give this a 3.5 if I could. The rooms are small, and I found the bed too hard and the sheets old and worn but clean. On the other hand my room was pretty quiet, and it was not dirty. The location is great; I would avoid the fried chicken on the corner and the stale donuts at the bakery, and dinosaur bbq is great as long as you stick to the ribs. The downstairs lounge is hard to work in- but the free coffee is nice. If you don’t need a big room with workspace and a place to spread out lots of luggage, the location and the price are right. The shower does lack a shelf for soap, and the bathroom floor was old and had ground-in dirt and what looked like paint stains. If you are not fussy, not a deal-killer.

Good price for hotel in this part of Brooklyn. The location is perfect, there's a subway (R line) and Starbucks right across the street, you are in walking distance of Park Slope, Atlantic Ave shopping, Barclays Center Arena, Carroll Gardens and Prospect Park. The rooms are comfortable, practicable, and most importantly, clean. The staff is professional, flexible, helpful, sweet, and patient. I had a long stay (3 wks) and I highly recommend this hotel if you are looking for a good location in Bklyn and a stress-free stay. Thank you for a wonderful and peaceful stay at your hotel. The staff rocks!!! There is complimentary coffee and tea in the lounge area but for breakfast one can walk across the street for a fresh bagel. There are many choices for places to dine in walking distance. For longer stays there is a laundry service nearby.

I selected this hotel due to budget constraints. The room was tiny, without basic amenities. The walls are thin and not noise isolated, so I knew exactly what my neighbors were doing. The location is excellent - lots of bars, restaurants, buses and subway near by. If you can afford something better, do it

Horrible hotel. Dirty facilities. Sheets were stained and dirty and floor was disgusting. Extremely loud and noisy. Walls are paper thin and the hotel is full of partygoers who are loud and partying all night. Would not ever recommend.
