Rooms are clean, new bedding daily. Walls don't extend to the underside of the ceiling so it can get a bit noisy. Showers and toilets (Toilets have no locks) are frosted glass so not much privacy. Fantastic kitchen for self-catering. Would recommend.

I have traveled more than a month around US, and this one was the worst I have stayed. One of NY subway line is located in the hotel street (above the ground), only few meters from the rooms, the train passes every 10-15 during the day/night with terrible noise. I ordered "private", in my opinion the room is not private...

They know how to TAKE the reservation, but they don't know how to HOLD the reservation. I stayed here two nights ago. Online, I booked a 3 bed room with a private bathroom, paid a bit of a premium for this. When I got there, they said you get whatever room is available upon arrival. NOT happy about this. Why...

I stayed for a week, the building is typical of Brooklyn thats why walls in rooms do not reach the ceiling, is also a subject of heating. The bathrooms are always clean and the rooms are small but comfy, clean and include towels. The Marcy Av station is very close making easy to move to Manhattan. Negatives: the social area...

My friend and I stayed in a 2 person room (had initially booked a 6 person but they upgraded us which was nice). However the room was very small and the walls didn't reach the ceiling! So there was no privacy and you could hear everything from neighbouring rooms. The worst thing was the bathrooms which had frosted glass cubicles...

This student residence is located in a very dirty neighborhood with piles of garbage on every corner, the train noise is going through the heads of passers and grinds in the ears of the guests. There is not a neat place to eat or a decent tenant, they all seem to hate life. It becomes a disgusting experience walking and...

They will cancel your reservation and not tell you until you show up, then blame Expedia or anyone except them. Big gap between the walls and ceiling and a train going past feet away; NOISY. No AC. One bathroom per floor. Avoid at all costs.
