This place did its job for the price. If it were any more expensive, it would get fewer stars... You are compromising on some things by staying here.
Yes, the rooms are small, but this is the concept and was expected, and they do a good job of getting everything into that space. The room had all amenities I would expect. It was clean except for unsightly mold stains in the sink.
It was in a decent location with a lot of good food and drink options within walking distance. It could be a tad closer to the subway though.
The staff were generally unprofessional in the way that they interacted - greeting (or lack there of) in the lobby, answering the phones and their general tone...
Requested a late check-out and the response was literally, "OK, that'll be 50 dollars." Needless to say, I declined.
Free Wi-Fi and free domestic calls is a plus. The 'galley' on the floor where coffee was available was convenient enough and the coffee was downright decent.
Bathrooms can be problematic when two people are sharing a room. Poops and the sounds and odors that accompany them are to be shared. The hand sink area is tight if two people are trying to get ready. And the shower has no door!! The whole floor gets soaked every time!
Beds suck! Like sleeping on the floor.
