I was very skeptical about staying in this hotel for two reasons: the negative reviews and the shared bathroom. I will do my best to describe my full experience. First of all the location was great , subway stop nearby (although I didn't use the subway at all), restaurants and bars as well. Many people had an issue with the employees at the front desk, but I found them to be very friendly and helpful when I asked for directions. Second, I was assuming I was going to walk in to a dorm room. It was not at all like that. I was traveling solo and the single room/ w shared bathroom was amazing. I read reviews that stated when the luggage was out there was no space to walk in the room, and that was definitely not the case with me. I had enough space to lay out 8 days worth of clothing and my work materials. Now last but not least, the shared bathroom, this is the first time I share a bathroom with just about anyone, I was more than extremely skeptical to share a bathroom with a stranger, and it was not at all a problem. There was always one available, there were 2 on my floor, the bathroom were always cleaned, and space wise they were perfect enough to lay out all my bathing creams. Over all the hotel was great ! I would definitely stay here again, the price was the best I could get in this area, and everyone was extremely helpful !
