  • This is a fine choice for a budget traveler. The room I had was basic but clean, and had its own sink. The shared toilet and shower were also very clean. They also provide a pretty generous breakfast. The location is across the street from a police station and within a couple of blocks of a subway. Since all I want from an accommodation is safety, cleanliness, and heat in winter, this facility is fine.

  • Spartan single room but it seemed clean and the radiator will keep you toasty during winter. The shared toilet and shower were clean when I used them. Bring earplugs and eyeshades. The small narrow hallways resonate with noise and the blinds barely darken the room. The biggest downside was the warped mattress. It was crushed in the middle and slanted to one side. The simple breakfast of one bagel and fruit is fine. Overall a decent option due to the location.

  • Check in clerk was rude and sarcastic. Check out clerk was friendly. Cockroaches in the room. Breakfast was resectable to start the day. Area brochures were numerous and helpful. Entry door from the street is unlocked is unlocked during the day until 11pm and at times tied wide open while the desk area is not with within sight of the door. Nice location to the subway. No chair in the room. Facilities are minimum. Very good heat in the room. Common area television had poor reception.

  • Friendly guests, clean room. Value is a relative term. In NYC, it seems this outrageous price is good value, LOL. At least the best I could find.

  • El hotel lo que tiene de bueno es la localización. Esta en pleno Chelsea cerca de todo. El desayuno regular, un bagel, una fruta, jugo y cafe. El servicio de WI-FI excelente. En mi caso contrate habitación privada con baño compartido. La habitación estaba Ok, salvo que no estaba del todo limpia. El colchón muy flojo, no se logra un buen descanso.

  • My home in NYC. I like this because the location is easily accessible and the hostel has late check out, noon! When you stay here you also qualify for the breakfast, mainly a bagel and a piece of fruit. Adequate to start the day. When you stay here, you will also see they are cleaning it all the time. I have never seen a bug here. Since I have stayed here a number of times, that may indicate to you it has a lot going for it. Any amenity you look for, it is probably at this hostel.

  • The room we were given is nothing but a jail. Given the cost, the comfort is inexistent. Ventilation and cleanness leave a lot to be desired. The breakfast is too little, which is a good thing given that it is disgusting.
