Liked: Its a really safe hotel in a beautiful and safe neighbourhood. Its really peaceful as well.

Disliked: Only improvement I can point out is about bathroom, its like a one personal toilet n bath for entire floor so its bound to be a little unhygienic but I could do with it coz considering its price and location, its a brilliant deal.

01 July 2015

Liked: It was a bed to sleep in - cheaper than most hostels.

Disliked: The place is filthy. The "cleaners" don't clean the bathrooms at all and they just barge in to your room without knocking. Also, a lot of the floor tiles are loose so there's a bit of a health and safety concern there, as well as the lights in the bathrooms are dangerous. This should be reported. Also, the staff couldn't care less about the guests. They are just sitting in a chair listening to music with headphones in their ears while they talk to you. And one staff member had brought her son to work which meant you had to listen to crying and screaming in the lobby constantly and witness her smacking him constantly. Very concerning!!!

Liked: The rooms were good value for money and it was in a good location. If like me you aren't too bothered with niceties it is OK for a few nights. The staff are lovely and really helpful.

Disliked: It needs some general repair and cleaning. The bathrooms are run down and need some serious cleaning but were OK with flip flops on.

Liked: The location and proximity to the subway was great. The air conditioner in the rooms were also a definite life saver.

Disliked: I stayed on the second floor and there were only two washrooms. One had a burnt out lightbulb leaving us all to the one bathroom after dusk.

Liked: Staying in a classic building in a great location, close to subway

Disliked: No wifi apart from kitchen/lounge. The place isn't clean nor safe. Two shared bathrooms on my floor; one with no curtain on the window (with a glass panel between shower and window) and nil water projection with a broken soap dispenser, second with nil light and has a growing hole in ceiling from wet rotting. Room window had large hole beside air conditioner making the room hot and easy access for bugs and birds. Room swipe keys are not room specific; able to open multiple doors and therefore no protection. Not all lockers able to be locked. Kitchen doesn't even have a toaster.

03 June 2015 Aryma Ada would recommend this property

Liked: - It has an elevator (rare thing in NYC); - The bedroom on 1st floor (102) is really good, if you can, book this one!! - The guys from the front desk are very helpful, specially Arthur, you can always count on him; - 3 subway lines really close to the hostel (1, C e D); - If you need to print something, the have printers (you'll have to pay for it but it's not so expensive); - Close to Central Park; - The price is OK for Manhattan.

Disliked: - Most of the bathrooms have a big window right in front of the shower and the sanitary so be careful with that, specially if you're on the 3th floor; - WIFI only on first floor; - Upper West Side is beautiful but extremely expensive, there's no much thing to do over there and it's far from Downtown NYC, which is the best part; - Some of the staffs are really rude and stressful, specially the lady that cleans the stuffs, she is ALWAYS on a bad mood; - The "breakfast" (if you can really call it that) is the wrost ever, only bread, sometimes they put butter and sometimes they put coffee instead tea. - There's no forks, spoons or knifes after the breakfast, if you need to cook after this time you'll need to have your own things to do it. Even if you ask they won't give anything to you. - The laundry costs 2 dollars, each machine, which is pretty expensive considering that I used to pay less when I was living on UES. And if you dont have Tide they sell one cup of it also for 2 dollars. - It's easy to see cockroaches in the bedrooms and bathrooms.

Liked: Rooms are for 2 people so there is enough space, breakfast is ok but for the price they could offer more. The area is super nice, very close from subway and the Museum of natural History, but far from midtown.

Disliked: It's an old building and elevators are so small, it's difficult to get in with your luggage and the doors are so heavy and hard to open. It's super expensive, I paid like 65 dollars per night and it's too much for what they offer, but I think it's the same in NYC.

Liked: I liked the location. The staff was really friendly.

Disliked: It was really old and with a lot of things broken (like floor, walls, ceiling) and the worst was that everything was quite dirty. No curtain in the restroom window. The bed wasn't in good condition. The lockers are too small. It is supossed that american breakfast is included. They only offer white bread, butter (a piece for everyone) and fruit jelly. Even the milk is a big bottle of powdered milk. There is only a table for every one to have breakfast.

Liked: The room was exactly as described; the staff was very helpful, polite and always friendly; the location was perfect, just a block away from the metro station, and with various restaurants and pubs close by. There was a laundry room available and a spacious comunal room.

Disliked: The bathroom available was a shared one, I would have prefered a private one; but it was always clean, so it was alright.
