Awesome stay

I would recommend this place to anyone travelling on a budget. It has everything you need, conveniently located, and it is a bargain. The only complaint I have is that doors slam when people open or close them. The noise is so loud that it will wake you up. Other than that, it's clean, it has a kitchen, laundry facility, you can use the gym and pool while you are there. It's close to Broadway and 5th Avenue.

Not Worth The Money

Obviously we weren't expecting luxury but this hostel was even worse than we imagined. Booming heater stayed on all night to prevent all sleep, beds were uncomfortable and room was old with mould growing. Window structure had holes which let in air. Bathrooms were in bad condition and shower had no hot water. Only stay here if there is nothing else. Area was safe but everything shuts early as it is in the financial area but it is close to transit. Very surprised this place is even offered.

Basic accom - needs new bed springs

Well located n cheap so don t expect service or good beddings. If you are a fusspot or wife is fastidious about decor , tell her the savings go towards a broadway show! You don t even get a sink in the room Location is tops for the money you pay but no g tee of a good nite sleep in view of smallness of room n bad mattresses .good luck

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

A bit out of the way for the theatre district (20 minute walk) but close to Grand Central. Very convenient.

Good safe budget option

A good compromise between a hostel dorm and a budget chain hotel. Rooms are very small (bunkbed style for most). Basin in room but shared bathrooms and showers at the end of each floor (and not all floors have private shower stalls, a bit high school gym retro). But rooms were safe, and staff always asked to see keys for each person going up in the elevator, so security was a plus. Location is away from Times Square area, but only 10 mins walk from Grand Central and 5th Avenue.

Great, cheap place in Manhattan!

It was a great location for a cheap hotel in Manhattan. Couldn't beat it! We used the room just to sleep and shower, facilities were clean, have access to the gym. Dorm style, but didn't have to wait to use the shower or and bathroom facilities. Cleaning and fresh sheets were done daily.
