    The beds are very uncomfortable.

    Impressed--highly recommended for solo travelers on a short visit to N

    Pretty much everything...loved the HDMI inputs on the wall, the awesome bathroom, the responsive AC, and of course, the staff.

    Nothing not to like...this is basically a well-managed upscale hostel with superior private rooms. I would totally recommend some tweaks for the designers, mainly to install a shelf on the wall near the LCD screen to maximize vertical space. I would also suggest a water kettle as an optional in-room item as I travel with my own cup and tea and missed this feature.

    Perfect place to lay your head. Solo traveler also perfect. Didn’t need much room & conveniently in Manhattan. Walking distance to Time Square.

    I will book this hotel again

    The price is unbeatable and the hotel is simple, clean and centrally located. Remember, this is NYC!!! Unbelievably affordable to spend some time in the Big Apple! Perfect for a no-thrills solo traveler.

    The USB port in the room didn't work so that I couldn't charge my phone. But it actually felt good to leave the phone in the hotel room and explore the neighborhood without social media. Quite the vacation and interesting to observe the people around you being glued to technology.

    Everything you need and not a cubic inch more.

    The location and the value for money were unmatchable as far as I have been able to tell. The beds were comfortable and the staff were all exceedingly pleasant.

    The bathroom isn’t really suited for families as there’s only a slim glass partition between you, so unless you’re creative you can hear and smell everything. The sink is also faulty and can disconnect easily. But there’s toilets downstairs and who even washes their hands anymore?
