Single Girl On Her First Trip to NYC

Overall it was a great stay. Shared bathrooms were almost always available on my 4 night stay and it was really quiet. The neighborhood was really quite domestic which I did not expect. Honestly the Hotel is older so you have the peeling wallpaper and old appliances with a slightly lumpy mattress but I was overall pleased with the convenience and the price.

Cute Affordable Hotel in East Village

Great value for the money. The rooms are tiny, shared showers in the hall, but hey, for way under $100 you're really near Union Square in a great walking and exploring neighborhood. Staff was kind and helpful.

Great value for our stay in New York

My son and I had a triple room, for $150/night (including taxes), free Wi-Fi, in an excellent, very safe location. Staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Easy walk to subway, nice quiet neighborhood, central location. Excellent value for our trip. We were able to get wherever we wanted to go, by subway, within minutes. Room was very clean, shared bathrooms were just fine - we never had to wait. Soap and shampoo provided. It was everything we needed at an excellent price for New York.

Tiny Room But Awesome Location

The room was tiny but clean. The neighborhood was great with tons of eating options. I felt totally safe walking around at bight. The only negative was that the front desk people weren't always the nicest. The rest of the staff was wonderful though.

Do not stay there unless...

...you don't mind coming home to a cold shower after a day walking in the freezing city! Not only was the shower cold (and yet, I was repeatedly told that there WAS hot water...), but I was there for work and needed wifi but couldn't connect to it from my room. There's no lobby where you can go and use it. The TV had no channel at all during the 6 days I spent there. I was told it was a temporary problem... The heater was off during the day and the room was freezing until about 9 pm, when it then became like a sauna because you can't regulate the temperature. I knew I was going to have to share the floor bathroom but I expected to have a sink in my room; however, I did not have one. So, yes, it is quite cheap, but not *that* cheap. So, I would recommend staying somewhere else if you can spend a few more dollars and want a minimum of comfort. Some of the front desk staff were really nice and helpful, though. Also, location is great.

I was apprehensive about sharing the bathroom but it was across from my room and always available. Firm mattress.
