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.

Perfect stay for some days downtown

Rooms clean and tidy. Central location with only 5 mins to union square or next subway. Little disadvantage are the shared bathrooms. But these also were very clean. Altogether very cosy place.

for short trips to NYC this place makes sense

great location, nice staff, and always quiet. one just needs a bit of patience when it comes to sharing the bathrooms, which I have lots of. for the money charged, this place gives great value.

Affordable, clean and convenient location near NYU.

We needed a place close to NYU. The staff was very friendly and service was excellent. I am really picky about having a clean room - this place exceeded my standards. It was off the main road, so it was quieter than other places we have stayed at in the past.

Location

Book this hotel if you are looking for a great location in Manhattan, just off Union Square, and just need a hotel to sleep in. The location could not be bettered. However, the actual hotel isn't the best. The rooms are very small, which is okay, but the walls are so thin that you can hear every cough and snore from your neighbouring rooms. I had to ask to be moved to another room because a neighbour snored so loud. The rooms are quite clean although i have been bitten a few times by bed bugs. There toilets are shared but is almost always free. The TV channels are mostly latin and some do not work at all. The hotel serves no food but good local areas to eat in. The staff could be friendlier. Overall, it is a small, rather charming old place. If you plan to explore new york all day and just need a hotel to sleep in, then this couldn't be bettered for the price and location.

Good place

Good deal and location only two blocks from Union Square. Plenty of little stores around, quiet neighborhood, quiet hotel in general (perfect for a good sleep after a whole day exploring NYC), good soundproofing... one of the only hotels where I haven't heard any noise from the rooms next to mine, helpful staff, the hotel feels small and cozy. Bathrooms are shared but I never had to wait and they were kept clean. If you're looking for an affordable place to sleep and are out all day, this place is perfect.
