Pay more elsewhere if you want comfort...
I feel a little misled by the ad for this hotel. Even their website has misleading photos, making three place look like a Holiday Inn or something. I was there with my 16 year old daughter.... "Just a place to lay our heads" we told ourselves, as the reviews weren't brilliant. However I wasn't prepared for how bad it was. It wasn't particularly unhealthy, just so terribly uncomfortable and sparse. Bad decorative order, cold, no tv, our mattress was thin and worm, you have to ask reception for anything i.e. extra pillow/hairdryer/put the heating on etc. (There is NOTHING to hand in three rooms) In retrospect, I should've paid another hundred or so pounds and stayed at a Holiday Inn. But we loved our NYC stay, just lost tons of sleep in this, well it isn't a hotel, it is a youth hostel at best. Positives - The shower rooms were clean and the showers good. The female staff there are helpful. The common areas are cleaned daily. There is a supermarket, cafe and pharmacy right on your doorstep. It is a ten minute walk to the subway. Please don't be fooled, the prices are cheap, and non refundable, but this is a youth hostel, and nothing more.

A New York experience
I was not sure what to expect with the rooms described as semi private but if you know what to expect it is acceptable for the price on Manhattan. The location is good and you can walk to Downtown and Midtown. I even walked as far as Central Park. You can also see the Empire State Building from the window. The window of the staircase, not room as they aren't any, built cell like in a large room with chicken wire ceilings allowing the air conditioning to blow down. The A/C was really too cold and the fan quite noisy but at least it blocked out the noise of other guests since there is little noise insulation. One night when it was too cold for the A/C I had a more interrupted sleep. Some mornings the toilets were dirty / blocked but that is more to do with other guests not knowing how to use them and the staff did get them clean. Overall though, OK for the price.

not a hotel
This is NOT a hotel its not even a hostel, its more like a cell, there's a reason there are no pictures of the rooms as no one would choose to stay here if they did, the room was generally clean but I couldn't sleep the first night as there's a light constantly on and as the cells are open to the roof (wire mesh covers the ceiling) I used ear plugs so I couldn't hear my neighbors but the constant presence of light meant I didn't get much sleep so I stayed one night and then stayed somewhere else for the other 2 nights as the room was non refundable. I think it would have been fine if I was steaming drunk and could pass out anywhere but I wasn't, you get what you pay for I'd advise its a good cheap option but bring earplugs and eye masks or Valium.

The room is tiny. Just for sleep The hotel is very well located No intimacy as the roof is open over all rooms. Some showers are clean.
