Excellent location, spacious room with plenty of chairs and storage. Its so nice to have places where to put your stuff in (most hostels don’t). There are plenty of bathrooms, which is very convenient. I also liked that there was a lounge/kitchen which allows you do cook and keep food in a fridge. This is definitely a plus for backpackers, as it allows you to save money since eating out at NYC gets really expensive.
The front desk is not always being attended. Its supposed to be 24/7 but more than once I had to wait a significant amount of time for any given thing I needed from there. The entrance is always open and not card activated how it says, that plus an inattentive front desk makes it easy for an intruder to come inside. The bathrooms are finely equipped but very poorly maintained, some have leaks, some don’t have a garbage bin or toilet paper. One of the dryers wasn’t working either. I had to use three different bathrooms to do everything I needed to do (one was OK to shower in, one was OK to do my business in, one was OK to dry my hands in, etc).
It was as calm no noise and the location was just great
The heating wasn’t working in the room, in winter! And the duvet was a summer blanket.
Only access to building landmarks of NY.
Very old building and too much small lift only two persons., and many many more problems
Good value for the price in mid-town Manhatten. Definitely for the traveller who needs a place to sleep and shower and not much more! I was on the top bunk in a shared room and never met my roommate even though we slept a metre apart! Kitchen facilities are clean and simple ...a few steps up from camping. Lots of places to eat, caffeinate and shop just steps away and it's Manhatten so transportation isn't an issue.
I found my room a bit cold and the temp. Is managed by the landlord so was grateful for extra blankets at the front desk.
