    Basically a bath house

    Nothing at all.

    Single thin mattress on wood platform. Room in 6' wide with no ceiling, just chicken wire. Three common bathrooms per floor are disgusting. Rotting ceilings in number of areas. No elevator. Drug addicts and hookers walking round. DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!'

    Terrible nightmare

    i got to help out a friend in need.

    This place was just bad. Bed beds. Public washroom. No tv. No windows. Rude staff. Dirty. Do not book a room here unless it's your last choice and you're totally broke. I could have pocketed the cash and gotten better sleep in my car and cleaner with a packet of baby wipes. The staff was so rude I think they may have been on work release from jail. I didn't even want to shower it was so gross. I think the rest of the hotel guests may have been on meth they seemed content. For $100.00 bucks it was not money well spent. STAY AWAY.

    Cheap-ish but Noisy and Small

    The location was nice. Easy access to Subway and walkable to China Town and Little Italy. The price was affordable for staying in Manhattan. The hotel provided towels, shampoo, travel tooth brush and tooth paste. The bathrooms are shared but generally we didmt have to wait long for an opening. Also they are spacious and cleaned daily. This is a decent place if you are traveling alone and just looking for a cheap please to sleep.

    The room was very small (6'x9'). The mattress springs were squeaky and uncomfortable. There sheets and comforter were stained. Only on of the outlets worked. The room had a small fan but NO WINDOW and very little room to move around as the double bed took up most of the space. All that said our biggest complaint was the noise. There is no sound insulation. We were in a room in the middle of the hallway and we could hear talking from adjacent rooms, all of the movement in the hallway, doors opening and closing and even street noise (sirens, large trucks). If you are a light sleeper this is definitely not the place for you.

    It wasn't that bad. Don't expect the Ritz, its a hostel. They cleaned it everyday and there weren't bugs. It's a small room, but it's a single. It is loud and bright but earplugs and eyemask worked fine. They keep the windows open so it can get drafty but keeps it from getting too smelly. There are shared bathrooms but aside from early in morning it was never a problem. And there is NO elevator so your legs get a workout. But staff was great, at $44 a night for 5 nights there's not a cheaper way to stay in Manhattan, you're in heart of Chinatown and Little Italy, lots of culture and super cheap shopping. I'd stay there again.

    Terrible

    Location

    Gross bathrooms with collapsing ceilings, loud and dumb neighbors, too bright to sleep, if the A/C goes out you'll basically suffocate.
