Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
I would stay there again for sure. The room is tiny but was really good for a couple. I would not recommend it with more than just a couple. The room was very clean (I wore white socks and they weren’t dirty). The elevator was kinda wonky but I’m sure they can get that fixed. For the price and the location it was excellent.

You get what you pay for. Bed was hard and uncomfortable. Room was very small and let’s not talk about the bathroom that was in the room lol. It was my first time in New York so I didn’t know what to expect.

The place aesthetics were nice and juvenile. The room was small but well set up. The price was what interested us. However, the biggest problem was that the entire floor, with 30 rooms had to share 3 toilettes and showers. It is, at minimum, uncomfortable and unhygienic. I will not go back to a hotel with shared restrooms.

It was small but cute and clean there was no parking on the property which kinda sucked and the employees weren’t so welcoming but beside that it was nice and comfortable.

I liked their central and convenient location but I did not like the fact that they are still holding my $5 deposit which I still do not know what is it for!
