Expedia is worst for booking. I wont recommend
I was not allowed to stay and I havent received any refund. Worst trip ever. Stranded alone at midnight with no accomodations. Highly not recommended.

Great Accommodations for the Price
Best way to see NYC on the cheap. To those who complained about sharing a room with strangers, "What did you expect for $45/night?" The Brooklyn site was convenient to 3 Metro stops (at least). There is great security. But be prepared: you only get sheets, no blanket. You have to ask for towels and they are small and thin. Bring a robe because the hall bath has nowhere to hang or lay your clothes while in the shower. (They will get wet on the floor). The bathroom and halls are not airconditioned so an afternoon shower can be uncomfortable. Since you are sharing a room, you do not want to leave valuables (laptop, money, etc) in the room. Be prepared to take them with you. If you can handle all this, it is a great way to see NYC and spend your money on shows and attractions instead of on a place to sleep. PS - Dorm beds and pillows are not great. But again, you should be out enjoying NYC, not laying around in the room. By the way, I was probably the oldest guest I saw (51) not including the chaperons for youth groups staying there.
