I really like staying here but be advised that the halls are noisy and doors close loudly...there are a lot of vacationers....but if you are looking to for a safe, beautiful area, and great staff this is the best! Not a foo foo hotel but who cares you are in NYC.

This building is 100 years old but I think the owner of this property should renovate inside. The room was not maintained well, sloppy job. The metal Bunk bed was very noisy, wobbly and very difficult to get on the second level because construction of the railings.I booked semi-shared bathroom and by looking at the pictures on the website I thought the bathroom in the room .It is incorrect picture presentation. All bathrooms with the showers in the separate room along the hall and anybody on this floor can enter any off this bathrooms. .The bathrooms kept a little bit better than sleeping rooms which are very tiny. The bathrooms have a molds in the showers specially along the metal frames. One good thing it is in Manhattan and the price not bad compare to other hotels in Manhattan. It feels like you are in the prison cell.
