    Exhausting night!!!

    First to begin with, I got to NYC quite comfortably!! Then disaster stricks!! I book the hotel through Expedia at the last minute. That part went well with the customer service agent. But we had trouble finding this supposedly hotel, I was given the wrong street number for the place and here I am riding around this neighborhood at 1am in the morning to find this place after about two hours we finally found the this place. This place is the noisest place ever, the attendant at the property made my night and that of my 11 year child, very uncomfortable and unsafe. The attendant kept banging on the entrance door about deadbolt being locked on the door at least twice between 2 -4am.The toilet flushed all night long!! No tissue!! And the sheet was terribly itchy!! The place is just bad for business and I was over charged. I felt as if I was sleeping on the streets and at least I would of felt better knowing that I have to deal with what's outside.

    do not recommend at all

    not good. .


    its okay

    You get what you pay for. I had my own room and it was okay. Don't expect anything average.

    Pros: The beds were okay and the people were okay.

    Cons: Get the reservations and people who work their more organized.

    Location: I stayed in Brooklyn and there was housing in my area. You have to go further to find things. It was residential in my area.


    Do not stay here

    It was terrible not only is there no signage for the hostel, you can't get in without a code which makes it very hard to check in. I tried calling the number provided to me over 11 times and got called back over an hour later after waiting in one of the kitchens after someone let me in. The staff were very unfriendly and I had to pay in cash. Another lady in my room from New York City did not think it was advisable for myself (a young female single) to go outside after dark on my own. When I arrived my linen had not been changed and the pillow I was provided with was from a sofa and very dirty. There were also no lockers or safes to secure any valuables so I did not feel as though I could get settled. I have stayed in hostels all over the USA and Canada and this was by far the worst. I would never stay here ever again it was so terrible. I would not suggest it for anyone, even if you are on a budget stay somewhere else I recommend HI NYC.

    Pros: Nothing at all.

    Cons: Everything could be improved especially the bathrooms and kitchen were disgusting, it looked as though they had never been cleaned.

    Location: It was not in a very nice location and did not feel safe at all. It was a long subway ride to anywhere.

    4/5 Good

    Transitioning from Europe back to America

    It was cool, and my roomies were cool. I didn't have problem because I just need a place to lay my head while my apartment was getting sorted and everything was booked in the city. But I'm all chill when it comes to things like this...I would stay again
