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.
Gross bathrooms with collapsing ceilings, loud and dumb neighbors, too bright to sleep, if the A/C goes out you'll basically suffocate.
Just position and price are good.
clean in room and very very small
no elevator On constructing For one sentence, This is not a HOTEL Backpackers is better than this
What an unusual place! You walk up four long flights, get a bright and clean though windowless cell, find acceptable bathrooms down the hall, and wonder if it's a good idea. The room has tiny cabinet, light, plugs, mattress, sheets, blanket, pillow, trashcan. You were given soap and shower slippers. The floor is locked and your room is locked. Hardware screen for a ceiling to make the HVAC common to all 80 cells and it works well. A number of students with backpacks giving it a hostel feel, though the lower floors have the same design though much older and occupied by local Chinese. Apparently the design is a tenament style housing for single men. Very interesting. Unusual value for Manhattan. Safe. Don't go for the view.
Proximity to china town
It's worst Hotel which I have come across in my life and it's zero return for money. The rooms were extremely small with roof top open, you cannot speak to anyone being in room. Bathrooms were extremely dirty and wet and no soaps, showers were extremely slow. No Toilet papers, common bathrooms are many but all are occupied cause they have 55 rooms on same floor. Which are shared by everyone. I will never recommend an individual for this room. But the guy at reception was very good. Around the street I came across two guys who have done the booking for same Hotel but at mid-night 2:30 am they were denied room as their Room was given to someone else. So overall extremely poor hotel, without any facilities, open roofs (there's iron mesh which is roof of some 55 rooms) but can be good for students who cannot afford more money from china:-)
You get exactly what you pay for, a very safe, clean and very, very small room about 4 feet wide and 6 feet long. But that is exactly what I wanted, plus an internet connected computer at the end of the hall. Also very, very quiet.
Stairway was a bit dirty and there was no elevator up to 5th floor.
room as cheap
They put me in a cheaper room (that i didn't reserve) and charged me for the room I booked. they filled up all the rooms so i was unable to switch.
Certainly a value for money choice because I could only stay for a few hours there.
Distint (urine) smell in the staircase accessing to the hotel.
The hotel is right in Chinatown, which is one of the most vibrant and interesting neighbourhoods of New York City. There are some great restaurants around.
Read the facilities description carefully: these rooms are about 1.5 x 2 metres -- more like renting a shelf than a room. The bathrooms are shared, and there are no elevators. Perfectly fine for the budget-minded single traveller, but be sure you're comfortable with this!
I very wondered, because I charged twice for this hotel: the first I charged after reservation and the second I charged when check-in. I'm very wondered and it's very horrible!
I would rather sleep outside than sleeping in this hotel
