The lobby looks beautiful but it can't help my experience staying at this hotel No AC, my room even don't have a ceiling fan and I have to request a fan. The photo of the lobby is trying to seduce us to think the hotel is that good but it is NOT. The room is small, old although the shared bathroom is quite clean ( better than the private one) We got a room with private bathroom so the room is so small and we don't even have enough space to walk. The bathroom is really old although clean
Great place to stay if you are traveling alone to NYC Na
you expect little of a hostel in N-Y city and this one made the $40 a lot more than just a night in a budget accomodation! I have been in far more expensive hostels in the City and they are no match for this one. Definitely recommended.
+ Convenient location near 1 line or just a bit further to B and C lines + Locker was larger enough for 1 backpack, a grocery bag of stuff, and a medium-sized duffel bag. And still extra room, too! + All staff I encountered were really nice and helpful! + I left my pants in the shower stall for probably over 12 hours and they ended up in the lost and found. What a bonus! + Chargers *inside* the lockers and near the bed are super helpful and pretty safe
Location is great for ne I don't remember the last time I overheard that many people complained that the staff really don't care. It felt like the staff were just there to collect their paycheck and it's a job they really don't care about as they have something better to do
location The horrible staff that "blacklisted" me being a New York state resident. I was also unimpressed by the clogged toilets full of feces and the obvious hard drug use among the staff. They seemed to make a sport out of making guests feel and unwelcome and intimidated; as if I was checking in as an inmate. "Blacklist" or not, I would rather sleep in the snow than come back here.
There were some kind of blood mark in one of the bed sheets.Also found one spider in the corner of the room. Except these two remaining everything was above expectations.
dirty, smelly, discusting
The friendly ppl who work there great atmosphere felt like a home away from home Nope
Wifi and even a a computer with guest account provide internet access. There's a fridge too. Beyond that, beds ad narrow rooms n a very basic state. Even if decently cleaned, it looks miserable. AirCond very noisy but not effective.
There is nothing that I liked about this hostel. I had a lay over of 10 hours at JFK and I didn't want to spend the night at the airport.... But after I arrived to the hostel I felt that I should have stayed at the airport. The pictures they show on the website are a total lie. There is no free breakfast and they charged me 10 dollars for the shuttle, when the site says its free...I wouldn't call it a Hostel. It's a two bedroom small apartment behind the Super 8 Motel. The staff was rude and unfriendly. The sheets had hair strands all over, there is no kitchen, and is very hard to sleep with all the noise coming from the upstairs apartments and the ones next door...
I stayed in many hostels before but this was by far the worst. It looked like an odinary resident house was remodelled to be a hostel, so for example in the kitchen some beds were separated only by a curtain. And the bathroom was really tiny for all the rooms. The rooms were really hot with poor conditioning. The matresses look filthy, in yellow spots over, the linen looked the same. Overall, a really bad experience except for the Super 8 reception and airport shuttle. Rooms, bathroom, linen etc
It was very nice, that you have computer at the hostel + TV + it's 3min from subway. It was a litle bit uncomfortable to know, that any body who knows the pass for intrance in your hostel (when I was trying to get inside the gay from second flor from the same building told me that pass) can get in it.
Very near jfk It was written that bf was included, I needed to pay 5 usd extra!
The close proximity to Manhattan (i.e. the short trip from the Roosevelt subway stop) and the low nightly rate are the most attractive features of the Kamay Lodge. The rooms were not spotless but were surprisingly cleaner than I expected. I still brought my sleeping bag and placed it on top of the bedding. The neighborhood is super sketchy.
staff very courteous and effective. Rooms had Wi-Fi very, very shabby
Location is very good The front desk staff are far from been friendly The bed is very small The restroom and the bathroom accessory are in very poor condition. Water pressure is low and the temperature of it vary from ice cold to burning hot without touching the faucets
The location was perfect as we were across the street from Central Park, close to Lincoln Center, Columbus Square, and other great cites in the city. The staff was very friendly, and I appreciated the fact that there was a security desk in the lobby. The beds were surprisingly comfortable for being bunk beds and the room was very quiet as our window faced away from the street. The shared bathroom and showers were a bit of a challenge, but, considering the price, wasn't too bad just inconvenient.
Sheets and a blanket was a pleasent surprise! Also cleaning every day was luxury thing. Room was warm and the hallways were in good condition. Bed was comfy too. Staff in helpful and you can enter the guesthouse anytime. The toilet at the 9th floor is hidious. There was some little bugs flying, I thought that okay whatever, but when I saw a cocroach I thought this is too much. You can use the swimming pools showers and toilets, they are renovated and in excellent condition.
For my trouble I was given 2 entries to empire state building. Room floor was never cleaned. When I arrived I was given a room that was not clean. The second room was horribly noisy at night, it was in front of the elevator and the was a noise of something dropping inside a pipe. The third room I was in was in a floor being refurbished. This floor was very good but very noisy around 9 pm. After 1 night in the third room I was told I had to change. The manager wanted to give us 2 bunker beds and we are a couple, we payed more to sleep together. Fourth room was kind of OK. Notice that all the doors in the hotel make a big noise so you need ear plugs to be OK.
Excellent location near Central Park, close to subway stops. One of cheapest places to stay in NYC. Single room had AC, small flat screen TV, desk and chair. Free wifi that works fairly well. Can store luggage before checking and after checking out for $2 per bag. Can use Y facilities, gym, pool, etc. Communal bathroom is usually a mess. Water on floor, sinks stopped up and horrible smell. Sometimes noisy with slamming doors so bring ear plugs just in case
I like the comfort of just walking around the city and close to subway stations, shopping area, central park and others. Staffs are very good and accomodating except the guards coz i saw a woman with stroller and baby with bags and they dont even care to open the door. I dislike other guests who does not care about other guests esp in the middle of the night.
The whole place in general is very safe and monitored. So the safety problem doesnt really exist there. The windows open to provide fresh air. Lots of bathrooms. Easy area to get out of and get to whereever you need to be. However, they have a curfew, a human body limit per room and will try to charge you for as much as possible during your stay. I had to rent a DOUBLE bed room because i had a friend stay over (which apparently isnt allowed). No food, only 99c soap to shower with and no ventelation in bathrooms. staff is rude at any chance they get and the other guests staying there weren't any better. They even charge you per bag if you want to leave your bags in the locker room.
Good value and great location. Great staff and security as well. Clean sheets and passable furniture. This is definitely an alternative to the el cheapo rooms in the East Village and felt safe at all hours. I would recommend this place again when traveling on a tight budget. The glass shower doors afford no privacy when showering. Don't know how the women's showers are configured, but for the guys, it's three next to each other across from the sinks/mirrors. I was brushing my teeth at the mirror facing the mirror and the guy behind me in the shower was, well I had to close my eyes. Also be advised that this is a really nice hostel, so expect loud kids late into the night. However, never enough to wake me up (I was there for five nights).
Best location Bed is not comfortable
Location was excellent and price was affordable. $2 to store a bag was reasonable and security staff assisted with that cheerfully. Perhaps it was an off day, but the 8th floor had a pervasive odor that was unpleasant to say the least. I also was cursed with untidy floor mates who messed up the bathroom and this wasn't cleaned during the 14 hours I was sharing it. The front desk also had an indifferent attitude while checking in - almost as if my presence was disturbing their other plans for the evening. I am pretty tolerant of shared facilities and budget properties in NY, but overall this experience managed to fall even below those standards. I enjoyed my stay at the East Side Y last year, but this stay at the West Side Y left a lot to be desired.
Pool was fun. Staff was wonderful. Room was inexpensive. Location was great. Room 905 -- private bathroom was nice for us traveling as a father and son. Very Spartan. Feels like an old apartment building or dorm room -- room floor is linoleum, tile is old, windows are old. The room felt clean, but there is grime in the corners.
Wow! to the location and gym facilities. With just a few small fixes, this could be a great (NYC inexpensive) place to stay. There was no facecloth provided There were ZERO coat hangers in the closet in my room, despite lots of space for them. One of only three showers in the only male bathroom on the 9th floor was broken (the water control handle was broken off) and could not be used. Your wifi network system blocks all access to destination port 465, ie SMTP, one of the oldest and most basic protocols on the Internet. Yes, many people get their mail through the web (http) nowadays, but many of us don't, and there's no security or other reason to block ssh, ntp, smtp, etc ports. First day, there was no shampoo nor conditioner in my room Second day: there was conditioner but no shampoo in my room. There was no water fountain / source of drinkable water on the floor (bathroom taps sprayed). On two cold days in late April, the room was too hot at night.
Noisy: banging through the night. Cleaning staff did not respect do not disturb sign on door knop
I liked: 1- parking ease 2- proximity to everything 3- facilities (lounge and common area and coffee) 4- comfortable bed I disliked: 1- internet sucks! 2- staff can be irritating sometimes 3- one of my roomies smelled really bad. Made it tough to sleep 4- lockers could be converted to coded locks to avoid having to bring own padlock.
I planned a trip to NYC but my accommodation fell through at the last minute, so I booked a room with the NY Moore simply because it was the cheapest that I could find. I am so glad that I picked it, for a hostel it is very good indeed. The room that I stayed in was very spacious and clean (apart from a bit of dust on the skirting boards), the bathroom was spotless. The staff are very friend and helpful, and it is very near to quite a few subways; easy access to the city. I most definitely recommended The room that I was shown to by a member of staff the was not made up before I arrived, i had to wait outside the room until the maids were finished.
There were the problems with hot water in the bathrooms (2nd floor) in the morning during my stay in the hostel
Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Our hotel door was jammed a bit and was hard to open and close. The door knob was also broken so you would have to turn it all the way and basically kick the door to open it.
The mattress of the room was criminal and there is plenty of room to improve the premises of the hotel and its rooms. The price is high for the quality obtained.
The sitting room was nice and big with a few tvs. The beds are bunkbeds. The lockers in Room 326 did not close so you could not put a lock on them.
Every person that I saw coming to the front desk, including me, would have a reservation problem. Or it wasn't registered, or a different number of people were booked. If you stay there more than one night, expect to have to change rooms!
Clean, but the heating battery didn´t work properly so it was quite chilly in the room.
Good location, nice atmosphere, cleaner than the average hostel in NYC always a long line at the reception desk
The room was clean, the staff were awesome I honesty did not have any dislikes
The staff were really helpful and the room was very clean The room was not available for us on the first night and we were checked in at another hotel. Also the tv didn't work, there was no iPod dock and the shower valve was unreliable.
Reading reviews over Broadway Hotel & Hostel on the internet, we had low expectation and was prepared for the worst. But we were pleasantly surprised on arrival on how good this hotel is. We had the Double Bed / Deluxe Room. The room was clean and spacious. Excellent bed with clean sheets. Nice, clean bathroom and clean towels everyday. Two blocks away from the subway station, and lot of nice restaurants / cafes in the neighborhood. no water cooker, no phone
The hotel was nice,but staff was really rude and unwilling to help you. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to people witch are looking for a hostel like experience. Staff,Staff,Staff,especially male Caucasian guy. He was rude to me and my sister.
Staff were very nice and helpful. Room very small, but as I expected. Bed comfortable and accommodations were great for the price.
