Room was ok, but had very strange air which was very bad for our cold. There was a window but hardly any fresh air came in.


Bed was a bit small for us but that was all. Friendly staff, perfect location, you could hear the traffic but hey you're in NYC in a busy part of town so ofcourse you hear that. Airco was loud though, to loud to keep it on during the night but again not a real problem. Our room was super clean, fresh towels everyday and the bathroom was also very clean. We had a perfect stay here.

Its a nice place to stay, cleaning was really good and the staff was very nice. Close to several subway lines and especially Penn Station that is key to go to JFK or Newark airports.

The location was pretty good and the hotel was extremely clean. The internet did not work in our room and we had to go in the hall to use it. The room was very very small and if we had more than two very small suitcases we would not have had room for our stuff. For the very high price we paid even if it was Manhattan I feel we should have had a slightly better accommodation.

The price on hostelworld website was definitely not what we paid! That price was without all the taxes and other fees which means that for 3 people and 4 nights, we had to add $128, that makes a huge difference! If we had known, we would probably have stayed somewhere else. I was very disappointed by the huge difference in price.
