The air conditioning in the room was very much appreciated! No line ups to use the showers nor wc. Excellent value for your money!

Nice staff, not far from Manhattan. The rooms were nice and big. There's only 4 people per room. Dorm is inside a campus so it's really safe.

Nice facilities for the price I paid, including a fridge. The room was also very big, wasn't luxurious, but clean. Perfect location, in the middle of everything. It's a massive building and easy to meet people. Very close to the metro so you can get to anywhere quickly.

The rooms were nice and big. The location is perfect and the subway is just a couple of minutes away. There are 2 security checkpoints to get into the building so it felt very safe.

Room comes with a fridge and microwave and a safe. The subway stop is literally outside in the corner. The bed and pillow were really comfortable. It was never too hot or too cold at night.
