a cramped room with no space to move, they rented a triple room and charged for it and it was a bed for two and one bunker bed, we were three men. The worst hostel I ve been in the world and expensive. Half of the reception staff was quite unfriendly exceptr the cleaners and porters, so I dont reccomend it to anyone, it was a terrible experience.

We couldn't found common spaces at the hostel. I think that is most close to a cheap hotel than to a hotel. Is impossible to meet people and share experiences with other guest. Please review Wikipedia definition and explain me how this hostel can be viewed as an sociable oriented whay of "accommodation". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hostel

Thank you for your review! As common space is limited in manhattan, all of our activities such as karaoke, pizza parties, movie night, wine night....are all held in our lobby. These are just a few activities to meet fellow guests. Others include our almost daily free walking tours and pub crawls.

Very comfortable and very clean. Space is a bit of an issue for luggage, and there isn't really a common area to visit and meet people. Otherwise it is a great place to be close to to the heart of New York city.

Thank you for your review and thank you for noticing our cleanliness and high standard of comfort. As space is limited in manhattan, we utilize our lobby and entrance for activities to allow other guests to meet. Activities include: karaoke, pizza night, game night, wine tasting & movie night. We coordinate walking tours and pub crawls as a few of our social activities. We look forward to having you stay with us again in the near future.

We loved our stay at the budget inn, clean, new hostel with good facilities, fre wi fi in room, helpful staff. However, there was a big metal pipe running floor to ceiling in our room which had clattering sounds intermittently through the night.

The front desk people at this stunningly enjoyable hostel in the heart of New York City are hysterically funny - Kelly Ripa from ABC TV could be potentially rendered speechless by these unrelentingly talented people-experts! They are truly the NBA - throw anything challenging at them at any hour and any one of them will rebound with surprisingly penetrating resources aimed at making your visit to one of the most resourceful cities in the world more AAA than you had ever expected.

Location was alright, however a little harder to get across town. Small rooms but standard for NYC. A word of warning, there is no elevator but the staff will help you with your bags! I enjoyed my stay here!

Thank you for your response. The bus stop located right in front of our hostel goes cross town.

Very small room for three. Sometimes no hot water in shower. No elevator and we lived on the fifth floor (which is the top floor). I think they're a bit cheap for charging $5 for luggage storage until departure. But: Good location, with the M34 bus stop right outside the front door, cheap for NYC so what could you expect...

Thank you for your message! Yes, NYC can be tight, but most hostel/ hotels can't even accommodate a cot for a 3rd guest. Our 3 Bed private Room is a great option for a great value! Space is limited and for that reason we offer luggage storage as an option for guests who want to take advntage of thier day. If we didnt charge there would be no room. As we do not have an elevator, our staff is always available to bring guests luggage up and down for them 24/7.

Book your room early because we found it hard to get a reservation for an entire weekend. The ensuite bathrooms are a nice to have but I wish the sink/mirror was just a tad bigger. Also, no full length mirror around to help a girl out with outfit choice was a downside! But those are small things.. overall the stay was pretty good. Would stay here again.

Thank you for your review. We will take your suggestion of a full length mirror into consideration.

Perfect location, helpful and kind staff, clean, min points: small room (2br) and noisy at night because of 34th street. If you just look for a place to sleep its perfect, for staying in the room during the day it was too small. But hey there is so much to do that we only came back for sleeping

New York Budget was an exceptional hotel. The staff was friendly and welcoming even when you are late for your booking (just call in advanced!). Though there is no elevator the stairs are no problem. The location is great as you can easily get to the subway and there are plenty of places to eat around the area. Many hostels will have out in slightly dodgier areas which as a single female traveler might make you uncomfortable getting to late at night.

Friendly staff, clean and a good location. Tiny common area. Lockers in the room-byo lock. Noisy air conditioning.

Would be nice if the rooms had some shelving. Really appreciate that the hostel provides sandals and towels though.
