The room was EXTREMELY tiny, it could not fit 2 open suitcases!!! The smell in the room was very annoying. Breakfast is very bad quality (no drink except coffee, no tea, and only small greasy doughnuts) Good point, the bathroom was very clean. Overall very low quality for the price.

Thank you for your review. As you had reserved our Basic Twin Private Room, our most inexpensive room, we 9 other different room types available. We do not offer breakfast, however we do offer complimentary Dunkin Donuts Coffee and Donuts, not to shabby for quality.

As cheap as I could find on Manhattan but still expensive. That's New York. It's nothing special. A clean bed and a shower. There's no other real facilities. The common area is the lobby. The staff are generally good. The big thing is the location. On 34th street with the Empire State and Times Square a short walk away! Fantastic!

Good hostel right on 34th St. Good facilities, not much of a party/social atmosphere, but I didn't actually spend much time there (basically just sleeping). Cool spot.

Location was great, just 4 blocks from empire state building and several streets from chrysler building. People were friendly and very helpfull. Room was very small and here was no window, so if you plan to spend more time in a room, do not recommend. Otherwise, for short trip it was allright. Price excellent for New York.

This was a good place to stay in New York on a budget and you are in walking distance of several attractions. The staff were very friendly and helpful, everything was clean and the wifi worked really well. The hostel lacks any cooking facilities and the breakfast is limited, but I accepted that and enjoyed food elsewhere.

Good money value but far from Times Square, Central Park, and Rockefeller center. Empire State is probably 10-15 minutes walk. Closest subway is around 30minutes walk. Had to ride cab from penn station instead. No free breakfast. And front desk didn't give me soap shampoo and slippers but I saw my roommates have them.

Thank you for your review. There are multiple subway stations within 3 blocks from us. Times Square is a 15 min walk or 10 min by public transit. Penn Station is also a 12-15 min walk. Please note that we offer Dunkin Donuts Coffeee and Donuts from 8am, first come first serve. We appoligized you didn't receive your Free Soap, shampoo, conditioner and slippers. As we may have forgotten to give it to you we would have gladly given it to you if you would have reminded us.

The inn is axx hostel with en suite bathrro or communal ones. It is a bt expensive for this type ,especially if you come on weekends ($75 instad of $70 ). It is a good one wth the least expensive room rates in Manhattan area unless you move to other areas north of 100thStreet in Harlem or Bronx or Broolyn area. The good thing is it is close to Times Square ( 30 minutes walk). You save more as you do not need to a bus or subway ( $2.75 for a ride or $2.50 with Metrocard.$5 for lugguage deposit

The cleanliness was the best part. Very well kept facility. 80 USD for a bunk bed is a little steep though...plus the extra 5$ for like everything...a towel, a locker, to hold your luggage if you come early.....it's a bit much.

Very attentive staff. Location couldn't be better. Right around the corner is a bar called Mercury with great food, great atmosphere, and happy hour drink specials! Don't go to the restaurant that they recommend right below the hostel. We were overcharged, and the service is horrible! Rooms are on the small side, but the A/C works, and there are enough bathrooms down the hall so that you don't have to wait. Overall, I would come back, but maybe stay in a smaller or private room.

Clean, comfortable beds, spacious rooms, shower and bathrooms are fine. Staff at the front desk very helpful and friendly, also help you with your bags so general service was great! No elevator though so stairs would have been very difficult if i didnt have the helper as i had a lot of bags! great value for money considering location

A little expensive, and store luggage is $5 for each after checking out, which I never heard any hostel does that. The staff is really nice though.

Best value for money you can get in Manhattan. It is very clean and tidy and the staff is very helpful. It is close to everything either walking distance of just few stops with the subway. This is Manhattan so the rooms are tiny(I am186cm, 6' 2). It is a great place over all.

It's a really -really- affordable place. With that in mind it is really good overall and the staff is truly friendly and helpfull. The only thing is that our room (415) smelled quite bad. It must be the poor ventilation. Nothing big, just not pleasant. That said, it's a very good service and all for such an economic place.
