    Paid about $100/night for two nights.private room with a shared bathroom. The place was very quiet which was nice. Pretty clean overall (I've stayed in a lot of hostels and this one was average- there were no cockroaches lol) bed was comfortable enough, room was a pretty good size +there was a TV. Staff was helpful and professional. Shared bathroom was surprisingly fine. Location IDEAL (best part).leave backpack @desk for free during day. 11AM check out nice. Would consider staying again.

    Very Good

    In our search for a reasonably priced place to stay, we came across the Royal Park Hotel. We enjoyed staying there mainly because of the great location - close to the red line it was very easy to get anywhere in Manhattan quickly. We also enjoyed being close to Central Park. Having read reviews, we knew what to expect in terms of rooms, but we were happy with our room as it was spacious and clean! We would recommend it for its location and price.

    The location is absolutely the good point of the hotel. It just takes 8 minutes walk to the subway system. Nearby there are a lot of restaurants and stores. We feel it is still safe to walk on the street nearby in the evening. The room is very small and the price is quite expensive, but it is acceptable as it is located in Manhattan district, you can reach different main attractions in a relatively short time by subway. The cleanliness is alright in the room or shared bathroom.

    Really basic, not many facilities - no kettle or tea or coffee. Towels were small and bed was small for a double. Air con very noisy so you had to have it on whilst you weren’t there and turn it off once in the room. No shampoo or conditioner given just 2 bars of soap and for a double room we only got one glass for us both to use.

    Hotel is ok. You get what you pay for for NYC. Staff was very polite. It's with Hostelword I have an issue. I originally made a reservation for three nights and paid a deposit. It was a free cancelation reservation. However, I change my reservation at the hotel at no charge for two nights. Ended up paying the full price for two nights meaning I was overcharged by the amount of the deposit. Hostelword is refusing to refund the deposit and they are acting like they don't understand what's happened

    I absolutely hated using the restrooms here. It was dingy, pretty dysfunctional and usually occupied. There was one shower and toilet for probably 8 rooms. You could probably have a better location and similar price if you just stayed in a hotel with someone. The rates should’ve really been lower for what this was. The window had chicken wire on it in place of a screen and the building was always weirdly hot at probably 80 degrees (we were there in March).

    Left after one night cause it was really dirty and unhygienic. There was big cockroaches in both the bathroom and the room. The room itself was not really clean and smelled moldy. The door just had a single small lock and would not close at all when unlocked. The window had a gap so it got really cold at night. In the shared bathroom was hair and dirt all over the place, the shower curtain was moldy and stained. Not recommendable, was really disgusting and we canceled the stay after one night.

    This hostel is not as seen in the photos. My room was a bunk bed and the springs in the mattress visibly protruded. The rooms smelt damp, the linen was dirty, the window didn’t close so it was cold and the wind whistled through the crack. The heating pipe was dribbling out foam onto the carpet, the shared bathroom was mouldy, other guests smoked in the room adjacent to mine, the hallway entrance smelt of faeces (there was a cat there!?) which they tried to cover with room spray. Overpriced.
