There's a weird smell in the lobby. The front desk guy only knows to watch his phone and put feet on the desk. There's dirty smell from the pillows... Good size room though.

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.

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 I originally made a reservation for three nights and paid a deposit.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
