    The location was easily accessible by subway. The shared bathrooms were very clean and well kept.

    They wouldn't give me a receipt. I don't know why but when I asked for a receipt they said they couldn't give me one. I booked with a credit card but when I got there they couldn't take any cards and made me go out, find a bank, and pay with cash.

    My room was fair for the price, but I heard from many gests that their room was terrible, that looked like a chicken had been living there!

    The staff was never the same, and they just didnt comunicate between themselves! Was terrible to pay with credit card, because the machine only works in some hours (crazy!) and then when I decided to pay with cash they didnt gave me back all the copy of the informations of my credit card that they had already made.. That place didnt made me fell safe!

    You get exactly what you pay for, a very safe, clean and very, very small room about 4 feet wide and 6 feet long. But that is exactly what I wanted, plus an internet connected computer at the end of the hall. Also very, very quiet.

    Stairway was a bit dirty and there was no elevator up to 5th floor.

    The only think kept me satisfy was the price per night.

    To pay all the amount during check in while try to explain that the hotel already committed some money from your visa. Not very clean and you have to used the view of cockroaches in the small room.

    The room was warm and clean. The price was a great deal.

    Among disadvantages are small size of the room and it's thin walls.

    I spent as less as possilble time in hotel. I saw lot of new york

    The room was small like a cell. Staff tryed to cheat me. I ordered deluxe room and I got wrong room. Even the price changed in check in. Staff did not talked english vey well. Bed was bad and there was a blood in my bed. There was not a paper in toilet. Even soap was over. be careful with this one. this hotel ruined my new york trip!

    Extremely basic my floor was relatively clean but you had to go past 2 other floors that were squalid and smelt awful deffinatley the worse place I have ever stayed in, the wifi did not work and the room was just big enough for the tiny bed with nowhere to hang cloths

  • Single

    The price is what gets people book a room at the hotel, not the place itself.

    The walls are paper thin and there is no roof so you can hear everyting what goes on around you.

    The hotel did not have any elevator. To get the reception you should pass tens of stairs. In the room description the air conditioning was mentioned but there was no ac at all! The staff were not collaborative and polite.

    the location, not too far from everything. The staff is okay

    the individual rooms at the 5th floor are kinda clean but the lower levels are dirty and smelly. the surface of the individual rooms is as big as your bed, that's incredibly small, really had the impression to be in a cage. The restrooms are always unclean, water on the floor... the service is rediculious, they provide a lil towel, a portion of soap which is more a sample than anything, you actually have to bring your own soap and stuff.

    The definition I can find for this hotel? Is horrible, hotel should not be the word. The location is Chinatown, a neighborhood that smelly and dirty. Most guests are Asian and I'm not racist I must say, the staff of this hotel is Asian. First to arrive had made ​​reservations for two nights on Booked.net and told me it was just one night. Groceros were as aggressive and make no effort to understand English as it is not my language, the employee told me to go to the computer to write what I wanted to say. Guests rare. I did charge the credit card before the deadline that had to eliminate in this case the reserve and still has not seemed to register and an I have to check with my bank charged me twice if the stay. Very Expensive for what this hotel offers. I did not get the bank statements of charges to my credit card or receipt. They treated me badly. The room has no window and there is not the case because you have to put it on the bed. There is noise from other guests at all times not let you sleep, not air-conditioned single fan. If not speak English or you like the bad treatment of employees do not stay here please. This hotel does not qualify as such and should be closed.

    I disliked my stay in this hotel, a very dirty one !!!!!!!! and noisy (regarding the air conditioning system, I didn't sleep all the night !!). It is not wise to recommend this hotel ... only in case of very emergency

    The hotel is right in Chinatown, which is one of the most vibrant and interesting neighbourhoods of New York City. There are some great restaurants around.

    Read the facilities description carefully: these rooms are about 1.5 x 2 metres -- more like renting a shelf than a room. The bathrooms are shared, and there are no elevators. Perfectly fine for the budget-minded single traveller, but be sure you're comfortable with this!

    Location was convenient to subways and destinations

    I did not like the fact that my room did not have a private bath. I saw nothing about that in the listing.

  • Single

    It is not a hotel. The room had 2 walls and a wire mesh as a roof. The place was filty.the bathrooms were terrible. The staff were unhelpfull. I asked the man at the desk for a taxi as my bags were too heavy and the taxi refused to pick me up. The place should be closed asap.
