This was the perfect place in NY! We stayed in a one bed/private bath and housekeeping did come each day for trash and made the bed. It had a nice shower and hot water. It is so close to everything in NY, right off the 96th street station on the 1, 2, 3 lines. And the hostel and area was very safe.

2/10 Poor

This place was horrible. Bed sheets dirty towels stained SHARED bathroom was not fit for animals it was so disgusting. There was also a sign after we checked in that the City banned multiple rooms for being unsafe to habitat so makes me wonder about the room I was in. Did not take a shower during my stay due to bathroom being so discussing. Also had to have the heater in the room repaired multiple times to actually start working. Maintenance never knocked, they just walked in like we were not even in the room. This place should be removed for future customers to not use.
