Funky - Urban Adventure in NYC
Great place to stay if you are looking to "crash", very small (dorm style) but had everything we needed! Very European and it was "an adventure"!

--When I read online during booking that I had chosen a shared bathroom and shower facility, I was a bit wary, since, being a "mature" woman who has traveled quite extensively, I normally would have a private bath and toilet. (There is a sink in the room, which made a difference.) My trip was only for an overnight, so I figured I could deal with it easily enough. As it turns out, there was no problem at all. ----No one was ever in there when I needed to use it, and there were two showers on my floor. --The desk person was very welcoming, and came out to find me on the sidewalk when I had trouble locating the door, (the number, high above the door, did not stand out, and I did not spot a sign informing me I was at the right place). --The venue is an older, renovated, hotel or apartment building that is tastefully yet simply and artfully decorated. --My room was next to a smoking room, but on the wall, above the door, was a small fan that circulated the air around regularly, so the hallway had very little smoke residue. The room was hot, but the open window made it comfortable throughout the night. --Earplugs had been provided to block out noise, which I found to be a nice touch. Washcloths had been placed in the small toilet room to use for hand-drying, which is also a nice (green) touch. --My experience, overall, was pleasant and I would recommend it to travelers who are on a budget and need a clean, comfortable room while visiting New York City.

This is a bargain hotel in a great location for transit. I didn't realize from the description that the showers and toilets were in the hallway. That said, the hotel is clean, basic, inexpensive (for NYC) and a few blocks from Penn Station. The desk staff is helpful and the rooms, although small, have everything you'd need including wifi.
