Excellent location! However, why a 3 inch gap under the door to the hallway and adjoining room?!?! Gaps also around all door frames. Heard everything from the hallway and room next door at all hours, even after stuffed with all of the towels in the room under the door. Don’t expect peaceful sleeping.

This hotel is definitely more of a hostel than a hotel. They provide the basics that you need to sleep and get clean, (bed, toilet, shower). The room is big enough, but the bathrooms are VERY small. If you're a bigger person (overweight or broad), this accommodation will NOT work for you. The staff is friendly and make things easy to check in and out. Housekeeping does a good job on a daily basis on the common areas and rooms. Could use more frequent attention on the community bathrooms though.

Easy check in and check out. Room was small just as stated but easy to get around. Appeared very clean. Air conditioning worked great, good water pressure. Would stay again for sure! The roof top deck was amazing!

Before staying in this hotel, I had read many reviews about the size of the rooms that they were very small. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the room size as it had ample storage and it felt more spacious than I had anticipated. However, I did not like the way that there was a window between the bathroom and bedroom (we had a private bathroom). Although it was good as it made the bathroom seem more spacious, I never felt I had full privacy. It wasn’t an issue as I had visited with my boyfriend but if I was to return with a friend/ family member etc this would be an issue. The rooftop terrace is such a wee hidden gem and the views at nighttime were lovely. Another issue was that the walls were super thin.. you can hear noise from neighbouring guests. we were on the second floor and on many occasions there had been individuals out on the street at night, and you could almost hear them word for word.. however, many nights we had returned to the hotel absolutely exhausted from exploring New York all day so it didn’t effect us from falling asleep! No complaints about the staff, cleanliness, and this hotel is very close to an underground station. Thanks again for a great stay.

Location is just perfect! Very clean. Personnel is very friendly and helpful! We were upgraded to a bigger room upon arrival and we were very happy! Drinks are expensive at the Clinton Hall bar adjacent to the hotel, 14$ for a margarita, ouch!!! But maybe it's a normal price for Manhattan? Would definitely stay again!

Thank you for your feedback, we are happy when our guests are happy! Unfortunately, that drink price is on the low end of average for Manhattan, but we have some other favorite spots along 2nd Avenue that have great Happy Hours. We hope future guests reading this will consider downloading our (free) app with some of our best recommendations!

Excellent location on 51th Street between 1st and 2nd Avenue ( Manhattan ). Value for money, different options regarding desired comfort we have opted for the bunkbed with shared bath. There is a rooftop terrace that we have used to debrief the day.

This hotel is very centrally located and good value for money because of its location. The room is small, but for our purposes it was perfect as we just wanted a place to sleep and weren’t going to spend a lot of time in the room. We had a toilet and shower in our room which was convenient. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. It was a bit noisy when people close their doors, but that’s something that one experiences in most hotels.
