        Stayed here for 4 nights in September 2013. As a 30 year-old female traveler, I felt perfectly safe here. No problems with any other guests, employees, or any kind of vermin/bug that may be all over New York. The room is literally the size of a closet, with a very small bed and barely enough room for 2 large bags and myself, but you have 4 walls around you and a secure lock on your own door. You aren't stuck in a huge room of bunk beds surrounded by strangers while you sleep or get dressed. Since the ceilings are open and walls are pretty thin, you can hear others, but everyone was surprisingly quiet and respectful during my four nights here. I am a very light sleeper, and the street noise was more bothersome than the people. Problem solved with earplugs. The bathrooms and showers are like those in a dorm. Except the water was always hot! Bring some flip flops. As there are no electrical outlets in your room(worst thing about this place, by far), you'll have to charge your phone and other electronics while you're brushing your teeth and getting ready. Or sit downstairs in the lobby for a while to use those plugs while you eat or socialize. Or ask the employees at the desk to charge them for you. These minor inconveniences are easy to overlook for such a low price for a safe place to store your belongings and sleep a few hours a night. To walk out the door in the morning, or night, and be in this area, is priceless! You can come prepared for less than luxurious but perfectly safe accommodations or go waste 4-5 times as much money each night elsewhere. I'll keep coming back here and spend my money enjoying time in this incredible city.

        A great bargain and stay for travellers how don't have or want to spend to much money. It's clean, location is great, friendly people who work there and always nice people who you can meet there. That's why I whent there 2 years in a row. It may not be the Ritz, but in the end all you need is a bed to sleep in because I was always exploring the city.

        A great bargain for travellers + models or actors in the city --small private rooms include a small closet + plenty of hooks to hang your nice clothes, similar to european hostels, simple basic wonderful budget lodgings!

        Great location near SoHo, East Village, 7-11 across street + Whole Foods a few blocks away!

        The price cannot be beat. When you are in NYC you really want to enjoy the great restaurants, sightseeing museums, etc + that does require money from your budget. Therefore, saving money here for lodgings really makes your stay in NYC so much more enjoyable because you can enjoy so much more on other things.

        The location is also really great.

        Having a closet space + being able to hang your clothes, as well as the beds being high up so that there is storage space under the beds is really invaluable.

        Having a private shower instead of communal ones at other hostels means you don't have to worry about your things while you shower, or privacy issues (I like to take a shower without the cleaning people in the bathroom at the same time is that weird? Here you don't have to worry about it :)

        The location is also really great. Right between two subway stations, and also near SoHo, East Village. Great for shopping at cute little boutiques that you can't find anywhere else.

        This place is just a g_dsend!

        If you´re just looking for the cheapest accomodation, this is your best bet. It is very basic but it offers everything that it is necessary. Even though the rooms are not completely enclosed because the walls do not get to the ceiling, there is not much noise and you´re able to sleep perfectly well. My room was very narrow, with just one bed and little space to leave my luggage, but I wasn´t looking for much more. If you´re only gonna be there to sleep, it is more than enough.

        The location is also good. Close enough to subway, shops, buses. If price is paramount, I wouldn´t look any further.

We managed to line up, pick up our tickets and line up to go inside in under 15 minutes – we were amazed at hour fast it was once we just took notice of one attendant. The Radio City hall was incredible with a massive chandelier hanging from the ceiling, all glittery and shiny as there were lots of old fashioned 50’s style lighting, it took my breath away – I must have taken about 50 photos of it – I stood off to the side taking ...
