    Historical Traveler Reviews Graffiti Hostel New York City

    Made a grown man cry!!!!!

    from

    Please, please, please stay away from this sorry excuse for a hotel. Ok so we booked a late trip and went for the cheaper option but this place takes the biscuit. On entry the place doesnt look so bad but you just wait till you see the rooms. In fact, no don't wait to see the rooms, just don't go!!! Read the advice above a stay away..........

    Do not go there

    from

    oh how i wish i'd read the rest of these reviews before i booked! it was horrible. dirty and disgusting. i burst into tears when i saw the room, but we had no choice but to stay there. the whole place was filthy. the shared toilets (2 rooms with a loo and crap shower between each floor of at least 15 rooms) where smelly and dirty, with limited hot water. the bed was rancid and stained and gave no support, we slid into the dent in the middle as soon as we got in it. there were really noisy pipes running floor to ceiling through the room. the door didn't fit in the frame and the window didn't close properly. i could go on all day about what was wrong. just don't bother.

    Dirty, Filthy, Smelly... Need I Say More?

    from

    I booked to go NYC and was exceptionally excited... until i saw this (and i use this in the loosest possible term!) "hotel". Upon arrival i knew i'd made a mistake, the staff were rude, the reception was dirty and smelt! When i got to my room the door had been kicked in and what looked like droppings were in the corridor! My room had a broken window, a sad filthy hole in the wall for a wardrobe, the bed was broken and sheets were filthy! The light... well there was no light switch let alone a light! The view from the window was of a lovely brick wall, the toilets were apalling, filthy, mouldy and to put it politely infested! It was the worst place i have ever ever seen in my life.... i collected my suitcase and left immediately i didnt dare sleep in the hotel! I seriously reccomend you think long and hard before staying here!

    Hotel from hell

    from

    These were the most disgusting rooms i have ever entered in my life.

    The place was absolutely filthy,there was not a stick of furniture where you could hang your clothes. the windows were so dirty you could not see through them. the linen was grey ,the doors had been kicked in ,lights did not work,we found a used condom under a bed.the bathrooms were dirty, broken basins and fittings and the hallways and lifts stank of urine and worse.it was described on the net as clean and comforable nothing could be further from the truth. give this place a very wide berth .ECK. our visit was october 2003......

    Horrible horrible horrible

    from

    please please do not stay here. its hell on earth - the seediest, creepiest, dirtiest hotel i've ever had the misfortune to stay in. it is a broken down flop house with no amenities, small dirty room and indifference service. we nicknamed it bate's motel for good reason, the whole atmosphere is downright spooky. dark dingey sqaulid place. avoid avoid avoid avoid.

    Stay away!

    from

    Awful place.. nice neighbourhood, but the place is a dump. Arrogant staff, even missed a meeting with a friend because of these idiots..door wouldn't close properly, the toilet was broken, tv wasn't working at all, nice view to a brick wall one foot away.. v e r y thin walls, cockroaches.. need I say more?

    We cancelled the rest of our stay

    from

    It was cheap, but the hallways smelt of urine and the public bathrooms were not kept clean. I could feel the springs through the bed and the sheets were so thin you could see through them.

    Awful place!

    from

    This place really was the pits! Cheap, but really a dive! Bunk beds, cracked windows, noise, dark lighting, not very clean and the customer service was really terrible! They have no clue about customer satisfaction - I will never go back, that's for sure. Honestly, I would prefer to sleep on the sidewalk outside the hotel than cross the threshold to that piece of rubbish!

    Avoid at all cost...

    from

    This hotel is dreadful. It is dirty and cramped. Our room had bunk beds, a sink, a light that sometimes worked and a dodgy perspex window with no catch and that was it. No TV, no A/C not anything else. The only positive was the communal shower had fantastic water pressure! All in all, pay $20 dollars a night more and stay in a much nicer and much better located hotel.

    Suprisingly good

    from

    Was referred to West Side Inn after contacting sister hotel. was not in any guidebook I had so had no idea what it would be like. Suprised to find that it was friendly, very clean and had the most comfortable bed of my trip to the States!! Bathrooms clean, staff very helpful. Best of all a great price for a hotel that allows you to access most of the city, very close to shops and a subway station. Would recommend highly for travellers on a budget.

    ... down the park. It is well used by the local community. Tonight at 8 pm there are still lots of people using the park for exercise.

    Managed to get a seat at breakfast - we were earlier today and maybe others slept in on Sunday? Usual offerings but it is nice to have a breakfast in the hotel and not have to go out to find something to eat.

    Our plan today was to go down town from where we were staying. Packed the backpack which had dried out over night and headed ...

After a quick mojito (as it took literally about 30mins to get served) we went for dinner at Ruth’s Chris steakhouse. NY restaurant week is back on meaning that you can eat in some restaurants off a special menu consisting of 3 courses for $38 which is great value. We had been to Ruth’s Chris with ...

    ... re weird American squirrels anyway, sort of a mixture of grey and red. There were lots of schools playing baseball so I made an attempt to learn how to play, but when primary school kids are playing it's hard to work out. That afternoon I met up with yuan, who I'd met in Siem reap, he lives in New York, in the swanky business district I might add. He used to work for Budweiser so we met up with his friends that still did and sort of went on ...
