Next subway (open 24 hours) and restaurant. Nice neighborhood and low prices on all the things (including food). Its possible to do a lot of thing on foot. Perfect cleaning and room service. Secure, you can look all your thing.
No staff or a way to communicate with someone.
Very clean, large rooms, very, very close to the subway. Kitchenette well prepared. We were very satisfied. Excellent Wi-Fi!!!
There are no locks on the door! It's unthinkable! You do not need to enter the keys of your room. The only security codes on the door to the stairwell and lockable wardrobe. You have to trust your neighbors.
15 min walk to central park Really clean Confortable
It was great location to be in since it was sitting right above a subway station.
The Television did not have all the channels running, and the bunk bed were not comfortable to sleep on.
Room is clean and all facilities is great. Location is the best!
There is no name plate or any sign in front of hostel to show us that its name is rostel.
Price. Cleanliness. Subway 1 min away from the hotel.
It takes around 30-40 min to travel by subway to downtown manhattan.
organization (keys) wifi price/quality
Good price, location, nice shops around, the subway is seconds away. I Would stay here again.
No elevator and no staff.
Clean, subway nearby, good value for money, lots of shops and restaurants in the area.
Housekeeping didnt speak any english, spanish only. Matrass was really bad, you can feel the springs.
Location was good, near of the subway.
Can´t lock the doors. This is really unbelievable.
I would have said the good thing about the place was the cost but we later realized it was cheap for a reason.
There was no staff around to ask anything. We were there for 8 days and we didn't see a single staff except a cleaner who couldn't speak English. We actually wanted to check out from the first day but the hotel already charged us for the 8 days so we were forced to stay. For the 8 days, the sheets in the room were not changed. We had to share conveniences with 2 other families so we kept waiting for one another to use to loo. Although we didn't have any direct negative experiences, the location looks so insecure with all sorts of hoodlums hanging around and policemen at every block. One of the worst parts for us is that the hotel rooms doors don't lock! The front door is usually open.
The rostel is very clean, is like 10 min away (on foot) from the edge of Central Park. The room is very comfortable and the kitchen is very well equipped. Nice local shops nearby. And easy access to bus and underground (I found it better to take bus to and from lower Manhattan instead of the subway).
Eventhough was the cheapest htl I could find available in Upper Manhattan, it is very expensive and the area of East Harlem is a bit awkward and seams quite dangerous, although no one ever disturbed me.
The room was clean, the hotel is situated 2 minutes walking from the subway station which made it easy to find.
The area was good and the rooms were clean
No staff on site and no locks on doors - sink unfinished on second floor and waiting for a building inspection
Near subway Rooms cleaned regularly Locking rooms, fairly secure
There were no staff to interact with, this immediately unsettled us. No air con in the main area Bathrooms could have been cleaner Not in a brilliant area although not far from the subway so using an unlimited metrocard is essential.
price performance ratio is OK. Room is clean. near subway station.
shared bathroom. hotel surrounding environment is just OK. air conditioner is noisy.
Cheapest hotel found, all hotel and hostel are expensive in nyc and this is one of the cheapest we stay in 203 really clean room, the shared kitchen and the shared bathroom are also really clean.
