real cheap hotel room that for my experience wasn't as sketchy as other people have led on.

- Bathrooms were in terrible condition: bugs, reeking of urine, moldy/crusted over shower heads, no ceilings, stagnant water all over the floors; I preferred public restrooms... there was a sign apologizing for the state of the bathrooms and apparently it was being renovated the year I stayed (2015) - "Prison-style" floor-plan: there are about 60 small, closet-sized rooms all together on each floor with no ceilings (so you can easily hear people around you; bring earplugs); it resembles a prison or mental institution, and looks depressing (you are warned) - Bed size: I am 5'10" and my foot touched the wall at the base of the bed; the beds are small with a single mattress - Little room to put personal items (only one small cabinet, some hooks, and a small surface at the head of the bed (big luggage would be a bad idea) - No elevator (not a problem for me, but I stayed on the 5th floor, so just be prepared)
- Location, location, location: it is in the heart of Chinatown, a couple of minutes walk from the metro, within view of the Little Italy sign, surrounded by bakeries and restaurants, etc. - At least when I checked, it was the cheapest place in Manhattan by a long shot - Floors are single sex and beds are tiny, so unlike with hostels, you do not should not need to worry about late-night love making awkwardly happening in the bunk next to you - Mattresses were clean when I stayed (I had brought a sleeping bag just in case, but no signs of bed bugs so I did not use my bag) - You will spend more time enjoying NYC because you will be spending so little time here - Can store luggage for free on day you check out

The showers were disgusting, as were the toilets. The wifi was horrible, usually not working. You could hear snoring and people walking by your room very well.
I had low expectations, because of the reviews and how cheap it was. I stayed for a few days and the bed was decent, but in a room with no wall, and no solid roof, as I heard everything that went on that floor. I stayed on the fifth floor and did not encounter any bed bugs or cockroaches I heard about in past reviews. The staff was friendly, I got extra bed sheets when I asked for it.

I have definitely stayed in worse, but I would say that the rooms are not at clean as the bathrooms. I didn't feel comfortable putting anything on the shelf, because it was very dirty and dusty. The floor had probably been swet within the past few days, but had not been mopped in a long time. I would be more keen to stay there again if these things were added to the room cleaning checklist. I ended up placing my things on top of the TV, it looked like it had been wipped down regularly. There were a lot of scuff marks, stains, and spills on the walls. It was pretty gross... It would make a huge difference if the walls were clean.
There was hot water available for free in the lobby, and a cup was provided on request. After getting lost on the subway for two hours, I found the place late at night and was very thirsty so I appreciated that! The rooms are four walls, a ceiling, a bed, a fan, a shelf, and a TV. Very similar to inexpensive Chinese hotels, if you have ever stayed in one. If you need a window in your room, or fresh paint/ clean walls, this is not the place. If you need a room with a bed, I recommend it. Bathrooms were very clean.

no elevator, no windows in room; I was on the 5th floor and had to take my luggage up and down the stairs. Internet not working! room is as small as a prison cell(there is only space for a bed in this room);you can actually hear the noise from other rooms;bugs are presented in the room as expected(we already prepared for it so we brought the sleeping bag);the room is so dirty;the power plug is very inconvinent to use

Washrooms and bathrooms were disgusting. Cockroaches and spiders are all over the hotel. It shouldn't even be called a hotel. Not even a Motel or Inn! Each room is like 2 meters! Rooms have no ceilings! Don't be deceived by the pictures of the rooms and the doors. Crew had terrible behaviour. And didn't communicate good english. Crew were not helpful and didn't care about you. I would never go back to this place called hotel.
Honestly Nothing. It was like a prison.

The whole experience. Management should not let guests stay in room #20 to be specific.No heat in that room, no hot water. Dirty looking sheets & they weren't on top of cleanliness with the bathrooms.
Hotel should be shut down. The room (#20) didn't look safe. Felt like I was going to catch pneumonia sleeping in that fridge of a room.

Showers had some waiting time between 8 and 9am. Plan that ahead if you need to be somewhere on time. Small rooms
Good value for money. Good and clean bathrooms and great staff. Really close for several subway lines.
