    For New York this is a reasonably priced budget hotel. We needed a twin room but these are few and far between in the city so we opted for a room with bunk beds. Beds are comfortable, each with its own light, 2 USB ports, 2 sockets and TV. The room also has a table, phone and washbasin. Shared bathroom but these are kept clean; 4 bathrooms for around 14 rooms, and we found there was always at least one free when needed. Towels, tissues and soap provided in room. Dispensers for shampoo, conditioner and body lotion in bathrooms. Indicator lights within the room show which ones are in use. Ventilation system as well as air conditioning. Check-in and check-out straightforward, and facility to leave luggage securely free of charge. Efficient lifts. Excellent location in the central area of Manhattan. Easy to walk to major sights such as the Rockefeller Center, Museum of Modern Art, NY Public Library, Times Square, Empire State Building, and southern part of Central Park. Easy access to the subway for travelling to other areas of the city, and for the E line to JFK airport. Plenty of restaurants and supermarkets nearby. Main shopping avenues only a few blocks away. Roof terrace with seating an added bonus. Food and drinks can be purchased on site but we didn't do this so can't comment on quality.

    Not a dislike as such but the ventilation system is very noisy at night - take ear plugs if you are light sleeper.

    Bed very comfortable.

    The bathroom sink was the size of an airplane bathroom—minuscule.

    central location

    Room and bathroom is too small. It was not comfortable to be in and the air conditioning is too loud. Also very noisy with traffic from the main road

    The size for the room. So much so that bed was turned sideways so the so called head board was never used.
