Good 7.2 From 1,141 reviews

Good 6.0
The location is unmatchable. Just at the west side of the Central Park. The overall condition of the room was unsatisfying - the windows, and the radiator and the vinyl floors. Maybe I should not expect much more for this price, but still. Also there was a strange not so nice smell in the room.

Pleasantly surprised after reading bad reviews.
I was very hesitant to book a room here because I read many reviews claiming how terrible it was and the experience would be awful, especially as this trip was my first time staying in 'hostel' style accommodation. I was VERY pleasantly surprised when I arrived. I booked the deluxe single room with semi private bathroom. The staff were efficient upon check in, and could answer all my questions. The room was basic, but clean and comfortable, with a fantastic view of Central Park and the East Side. The bed was comfortable and the sheets were clean. It was snowing when I arrived, so this is cold i'm not used to coming from South Africa, and the room and hostel were always warm. The cleaners never disturbed me, and I always came back to the room in the evening to see it cleaned. I used the safe to lock away valuables and nothing was taken. The bathroom situation was great too, and I never had a problem getting one of the bathrooms. If a bathroom is in use, the occupant will lock the door and put their key card in the window to show it's in use, and there was always one available. I mainly used the one adjacent to my room and it was always clean. I also made use of the pool and steam room/saunas which is convenient in the gym section. Maybe my standards are low (unlikely because I usually do the 4 & 5* hotels) but my experience here was incredible and I would gladly stay here again, and most likely will upon my hopefully soon return to NYC. Thank you so much for a great stay.

Clean and fairly quiet giving the location. A good area to get to many attractions quickly. Reasonably priced, however there is a $30 charge on arrival and if you want to use the pool you’ll need a swimming hat.

Poor 2.0
lies and deception
Advertised as 24H Check in? Think again!- counter guy called Ramos didn’t bother to check if room was ready merely pointed to 1430h check in time, merely directed us to the paid luggage storage area- “$2 per hour”-fortunately per piece. but when a lovely couple of European ladies present themselves, rooms were checked and keycards were issued. Upon checking again with another dude at the counter, w the advanced payment printout- key card was then issued. #doublestandards #discrimination #poorservice No heating Be prepared to sleep in your winter wear and the “central heating does not turn on until it is below 47 deg” but the temp has been in the 30s all the while!!-hell it even snowed! But no heating, window ain’t double coated so you get constant wintry ventilation along with the pitter patter all night long. Gym scolding -went to counter to enquirer again about heatingas temp has dropped by 0400h to 30s but still no heating- directed me to security to get more blankets (single towel like blanket for each bed-hence winter wear to sleep) -guy at counter said gym opens at 0600h daily- and since I was (still) up at 0600h might as well get some sweat out - gym doors open n accessible by lift w lights on, started working out but some other guy comes in to the gym and was displeased as hell- said gym ain’t open. Wasn’t listening to no explanation that his colleague at the counter was the one who told us it was open. Sarcastic reasoning that the lights would
