I've stayed here often and love it. This is authentic living in a great location in NYC. You have everything you need - bed, Internet, towels -- without any unnecessary frills and no corporate management. You deal directly with the person in charge of the place. If I'm going to NYC I always check whether this place has a free... More

This is a 19th century townhouse which has been owned since the 1950's by the Mennonites. It has a fascinating history, check their website, and currently houses MCC volunteers and other young people working for non-profits in the city. They have three guest rooms of which we have only seen one. Bare-bones and cheap; I shouldn't even be telling you... More

Definitely not luxury in any way! We squeezed 5 people in a room with a loft and it was very tight. The room had one queen bed and upstairs loft had two single beds with mattress and box spring, but had to hunch over and no room for anything else up there. Steps are narrow and steep climbing up.

My husband and I spent 5 nights here during our trip to New York and it was great. Definitely nothing fancy, just the basics but really in New York that's all you need! Spent very little time here aside from sleeping, but had great sleeps with air conditioning. Manager was very accommodating with our delayed arrival due to flight issues.... More

I spent 3 nights here in November 2014, and found it suited my needs perfectly. The room was spacious, well appointed and very quiet. The location is very convenient to bus and subway. The manager Jason is helpful and friendly, and the other housemates were very congenial. The whole place is spotlessly clean, and the full kitchen meant I could... More

We've stayed here a few times. This house is operated by Mennonites who rent out rooms, even though there are more permanent students staying at the house as well. There are rooms with bunk beds as well as rooms without. I do remember a 'loft-type' bed situation with was quite unique, although probably not accessible for some seniors. Bathrooms are... More

I've stayed at Menno House twice, most recently for four nights. It is not luxurious and not warm 'n' friendly, but it gets the job done. The best guest room is the one overlooking the garden, which I stayed in my first time. This time, I was in a different room, one that is very dark and pretty charmless. It... More

If you are looking for simple, clean and safe lodging at a low price this is for you. If you are looking for a B&B with atmosphere and breakfast this is not the place. The location is near Gramercy Park, about a five block walk to subway, but only a half block walk to major north-south bus lines. Interesting small... More

Menno House was on a very safe and quiet street near Gramercy Park, Union Square and the Flat iron district. The rooms are very adequate, with sheets, towels, and an AC. We arrived around 9am and we were able to leave our luggage in the hallway. Our rooms were actually ready about an hour after we came, which was a... More

If you just need the basics, this is the place to stay. We were really only needed a place to sleep, so the price was right. The bathroom is in the basement, along with a kitchen.
