If you're looking for cheap, clean and basic, this is your place. (If you need your own bathroom, room service or an elevator you should keep looking.) It's RIGHT in the mix of the East Village which is fantastic. Surrounded by great restaurants, walking distance to Broadway, Nolita, Washington Square and TONS more. But, it can be noisy if you're in a street-side room so bring earplugs.
Staff was friendly, but not always at their post-- not to worry they could always be reached by phone and would come quickly if you ever needed anything. Bathrooms were cleaned daily, although shared by about 5-6 rooms. At one point during my stay there were about 10 guys on my floor and lets just say they weren't the tidiest bathroom occupants. But there were two showers, and three toilets on the floor, so no lines or issues.
Room was smallish but clean and had shelves, closet, tiny desk and a small locker. It was all I needed.
For the price and location I give it fantastic marks. I would definitely stay there again.
My only tiny complaint is that the prices change on a daily basis, so book early and don't count on getting the same rate if you want to extend your booking.
