My friend (who has never been before) and I travelled to New York in June and needed an affordable place (we're both 19) that was safe but also close enough to everything to make it an easy base for exploring. It seemed impossible to find everything we wanted at the price that fit our small budgets... until I stumbled upon this place on TripAdvisor. The reviews the favourable, the communication with the owner was extremely helpful etc. Upon our arrival, Bruce, the manager welcomed us with lots of enthusiasm with lots of suggestions and helpful tips for our stay. The rooms are average size equipped with the basics - bed, closet, drawer and bedside table space. The bathrooms are shared with another room (although we never had a problem with running into our neighbours or waiting for the bathroom) and were clean (although be prepared, slightly aged). Fresh towels, clean beds, great communal space and kitchen (we cooked all of our breakfasts - saved so much money!) iron and ironing board available, ladies even a hairdryer if you need one. Overall, a great, welcoming place. I've already recommended it to friends who have stayed and loved it, and can't wait to go back myself. Would definitely say it's a great place for younger people - you're getting what you pay for. Besides, it's New York City, why waste money on a place you won't even be in for the majority of the night and day! The location is perfect as well, 3 minute walk to Grand Central, right in the centre of the busiest, most popular places in New York. Borderline Upper East Side, it's 10 mins to Central Park, and a block from a great supermarket. Very pleased, definitely will be back soon.
