    Location, lock on your door, you get exactly what you pay for. The room doesn't have a sound proof ceiling. You will hear everything, exactly like a hostel. I paid for the location and the lock on my door.

    bed was on the short side, and a little lumpy. I am 5'10 and I would presume if I was 6 feet tall or 6 feet 2 inches I might not have been able to fit comfortably on the bed and sleep well.

    If you want a dog kennel or Harry Potter's cupboard experience.

    It was fairly clean. And the 9pm quiet time meant people were quiet (But also meant you had to go OUTSIDE to 8th avenue to make a phone call).

    They weren't rooms, they were kennels. No ceilings, so you can hear your neighbor snore and the bathroom and shower and walking and everything. If you are taller than 5'9", then plan for sleeping diagonally on your tiny bed since your head and feet will touch either wall. The rooms are the length of the bed exactly, with about 1.5 feet of space next to the bed (so perhaps 6 feet by 4 feet rooms?) Morning stretching? Forget about it. If you're claustrophobic at all, you will want to leave.

    Perfectly tiny rooms in a clean and peaceful spot

    If you're ok with having little space, this place is great. It's clean, the staff is great, the guests all seem to respect both privacy and quiet, the bathrooms were spotless and the rooms, while very small, had storage space for your bag, a clean bed and a small bed side table/desk. I went there to unwind and reflect, and it was the perfect location.

    While everyone respects the quiet of the space, you can still hear pretty much everything, from footsteps to bag rustling. It's totally quiet after 11pm, but if a guest needs to leave at 5am and you're a light sleeper, you'll likely hear them. Otherwise, no complaints!

    very very budget, but great staff

    location, staff, vegetarian friendly

    room walls are paper thin with no ceilings so you hear everything around you from coughing to conversations to snoring. Earplugs are a must. The showers were terrible though. No hot water in most of the showers and if someone else was showering in a nearby shower stall forget having any water pressure.

    A night or two is ok

    Comfy bed, albeit short. Plenty of hot water in the morning. Friendly staff and a good location.

    It's very noisy at night so if you are a light sleeper you might want to look elsewhere. The rooms are essentially cubicles with locking doors so sound travels easily throughout the floor.
