I planned a trip to NYC but my accommodation fell through at the last minute, so I booked a room with the NY Moore simply because it was the cheapest that I could find. I am so glad that I picked it, for a hostel it is very good indeed. The room that I stayed in was very spacious and clean (apart from a bit of dust on the skirting boards), the bathroom was spotless. The staff are very friend and helpful, and it is very near to quite a few subways; easy access to the city. I most definitely recommended The room that I was shown to by a member of staff the was not made up before I arrived, i had to wait outside the room until the maids were finished.
I liked: 1- parking ease 2- proximity to everything 3- facilities (lounge and common area and coffee) 4- comfortable bed I disliked: 1- internet sucks! 2- staff can be irritating sometimes 3- one of my roomies smelled really bad. Made it tough to sleep 4- lockers could be converted to coded locks to avoid having to bring own padlock.
Great place to stay if you are traveling alone to NYC Na
+ Convenient location near 1 line or just a bit further to B and C lines + Locker was larger enough for 1 backpack, a grocery bag of stuff, and a medium-sized duffel bag. And still extra room, too! + All staff I encountered were really nice and helpful! + I left my pants in the shower stall for probably over 12 hours and they ended up in the lost and found. What a bonus! + Chargers *inside* the lockers and near the bed are super helpful and pretty safe
you expect little of a hostel in N-Y city and this one made the $40 a lot more than just a night in a budget accomodation! I have been in far more expensive hostels in the City and they are no match for this one. Definitely recommended.
Nice staff, good location, very clean, hip vibes
location The horrible staff that "blacklisted" me being a New York state resident. I was also unimpressed by the clogged toilets full of feces and the obvious hard drug use among the staff. They seemed to make a sport out of making guests feel and unwelcome and intimidated; as if I was checking in as an inmate. "Blacklist" or not, I would rather sleep in the snow than come back here.
Location is great for ne I don't remember the last time I overheard that many people complained that the staff really don't care. It felt like the staff were just there to collect their paycheck and it's a job they really don't care about as they have something better to do
Bed was relatively comfortable, temperature was just right (not too cold, however this is subjective), towel provided, shower facilities are alright but the walls between the shower cubicles are very transparent which I am not used to. Also the hooks to hang your towel and clothes in the shower is too high for me (I am about 5"4 or 1.6m, and have to tiptoe). They should cater to the shorter females as well. My stay at ISH was from June 17 to 19. On my last night, at about 4.45am I woke up and saw the lights were on. I remember that I switched them off the night before so I sat up in my bed, confused for a while. Suddenly a male entered my room with his luggage and told me that the reception had given him the same room as me. We were sharing the same room (I am a female)! I was very shocked and even more confused but since it was already very late at night I did not object (he had a few luggages with him and it was already late). In the morning when I checked out, I told the receptionist that a male entered my room last night and that the hostel had put him in the same room as me. The receptionist checked and said she did not see him in the system. Bullshit! I told her that she could go up to my room and see for herself as he was sleeping in the lower bunk as we speak! It is indeed very horrifying that they put a male and female together in the same room and I was lucky that the male had no bad intentions. I will never choose ISH again for this extremely bad experience. Also, the women's toilet locks are unreliable and I nearly got locked in one of the cubicles!! I read other reviews and another guest mentioned the same thing. Very unpleasant visit indeed.
The staff was extremely kind The smells, the random people who seemed to be living in some of the rooms, the dodgy showers.
I picked the YMCA because it was a cheap option that wasn't quite a youth hostel and was very close to an event I was attending at the Brooklyn Expo Center. Not much in the way of amenities, but I got a decent-sized room that was simple but clean. The staff were all helpful. Basically what I expected for my money. Shared bathrooms and no mirrors in the rooms are slight (but expected) downsides, though the ladies' room was clean and the showers worked well. Right after I arrived an employee made her way through the halls spraying air freshener will-nilly, so the place reeked of fake flowers for a while, but luckily that faded.
Location is very good The front desk staff are far from been friendly The bed is very small The restroom and the bathroom accessory are in very poor condition. Water pressure is low and the temperature of it vary from ice cold to burning hot without touching the faucets
staff very courteous and effective. Rooms had Wi-Fi very, very shabby
Clean, but the heating battery didn´t work properly so it was quite chilly in the room.
Every person that I saw coming to the front desk, including me, would have a reservation problem. Or it wasn't registered, or a different number of people were booked. If you stay there more than one night, expect to have to change rooms!
Staff were very nice and helpful. Room very small, but as I expected. Bed comfortable and accommodations were great for the price.
The mattress of the room was criminal and there is plenty of room to improve the premises of the hotel and its rooms. The price is high for the quality obtained.
The hotel was nice,but staff was really rude and unwilling to help you. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to people witch are looking for a hostel like experience. Staff,Staff,Staff,especially male Caucasian guy. He was rude to me and my sister.
Good location, nice atmosphere, cleaner than the average hostel in NYC always a long line at the reception desk
Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. Our hotel door was jammed a bit and was hard to open and close. The door knob was also broken so you would have to turn it all the way and basically kick the door to open it.
The staff were really helpful and the room was very clean The room was not available for us on the first night and we were checked in at another hotel. Also the tv didn't work, there was no iPod dock and the shower valve was unreliable.
The room was clean, the staff were awesome I honesty did not have any dislikes
Reading reviews over Broadway Hotel & Hostel on the internet, we had low expectation and was prepared for the worst. But we were pleasantly surprised on arrival on how good this hotel is. We had the Double Bed / Deluxe Room. The room was clean and spacious. Excellent bed with clean sheets. Nice, clean bathroom and clean towels everyday. Two blocks away from the subway station, and lot of nice restaurants / cafes in the neighborhood. no water cooker, no phone
The sitting room was nice and big with a few tvs. The beds are bunkbeds. The lockers in Room 326 did not close so you could not put a lock on them.
There were the problems with hot water in the bathrooms (2nd floor) in the morning during my stay in the hostel
nothing. the person on the phone was super rude. it was late and obviously they could give to shits that it's raining and it's 11pm and you've double booked me. im sure this place in nice but c'mon. you don't double book and make it seem like it's the customer's fault. and then don't help them book another hotel or motel or whatever. god knows if i even got my money back. don't really care. thanks guys.
Privacy and friendliness of staff
Location is ok The rooms do not have a roof, just because the owners think they are smart by selling you "privacy" but really all they do is set wood boards between beds, so you book a room and get a 60 bed room, noisy, smelly and the bathrooms are the worst I have seen in NY, had to change hotels but lost all money because it was non refundable of course.
Clean, friendly staff and based in a good location
The location I'm no picky guy, but it's definitely an experience to sleep in a room that is 21 square feet ( 6' by 3.5' ). It's always a question of the 'bang for the buck', and I'd rather pay $90 on groupon for 100+ square feet with my own space rather than $50 for 21 square feet.
