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.
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.
Great place to stay if you are traveling alone to NYC Na
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.
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.
