    Very low cost for NYC. Relatively clean. Good location within walking distance of the UN and the 5th Avenue area. Use of the Y's exercise facilities included in the room. It had a small refrigerator. WIFI available.

    Postage stamp sized rooms. I rented a double, in the hope of getting a slightly larger room, but found out that a double meant a two level bunk bed rather than two separate beds. I bumped my head several times. No food services except for vending machines. Fortunately there are many restaurants within easy walking distance. You share bathroom and shower facilities with the other guests. Bring your own soap as the soap dispensers were anemic at best. One of the elevators was not working. Since the clientele consisted mainly of large youth groups, it often took a while to get up to the room. No heat control. It was unusually warm for February and the heat was on full. The only way to make the temperature livable was to open the window. Anyway, this facility personifies the cliche "you get what you pay for". As I was using it for a "crash pad", it was ok, but don't expect the Waldorf.
