Trip Advisor and Priceline should be ashamed of themselves for having this garbage on their site. Linens were dirty, hair on pillows, dirty stained bedspreads. No bathroom, no air conditioning, small fan on wall with no breeze. No window, TV that gives 5 stations, 3 in Chinese, the other 2 useless. Sharing bathroom. No closet or place to hang clothes....

don't take the room with single bed. the other ones are ok. nice location. when u complain about the noise , they will do something about it. they are trying to do their best.ask them to clean your room cause it's not standard. they will help you with everything they possibly can.

This is a hostel. Forget you even see the world hotel, it is tight quarters and a shared bathroom. Not going to be a family destination but for college students and the ever flexible backpackers - this is perfect. The place smells of bleach so forget the "dirty comments" everyone leaves. The rooms are very small but guess what? There's...

Location is good, but the personal does not clean the room after you left. My friends and I stayed five days,guess how our room look last day. Also some guest were very annoying, I felt bad because was not fault of personal hotel. Even is a cheap hotel, they make an advertisement to guest must being polite with other guests.

Simply avoid it... The attached pictures show the stained bed sheets and pillows we were provided. You can also observe the humidity stains present on the ceiling which due to mold are a significant health risk. The bathrooms were abysmal and the hotel hall had a cleaning cart filled with cigarettes as it was apparently being used as an ashtray...

My friend and I stayed here for two nights and had one of the worst experiences that we ever could have. The room was barely the size of a closet and it was dingy. The light wouldn't work at first, we had to flip the switch on and off and least 10 times to get the light to turn on....

Had to stay here for 1 night. Was hot and sweaty when I arrived, and wanted a shower and head to bed. Room was a glorified, converted wardrobe, with just enough room for a bed and that's it. Went to use the communal toilet, which was blocked, so had to to the business in the shower. Just as well I...

This was the most discusting closet of a room I have ever stayed in. No a/c or even a fan. I proped the window open with a water bottle.Not worth $20.00, never mind the $150.00. You share a bathroom with everyone on that floor. The toilet was broken have the time. You have to walk up five flights of stairs.NO...

Before booking for this hotel, I've spent a lot of time reading all these reviews saying ''Unclean, loudy, hellish hostel'' but I had no other choice, being only 19 years old. We went there knowing it wouldn't been paradise and we were very surprise. It was clean, the room was just fine. The walls were indeed thin, but if your...

Room looked like closet. You have bed and TV and that's it and it was not very clean. My suitcase barely fit in the room. Disaster! I will never return here again. The only good thing was that the clerk was very nice.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families stream in to enjoy huge dim sum feasts and to stock up at the markets on Mott Street. To take a break from the buzz, grab something sweet from one of the many bakeries in the area and head to Columbus Park, where many Chinatown residents exercise, play games, and chat the day away.
