Mice ate some of the gifts we had bought. I spotted a mouse in our room on return from a night out. On inspection of our belongings it had climbed into our bags and ate through packets to chew on some gifts we had bought. It is clear there is a rodent problem in the building as there were notices around saying that the exterminators had been round recently.
There was an unbelievably bad stench coming from the shared fridge when the door was opened that lingered for several minutes.
This is not a hostel, however is a 3 bedroomed appartment with 1 shower/toilet to share between the 8 or so guests. The address given is not the address of the accomodation, however is that of a comdemned buidling. On arrival the owner (I preseme he is the owner) meets you at the address of the condemned building and walks you up to the real address that you stay at.
Location is brilliant, that could not be faulted. On 9th Avenue between 43rd and 44th street in the Hells Kitchen area. The room was basic but the building was quiet.More
