For a hotel without a pool, this hotel reeks oddly of chlorine-- but hey, at least you know everything is clean! Small rooms still leave space for a chair and desk area along the twin bed, and mini fridges and microwaves make the space feel like a dormitory more than anything else. Clean bathrooms are shared between two rooms. The elevator is a major perk for this budget hotel, many of which are strictly walk-up. The lack of lobby area (the only space in the hotel with WiFi) is made up for with the lushness of Riverside Park, which is right across the street from Riverside Tower. A short walk up 80th Street leads to a plethora of stores and restaurants, some of which are 24 hours, to complete your Wifi and entertainment needs.

This budget hotel in the Upper West Side is perfect for younger travelers who don't mind single beds, sharing bathrooms and having limited amenities. If you have a larger group you could get adjoining rooms so that you can avoid sharing the bathroom with strangers. And you can also spend a bit more to upgrade to a room with a double bed.
If you're hoping to save a few bucks and host your own happy hour in your room there is a microwave, and mini-fridge at your disposal. There's a small seating area in the rooms too so you can have those late night snacking and gabbing sessions with your friends.
Unfortunately there's only wifi available in the lobby. What I'm most looking forward to is the opening of their coffeehouse that will be located next to the front desk that they hope to open later this summer.
