Just sloppy and unorganized. Looked like an old beaten down version of what used to be a nice hotel. Bed was missing a headboard and pillows were propped up against a dirty wall. Broken curtain rod, no hand soap. Dustballs and dirt all throughout the hotel. Broken elevator. The lobby was empty at 3pm on a Sunday when we arrived to check in. No one greeted us at the door or the front desk. We just waited and waited there with another guest for some one to appear until we decided...view more to walk upstairs to call someone down to check us in. The pro's were - friendly staff, soft bed and good location. But for the price, there are plenty of other hotels at this location.view less

- First of all, we slept the first night in the hotel, but the day after the
rooms wasn't made.
- During the second night, at 3:30AM, a vigil entered our rooms; giving as a
pretext that the rooms were occupied by other people. Do the hotel offer more
vacation than they have rooms ? Due to the stress of this intrusion, we weren't
able to sleep anymore this night. Moreover, we had to drive to Québec the day
- Last, the park associated with the hotel was announced $18/24h b...view morey a manager of
the park, but was in fact $38/24h. If they can make the difference between a '3'
and a '1' I imagine the troubles with the salaries.
So, I find all these events unacceptable for a city like NY which is shown so
beautiful on TV.
I striclty not recommend you this hotel.view less
Habitat is ideal for students, or those on a budget, who are more interested in exploring the city than spending time in their hotel. I admit that the shared shower was a bit scary (bring flip flops!), but being so close to the subways and to major shopping areas made it worth it. The only big problem I had was when the staff had trouble finding my reservations and with their reluctance to give me the student discount (which they eventually did). As for the room itself, I found the si...view moreze okay, but I'm used to dormitory living. Overall, I'd probably go back to the Habitat. It's perfect for those who will be spending a minimal amount of time in their rooms and who have better things to spend their money on than overpriced hotel rooms.view less
Although this hotel was a value compared to other hotels in New York, I still paid way too much for the room. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. The room was tiny, it did not have a private bathroom, the bed was uncomfortable, the list is endless...very disappointing!!
... it isn't convienient to have to go down the hall to take a shower and go to the bathroom. My boyfriend and I stayed here only for the weekend and thats about all anyone would be able to handle of this place. Staff for most part were nice except for one person in particular. If you don't plan on staying in your room that long stay at this place. Just don't forget to bring towels, shampoo, soap, maybe some slippers to walk down the hall with...
We stayed at the Habitat in Jan 2002. It was a disaster - tiny, dirty rooms, horrible trundle bed that blocked the door when we pulled it out. Someone peed in the corridor and it wasn't cleaned up for three days. The people in the next room to us kept up a 24-hour party, for three days. No sleep for us and despite complaining numerous times, we weren't moved. No way would I go there again. The only good thing was that after I wrote and complained, I got my money back. Too late - my tri...view morep to NYC was ruined.view less
Last August, planning my trip, I discovered this place here on Citysearch and was reluctant to book it because of the bad reviews but did anyway because it was cheap and I knew what I was getting in to. If you are okay with the fact the the rooms are small (my dormroom was about 3 times as big) and there are communal bathrooms and showers and just need a place to lay your head at night then you will enjoy the Habitat. If you want king size beds, room service, adult pay-per-view movies ...view moreand a concierge who can get you anything....stay at the Plaza. The service was okay, the staff was cool, the room was clean, the bathrooms and showers were clean and it's in a great location. I will difinitely be staying there again....for that price I can't afford not to.view less
