It's a great place for the price. I stayed in the smallest room and it was pretty cramped, but I knew that going in and for me it was worth the cheap rent. You get to be in Harlem which is convenient and has a lot of cheap food. I only once had a problem with utilities and it was caused by my roommate, Andrew was quick to come in and fix it the same day. The common spaces are cleaned weekly and some pots and pans are provided so it's a very convenient place to live. I never saw any bugs or pests in my room which is definitely a positive. I never had any noise complaints, but to be fair I almost always had headphones on. After moving to my new place I really do better appreciate how convenient it was at this place and how helpful Andrew is.
I would recommend bringing a hand vacuum because my room got dusty a few times.
Fair warning that the nearby 56 train station is sketchy after dark, but the 23 is the same distance away and has no problems. I did have some negative encounters on Lenox but I guess that's New York. There were also plenty of nice people like the ones I met at the laundromat across the street. - Cesar H.
