I know staying in NY is expensive, but If you have some respect for yourself, don't stay at Candy Hostel! It's cheap, but doesn't worth it.
We stayed there for 4 nights. We first got a dirty room infested with bed bugs and cockroaches. When we noticed the blood spots on the sheets and the bite marks on our arms and legs, we asked for another room. It was even worse. As soon as we got there we saw cockroaches, so we got back to the first one and stayed there one more night. On the next day we went to a third room, and this one was fine. So it's kind of a lottery: if you get a non-infested room, you'll have an ok experience, otherwise... We got so many bites we couldn't wear short sleeves outside cause our arms were looking disgusting and itching like hell. They took more than 2 weeks to go away.
I'm glad we got another place to stay after the 4th night, though the itching arms lasted for the rest of out trip.More
