The hotel is cheap so don't expect too much. I paid about $40 per night during the halloween weekend (2016). This is extremely cheap for NYC. I saw two beggars near Time Square with cardboards that asked for $40 and $65 needed so they can get a bed for the night (you know those shelters where the homeless can sleep for the night). That should Sun Bright's price into perspective. The bedroom floors have lots of dirty marking. The walls weren't clean. No windows in the bedroom so prepare to get hot (it did have a fan, which helped a lot). There is nothing in the room, except a bed and the fan mounted on the wall, so no place to hang your clothes, including your wet towel. Be prepared to live from your suitcase. Since the bathroom is shared, it can get dirty quickly. It looks like there are 4 bathrooms, but only 3 were functioning the weekend I was there. I forgot how many rooms were there, but the bathrooms to rooms ratio was not good. For bathrooms that was shared by so many, the shower was actually pretty clean. I wore flip flops in the bathroom. It is near two subway station. One is 0.2 miles and the other is 0.6 miles away. The 0.6 miles one is the one I used the most. Will I be staying here again. No, but that is because I can actually afford elsewhere. For people who can't afford elsewhere, it is a good choice.

Most disgusting place ever
My stay at the Sun Bright was a nightmare. Hygiene was completely lacking. The "room", a.k.a. cell, was just enough to fit the single bed, but no space for luggage. Could not take out my stuff from my bags for the 5 days I was there; nowhere to put it once out. Bed sheets were stained by blood and other bodily fluids; I slept fully clothed, including a hoodie so that my head did not touch the pillow. The shared bathrooms were way too disgusting. On the fourth day, a mouse entered my cell from under the door; that was just too much! Hygiene is a must even in the world of hostels. This was not worth 60 dollars per night. It was a rip-off! Some sanitation inspectors should come see the place and shut it down asap.

Is it worth it?
Stayed here 1 week. Public Bathrooms. Walls are very thin. They were under construction and there bugs stuck in the light, not clean, No Maid services offered or hidden from you? Getting a new shower towel was impossible. Doors do not feel safe, doors can barely open. Bed is very uncomfortable, noisy and only one pillow is given. Only go here if its your last resort. Wifi was good at least?

Most basic ever
Very tinny room, I founded a flea in my bed. Internet conection was good. If you don't care and you are not interesting about luxury and you are finding a place just to sleep and wash yourself I think is a good option otherwise is not to have a romantic stay in NYC.
