      I recently discovered this place and I have not been dissapointed. I would say there's about 25 to 30 rooms, about 15 of those are closed off to people who pay extra to rent the rooms (with private lockers inside) and you get a key to lock it when you exit the room to use other parts of the facilities. In all the times I've been there, the only time a staff member has been semi rude was when the asian guy was working. The other staff has always been nice, pleasent and helpful, the asian guy's tone comes across as annoyed and I have a hunch he''s either hard of hearing or doesn't understand English that well (possibly a combination of both). Now the guys that go there, it's a nice mix of latino, asian and/or black - most look to be around 30-45, sometimes you get a guy or two in their late 20's. I'm all about the thick daddy's and this place does not dissapoint for that. I've had a lot of hot times with latino, asian and black daddy's there, most seem to be vers, but there's always someone new walking in to satisfy your need. I've had a great time every time I've been there, I've fullfilled whatever craving I'm having that day and have fooled around with some very hot guys. Like a lot of people said before, don't go to this place thinking you're going to a 5 star hotel, its a sex club, guys go there to fuck, get fucked, suck, get sucked and everything else in between. A lot of the guys look to be on the DL because they want to bust their nut and run out, hiding under their caps and hoodies, which can be kinda hot. I always keep my sneakers on, some guys go fully naked with a towel around their waist, but I rather wear my sneakers, pair of shorts/underwear and carry my towel around, in case things get sweaty. :)

      Old and run down. Sauna is permanently closed and there is no steam room. Do not sit on the cloth sofas in the movie room----LICE and very resistant to treatments. They try to change the sheets often in the cubicle rooms but there are not that many rooms so not really changed often enough. Free coffee. Even at $10, this place is not worthwhile.

      The WORST ever
      Condemned properties are in better condition than this rat hole. Ratings should be dated. DO NOT PATRONIZE!

      Very nice place
      Some of the people who reviewed this place are on the arrogant side...I go here maybe 3-4 times a year and have never been disappointed. And the management here couldn't be nicer. One time, when I was settled into my room in the back, the owner of the place came by. I invited him in. We got along great. Obviously, I was already undressed. I invited him to do the same and he happily complied. When we were both finished, my sheets were a little wet and he arranged to get me clean ones immediately. I'll go back as ofter as I can. It's a great place!

      Relaxed good time choice of the average
      Regulars, young, old, Hispanic, Asian, White, Black, fat, thin, sometimes handsome sometimes not. The whole expanse of humanity is here. Cliquish sometimes, those constantly on smart phone texting are here too. Some less than appealing park themselves for hours but a good time can be had if you are patient. Closed doors give the legal expectation of privacy you chose. There is always someone new and exciting to meet. I have never left unsatisfied This place is not A class, but is resonably as clean as a well worn bath can be. This is not a place of arrogant buff boys but of average men looking for a interesting time away from the world. Its only 10 buck of 15 for a room. Its worth 2 trips to see that you can enjoy it

      Among the rudest service I have ever encountered.
      Because there is very little info on this location, and there is no website, one would have to call to find out about the hours and cost. I called, and after only getting a chance to ask half of a question, was immediately hanged up on. I called back a few seconds later to ask about my other question, and the guy on the phone was flat out rude, yelling, accusing me of calling many times before, (everyday,) then hanging up abruptly once again, before I had a chance to respond. I immediately called back and asked to speak to a manager, and the same guy answers back claiming he is the manager. This incident may say speak volumes about the clubs' clientele. Other reviews I have found about this place, state that the service is friendly, well, after my one time encounter, I wouldn't recommend tolerating such abuse. Try West Side/East Side Club Saunas instead, as I have been to those places and have had way better experiences.

      friendly atmosphere
      Even though the place is not very well kept, (what do you expect for $10 AND NO ANNUAL MEMBERSHIP FEE!!!), the staff and the people who go there are relatively friendly. I like the mixed crowd, even though alot of old and out of shape guys go(AGAIN, what do you expect with no annual membership fee). It varies from day to day what type of crowd goes, specially during the rush hour period, after 4 pm. I continue going because of the great variety of guys that go there, minus the old and the out of shape ones. The fact that alot of Asians and Latinos go there is the only reason that I still go, when I have a chance. My advice to first timers is to go with no high expectations and to try to give the place another chance. Going only one time is just not doing justice for the place. It's like the lottery,"Hey, you just never know".

      Northern may not be the cleanest, but I feel it's one of the few places that carrie the old school swag of gay bath houses, I am to young to know what they looked like but al I have are movies, skin flick that keep the memoirs alive.Something about the smell of sweat and sex is a deep inflection of a young mans sexual fire. I enjoy going when I so going once in a while, and other then the the mature men with year of hurt pride, I wish the steem room worked.

      I went and it was dirty, smelly and did not look like it was cleaned in years, the lobby if you want to call it that had things they found in the street, no star

    • Information, please
      So many fans and so few comments. Other than the negative ones, that is. As I have learned that someone can dislike something for the exact same reasons that I like it, well, some commentary from this venue's fans would be, well, it would be instructive. Sorry if this is a review of the reviews.

      the most disgusting place i have ever seen
      This is truly the most disgusting place I have ever seen. I've been to some pretty shady places in my life (one of the perks of being a gay man in NYC), but this one beats all. It is filthy beyond anything I could have imagined. I knew, from previous reports, that it wasn't going to be the Hilton, but it is infested with insects (both of the human kind and non-human kind). Beware! Beware!

      Northern visit
      After reading some of the review I decided to experiment for myself and whet to check it out. As I enter the location I notice that how filthy, abandon and outdate all around. Some of the furniture were a left the street as unwanted. D├ęcor, very difficult to determine if you were in a bath house, the orient or western world. Client, well they were OK. Recommendation, do not waste your $$$

      This place was just terrible. The guys where mostly fat or had beer guts. They wear all too touchy touchy and had looking problems which I blame myself for because I seemed to be the only attractive person in there. One guy was upset because he wanted me to cOne to the back with him but I kept declining. When all of them look like they are 35 and up. The actual sauna is not working. The guys wear all thirsty for ass that they would follow you around and walk around looking for you. I in all don't mean to talk bad about anyone but this was my first time going to such a place and I don't look forward to going back. The $10 I spent to get in could have been used for gas instead. I don't recommend this place for anyone.
