The rooms were very small (like everything in NYC) but if you are looking for a place to sleep it works very well. The buffet was awesome, it had very tasty food at a very cheap rate. I'd definitely recommend it if you are looking for a cheap hostel.

We stayed here 3 nights and found the hostel pretty average. We were on the 9th floor which was obviously one that hadn't been done up yet so was a bit different to the photos on the website. The room itself was small but fine and what we expected but the bathroom facilities could do with an update... They were... More

I booked a room via phone with the on site staff of this hostel in July for a stay in September. While booking, the on site staff made me aware that the reservation staff off site had a habit of deleting reservations made in house so she made notes on my reservation not to move my room. I called in... More

The room was basic and small but clean and the Bathroom was ok. Location is perfect if you want to explore Manhattan! Located at the Central Park, close to supermarkets. Good and cheap breakfast at the streets.

I got bed bug bites all over my body from my stay in a room at this YMCA in early September. The staff tried to imply I brought the bugs with me (did I take a bus or train?) They gave me another room, but did not offer to clean my clothes or reimburse me or even say sorry. In... More

My partner and I stayed in 2 different rooms during our time in New York (due to a Niagra trip half way through) and it was excellent! The other reviews on here seem a little unfair. This is a budget hostel not a high end hotel and it actually provides great value for money in my opinion. The location is... More

There are a lot of reviews on here and other places that make this place out to be quite crappy, but for how cheap it is in the middle of New York I don't see how anyone can complain? Me and my girlfriend stayed in a private room with shared bathrooms and found it quite adequate. The sheets, room and... More

Great location, half block away from central park. Very close to several museums. The rooms are big and amazing. Everything is very clean and very safe. Very close to many subway stations. Many activities available in the facility.
