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.

If you can avoid it, avoid it. Quite expensive. I was a girl, staying 10 nights there, on the 13 floor: the "luxury" one: still you can see the pictures, not quite clean. I had stained sheets, which weren't changed for like 4 days. Once I went to the bathroom around midnight, one guy almost naked in his room asked... More

It was a good place to sleep downtown: close to interesting places, subway station and central park. Clean and more relax than other places asking the same prices: good deal. The fitnes room is nice as well for who wants.

The room was ok, the sheets were clean. However, the bed had rollers like an office chair and that would wake me up each time I turned around in it. The room was quite spacious considering it was a single room. The biggest problem I had with the hygiene in the bathroom. With literally no ventilation it was stuffy and... More
