Very basic accomodaiton, but cheap and in a good location in the West End of NYC. Wifi was extremely slow which made planning the rest of our week in NY a bit annoying. Stayed here for 2 nights, don't know too much about the places facilities as spent most of the time exploring the city.

My issue is not with my room, although it was marginal. The room was clean and the box spring with a paper-thin pad was surprisingly OK once you got in bed. The room had no drawers or selves for clothing, just a closet with 3 hangers (yes, I should have known better than to decide not to bring my own)... More

Location of this hotel / hostel is amazing, walking distance to Time Square, accross the road from Central Park. Rooms are very reasonably priced, I stayed in a single room for around a $120 per night. I had 1 single bed in my room along with an aircon unit which was perfectly adequate. There was a small TV and cuboard... More

I stayed here for a night. Checked in late at 10 pm without any problems. The room was mostly clean in a don't look too closely at the walls or walk barefoot kind of way. Very basic old style spring mattress, but the bedding was clean. All of which is perfectly acceptable considering the price and the location. My biggest... More

The staff was friendly and I knew the rooms would be fairly small but were clean enough. I felt very safe as there was always someone at the front desk to answer questions and verify you were a guest there. Very much like college dorms but you are traveling so much in NYC that you are rarely there! These rooms... More

We stayed for three nights. It was only a couple of blocks from the subway, and right across the street from Central Park. If you are wanting something luxurious and extra comfortable, do not stay here. But if you want a cheap bed and shower in New York City, this place was perfect. I felt safe, it was relatively clean,... More

YMCA has a fantastic location - just few blocks from Columbus circle, Central Park and Lincoln Center. About 10 blocks from Times Square. Walking distance, nice neighborhood - I can't be more happy. Cleanness is great too, staff is really polite and nice. Shared bathroom was also clean all the time. There was a small closet and a tv and... More

We stayed for 6nights,check in was quick. Room was on the 10th floor. It was good, nothing extra but the "walking closet" was nice. And it was good to have own tv. Wifi was qucik. The bunk bed was bit scary but we managed. The location is extraordinary. 5minutes to Lincoln center, few more minutes to subway station.

The location is good, very close to a subway station, but... I didn't like it. I know it's New York and everything is more than overpriced, but... Still!! They charge for baggage storage. The bathroom it's horrible (no room to change, no nothing. I hated it). The room doesn't have enough outlets. The only good thing is: you don't share... More
