The location of the hostel is quite convenient. Takes maybe 10-15 minutes to walk to Times square from the hostel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was quite nice, with a small tv screen in the corner and a small closet were we could hang our clothes. In the lobby of the hostel is a small shop... More

It's hard to find cheap accommodation in New York, but we did our best and booked a double room in New York. This is a enormous hostel, with a lot of guests... Most of them older.

Very basic hostel in a great location, covers all grounds. Nothing fancy at all, but for the price and location it can't be beaten. Bathrooms where a little untidy but that was due to the messiness of other patrons- not lack of cleaning by staff, they were cleaned daily, but probably could of used one extra clean, fresh sheets and...

Had to PAY for luggage storage, which is in a secure location, behind security desk, many cameras pointing at the door. When I return to YMCA less than 4 hours after putting my luggage in safe area, I check my things only to find my Ipad had been stolen!!! The man at security refused to help, said that was nothing...

Staying in Upper West Side

Neighborhood Profile
Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theater performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
