I've stayed at this place twice. What made me come back? The price and the location. It's probably the cheapest place to stay at, so it can't be that fancy. It's ok, though. It's right next to Central Park and just a 10 minute walk from Times Square. There's a subway station close by. The rooms are ok. Don't expect... More

Good hostel if you are alone or with friends and want to spend some days in NYC. Fabulous position, close to Central Park and close to Columbus Circle with subway station (lines A, B, C, D, 1 with connection to the north Manhattan / Harlem / The Bronx and to lower Manhattan / Brooklyn). Broadway and Times Square are 5/10... More

We had a great stay at West side YMCA, the Price is affordable, the location is great and the staff friendly. The toilets always weren't that clean, but that's to expect when so Many people share. It's close to The metro and If you like to walk you Can walk to the midtown.

A tiny dirty room here cost me $120 a night. There were ants in one of the common private bathrooms that I used on floor 10 where the "deluxe" rooms are. The locations is excellent, though, so if you don't mind dirt and a mattress that is as stiff as a board this is your choice By the way, the... More

So I stayed only for one night and for that purpose I think this could be a good option. I stayed in a private room and it is a very small room with a desk, a little tv and a small closet. The room was not the cleanest, I'm not a very picky person and I can adapt easily for... More

Things I didn't like: bed was on rollers on a hard floor. Why?? Take the rollers off please, very... More

My fiancé and I made the terrible mistake of waiting until a few weeks before our week in New York to book our accommodation. And yes, we did try AirBnB and Couchsurfing. For $175USD per night we got a tiny room with two single bunks. The first room we were given stunk of cigarette smoke, so we asked to be... More
