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...

Location is awesome, beds OK, price was rock-bottom. Plan to spend waking time outside, as there's nothing other than beds inside. Near Lincoln Center, Central Park, Carnegie Hall, Ghostbusters apartment.

It's a massive Hostel with pool and gym, 2 minutes walking from Central Park and Subway station.. The room was very small and basic but with everything that you need, and very clean.. If you are in New York you won't spend a lot of time in the Hostel so if you are traveling low budget it's perfect! =)

What more could you ask for, with central park literally on your doorstep and walking access to all of Manhattans attractions. The room was clean and just big enough for one person, and never had an issue with the shared bathroom. If you're after luxury this is not the place, but if you're after cheap. comfortable and friendly accommodation then... More

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.
