Rooms are pretty ordinary, furniture is decades old and the lobby smells as well. On positive side, rooms are clean and breakfast is free. Also, the prices are comparatively better. Suggestion to customers: Search for rooms through Kayak/Priceline/Expedia, etc., BUT book through calling them. I paid $99/night on booking.com, whereas on-the-spot booking in person/on call was $74/night. Yes, 25% differential!... More

The place is very simple but is clean. Even late at night it is very safe. The staff is nice. You get vouchers for an american breakfast in a restaurant quite close. I don t know where they had the pictures of the room from..

Clean room, nice and helpful staff, appropriate price. Because I read review about free breakfast, I asked about that but without success, they told me that because of my type of room i can not obtain voucher for breakfast. But I am not sure, as they offer only one type of room (booked through hostelworld.com).

My brother and I stayed at the Greenpoint YMCA for 5 days while visiting New York. The hostel itself is nothing special but perfectly adequate for the price paid - room was basic but clean, the communal bathroom was well maintained, staff were helpful. However we felt like we had been mislead when booking the hostel - firstly, the 'professional'... More

I expected a YMCA facility to be safe and secure this one was directly opposite the police station. Parking was very limited. First the greenpoint YMCA is not handicap accessible - there is no elevator or ramps to access the 2 or 3rd floors. The first room they showed me was on the 3rd floor and the third floor ladies...

If you need WiFi, you won't find it here. The passwords handed out don't work; you'll be forced to access the Internet in the restrooms (one of two per sex) or one mini-scule computer room for four floors, which long-term guests who have nothing better to do usually occupy for hours. Or, you can pay an exorbitant fee to use... More

The room was clean, good quality for the price. The only problem was the bathrooms, the men's bathroom is too small for the quantity of rooms, and it's on the second floor. It's in brooklyn, so it gives you a change to explore another part of New York City, besides the crowded Manhattan.
