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.

3 of us stayed in a private family room which had two double beds. Seeing as NYC had such expensive accommodation, we were very happy with what we got. The rooms are tiny - but who cares as we were hardly in it. I found the bathrooms clean enough. It was very close to the subway and didn't seem like... More

I had booked a room here prior to reading other's reviews. My boyfriend then read the reviews from here and other sites and we started to get a little skeeved out. However, for $79/night for 2 people, 2 blocks from where we needed to be, we were willing to risk it and packed plastic sheeting and our own linens to... More

I have traveled the world and visited around 30 countries, during my travels I have stayed in numerous hostels and hotels. I can say for certainty that this is the worst. I have never written a review before simply because I am easily pleased and never felt the need to comment on accommodation however I feel compelled to publicly criticise... More

Yes the place is a bit run down and the accommodation is basic but I saw no evidence of the 'bug infestation'. Great location and friendly staff. Free access to the gym and free breakfast (don't forget to ask). Only downside there isn't a bathroom on every floor so might be a bit of a trek but not the end... More

I had a lovely time in the YMCA, but you have to be used to backpackers and see through the dirt a bit. We arrived late at night only to find out that the YMCA has messed up our booking and had booked us a room in Queens YMCA. They did not have any twin rooms left....So after a lot... More

I'm a fan of the YMCA and its staff, but after being in bed for less than an hour on my first night at Greenpoint last night I woke up covered in bites and discovered bugs all over the bed. Spent the rest of the night pacing the room (it was 3am and raining, and Greenpoint YMCA does not have... More

I lived in Greenpoint for a number of years and went back recently to visit. It's a wonderful little place with real character thanks to the local Polish culture. The same can not be said for the Y however. There are just too many negatives to list; including rats, dirty rooms and dodgy guests. Stay anywhere else but here.
