We stayed at the Greenpoint YMCA August 2-10. The rooms are basic and clean. HOWEVER- on day 5 of my stay I noticed I was getting huge hive like itchy swells on my arms and legs. Throughout the day more and more splotches showed up until I was pretty much covered in what I thought were hives. I came to... More

Wanted a centrally located, clean and safe place to stay on relatively short notice and got all of these things with the Brooklyn YMCA. Our simple 'Deluxe' room fit the bill with 2 twin beds-the AC was a relief from the summer heat. The room and bathrooms were clean, with no bugs or vermin and sight. Staff were friendly enough,...

I have stayed at Greenpoint YMCA in April 2008 for 10 days. The staff were absolutely fantastic and (even when very busy) good fun. The room (deluxe) was very clean, equiped with a working TV, AC, and a table fan. The furniture was in very good condition. Never spotted any cockroches or mices. The Breakfast is included as well as... More

Having spent five weeks at the Greenpoint YMCA during March and April, 2008, I feel reasonably qualified to offer a review of the facilities, the staff, the location, and the surrounding area. I moved into the Greenpoint 'Y' on Monday, March 17, 2008, and stayed for a full 28 days before moving out for two nights to the North Brooklyn/12... More

Located in vibrant,safe working class neighborhood. My girlfriend and I stayed four days and found the staff reasonably helpful and our room clean. Contrary to some earlier reviews we read,there were no signs of rodents or bugs in the room. We each received a breakfast ticket good for use at a family restaurant nearby. And when we didn't have hot... More

Overall, the stay was great. We booked a 2 bedroom room for a week in september. The hostel is in a mostly polish neighbourhood but it seemed very safe. The staff at the desk arnt that helpful but we only needed to deal with them the day you get there, every morning for your breakfast tickets and when you are... More

I had a 28-day stay here in November 2007. I'm no stranger to budget accommodations having stayed in NYC Ys before as well as the Bowery Whitehouse Hostel, which is essentially a flophouse. I wasn't expecting much, but the Greenpoint Y was still disappointing. I booked a "deluxe" room and ended up in 412. There’s no elevator in this building... More

I just returned from a week long stay at the Greenpoint YMCA beginning late October, 2007. I had stayed there a year earlier and after reading the two most recent posts on this forum, I was wondering if the place had gone downhill since last year's stay. My experience was different from those two posters. All the hallways have recently... More

I am not a stranger to budget accommodation, and I knew Greenpoint YMCA was cheap and therefore didn't expect any sort of luxury, but this place is just really awful. The room was dirty - inches of dust piled in the corners, under the bed and under the radiator, and the carpet was greasy and full of stains. There were... More

I was scheduled to stay at the Greenpoint YMCA for four nights. I stayed only two and checked out on the third day. As others have noted (and I should have believed), there were mice and what I unfortunately think are bedbugs running rampant. I saw evidence of neither the first night, but both the second. That's what got me... More
