Ymca is a very pocket friendly hotel in nyc. The location is easily accessible by metro.
Very international back packers.
In our booking, wit was stated that no check in allow after 12 mid night. Our flight was delayed and we tried contacting them. They never pick up calls after numerous tries. We even left a voice mail and email. Luckily we arrived just before mid night.
Upon arrival, we did the 'first part' of check in and was told to do '2 nd' part on the morning. They even took our passport.
The next day,they lost the check in card we filled the night before and was told thatbwe could pay when we check out but5 minutes later,was told to pay.
The room is clean and no bed bugs HOWEVER although we are on the 10th floor, we can still hear the traffic downstairs. There is an air condition in The room, but it was extremely noisy, imagine a car with the engine turn on in the room. It's loud. The corridor was also noisy with ppl slamming their doors and talking loudly. On sunday night, i guess the cleaners were cleaning the toilet at 3 am. It was VERY noisy... Perhaps we are also unlucky enough to have a group of noisy spanish students staying on the same floor...so, be ware, it's not sound proof.
The rooms are clean with thick mattress and a small fridge. The bath room....it's shared and you can only use the 7th, 10th and 11th floor. The bath room has alot of hair on the floor. I think, it will be great if they have more bath rooms on every floor, either you wake up early to use the toilet or queue.
Wifi is only available on the common room on the ground floor.
In all, if you are really on a tight budget and dont mind noise, this is a good place. Cheap but i couldnt really recommend it though...
