We were staying at YMCA west side in august for one week with my boyfriend. This was our 4 time in new york. Location was AWESOME, we walked almost everywhere! Metro station was near, starbucks was near, Duane reader was near..! Room was clean. We booked a bunk-bed, but luckily we got two beds. Every day we get fresh towels and I'm not sure if the sheets were also changed every day. There were quite a lot teenagers that time, but luckily we didn't hear them making noice. Air condition was good and it wasn't too hot to sleep (what i was afraid of because august is VERY hot in NY). And BIG PLUS was the GYM!! And it was FREE!! We've been in Philly and DC also, in a 5 star hotel were was also gym, but i don't know how they could even call it a gym :D. But this YMCA gym was very good!! I recommend to go there if you stay this hostel.
But every place has also minus side.. eventho the room was clean, I have to say that shared bathrooms here not so cool.. I have been in shared bathrooms every time in NY, but this was first time when i saw a cockroach.. and some other bugs.. in a bathroom. I hate all kind of bugs and i was in shower when i saw one big cockroach under a warmer.. then i saw about 5 small black bugs in the wall. It was quite disgusting, but I have so say that i get to used to them.. they didn't move, they were just hanging in their own places.. lol!
So if you want just a good place to stay and great location (and maybe do little work out;) i really recommend this place!! :)
