I stayed at the westside YMCA for 5 days in october 2012... right next door to central park, a great location close enough to Times Square.
Its basic, a small bed, tv,small towel provided and toilets and showers down the corridor.
I was concerned after reading some of the reviews, but for my first 5 days in New York i was on my own and every other hotel was in the $400 region... i paid $135 a night here.
Been a while since i travelled alone, but the place was cheap, close to all attractions, safe(my main concern) and i found the staff to be friendly!
