The hostel is in a great location and is walking distance of Times Square, Rockerfeller and also Grand Central so you can get the metro to basically anywhere in New York! I booked a single room and was surprised by the size of it, it was pretty small but to be honest I was in my own and all I... More

I stayed at this place for seven nights, mainly because of the location. It's really close to the UN-building. The room was clean, showers (shared) were very clean. I used the gym, and especially the pool. They have two 25 yard pools, for which you need a swimming cap for 'hygienic' reasons. The room had a very noisy AC, which... More

Fast check in, we were given a room on the 4th floor. The bathrooms are individual meaning you get a little more privacy. The bunk bed room was small but clean. The 24 hour security gave a great feeling of security and the location in midtown is fantastic. I would always recommend the Vanderbilt to anyone on a budget visiting... More

Looking for a place where you can have these few hours of sleep and do not expect anything else? This is the right place for you. If you are used to luxury and don't want to go below 5 or 4 stars - you don't belong here. Advantages: location, location, location, gym, people (at least most of them), price, the... More

Having just stayed four nights at a nearby luxury hotel (Paid for by company) I wanted to relax in Manhattan but didn't want a large bill. At a quarter of the cost I got my own room, amazing gym, laundry facilities and fridge. Yes a shared bathroom. It was modern, clean and met my needs. As a single parent this... More

Such a good location for a good price in New York. It's central, of course being New York it's within walking distance of most things. Rooms: basic and very small. Not enough room to both walk past each other. Get what you pay for in New York. We had a bunk bed from for 2, there was a desk and... More

Very old YMCA bldg, but in a great location if you enjoy walking. Its off 3rd av on 45th street. Room with a bunk bed is just enough space to step into the room and climb into bed. There's a miniature frig, a small flat screen TV, and a much needed window air conditioner. The room was clean but smelled... More

Stayed 4 nights in a deluxe single. Room was like a ship cabin with built in drawers for storage. Staff cleans the bathrooms several times a day and tidies guest rooms daily. Bed linens and towels smell fresh and clean. The air-con works well, but is a bit noisy. The Y itself has nice facilities that hotel guests may use.... More

Okay, being on the 45th, between 2nd and 3rd is a great deal and probably why I may book again around UN General Assembly dates. But honestly.. at a point claustrophobia sets in. But I really like the gym .. though I never got time to work out. Eating places all over too. The bed I slept on had enough... More

FACILITIES- Only found out that there was a kitchen area and lounge area by seeing a previous review on Trip Advisor, otherwise I also wouldn't have known about it as staff didn't mention the areas. The kitchen is decent, filtered water, basic kitchenware and a stove. I'm not sure if there was a microwave though. The kitchen is small but... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
