I made a group booking in the West Side YMCA, with a group of fellow travellers. While I wasn't expecting much, I did get more than I expected. The rooms were what I was thinking they would be: utilitarian. Basic, get the job done. Nothing fancy, at all, some of the others had problems with their rooms. However, the issue got solved quickly. Shared bathrooms were as you expect. The commons area was well furnished, the shop well stocked, if a bit difficult thanks to the card only nature. What really make this YMCA good is its location. Extremely close to Central Park and Columbus Circle, it is perfect for those who like to sightsee cheaply, on foot or by subway. Times Square was about 15 minutes away, and once you figure out the subway, you are within an hour of anywhere on the island thanks to the Columbus Circle station.
Extremely good for the price, don't expect a great amount and it will pay you back.
