“A great place to sleep”
Reviewed 13 July 2012

If you are looking for just a place to take a shower and lay your head this is the place to be. We stayed for two nights on a budget and found this to be very satisfactory. The people working the front desk were very pleasant as were the security people at the entrance. All of their employees are well dressed and professional. The security is great and I felt very comfortable staying in a room by myself. You have full access to all of the facilities that the YMCA offers so if you want to get a work out in while you are there you have it made. The location is great! There is a Starbucks right around the corner and wireless is available for you at the YMCA.

Hostel is in great location, just a few blocks from times square, with local shops and restaurants just round the corner. also within easy walking distance of empire state and even central park.
Checking in we found the staff friendly and helpful but other than that had not much interaction with staff members.
Showers are located down the hall, there are 2 in one room and 1 in the toilet/sink room. Showers are good but curtains could be improved, also nowhere to hang towel which is a bit annoying.
Rooms are very small, but you get what you pay for and are fine just for sleeping in! Beds comfortable and a tv, desk and full length mirror are provided, as well as a sufficient air con which we were grateful for in the middle of summer!
Wifi is not available in the rooms but is fine in the downstairs lobby, which is sometimes busy with children on summer camp during the summer.
Overall, good location, not luxury accommodation but absolutely fine for a week or so spent exploring the city. Would definitely recommend to those travelling on a budget!

I was very impressed with the YMCA. I took a school party of 28 and stayed on the 7th floor.
The rooms were small but clean and did a job, plus they had good ac which was essential in July.
We new the showers and toilets were communial, they were clean and never seemed busy.
The lobby was nice, had a swimming pool and gym was good.
Having stayed at the YMCA westside before I think this is a lot nicer. Although I like how central park is next to westside and in the westside you had a small cupboard.
Staff were ok, always felt safe.
I will be returning again!

I had booked a 2 day tour of NY, NJ, DC and PA and was looking for accommodation at Manhattan. YMCA offers the cheapest option and is centrally located. NY taxi is easily available at next avenue for you. Its is equipped with a well maintained GYM for guests. Rooms are small and no room service is offered.

Room Tip: higher floors offer good view and less noise

When I booked this hostel I had no idea what to expect. The reviews here at tripadvisor range from terrible to excelent. I will hereby try to explain what you can expect from the Y.

I picked this place for two reasons: the price; it was the cheapest option, and the location just in the middle of everything. In these aspects this hotel was great. We could walk to many great attractions, the neighbourhood is safe in the middle of the night. We payed about 570 usd for a week for two persons.

If you want to stay in a great location for this budget, you have to give in on other things. The rooms (2 persons, privates; no dorms) are very small and have bunkbeds. They feel old and worn out, but ofcourse they would not collapse, as other reviewers were afraid of. Some rooms are however more worn out than others, some have hard floors, some have carpet (dirty!!). We had a clean room, the shared bathroom was also somewhat wornout, but it was cleaned regularly.

You will not find any luxery or nice designed rooms. Just a bed and a warm shared shower, thats it. However, if you are traveling to New York, you wont spend much time in your hotel. We were out all day and night, and by choosing this budget option, we could spend more money on museums, fancy bars and good restaurants.
