I booked one night here thinking I would get a private room after a long haul flight. Unfortunately my experience wasn't great. The noise from the street made it impossible to sleep, there were a lot of strange people lurking around and the bathroom facilities were a little dingy with only ice cold water coming from the showers. I can't fault the staff though they were really friendly and helpful.


it is a nice place. it is very economical and staff are nice. area is a bit away from the center but you can easily access by metro line 7. do not forget get your slipperies for bathroom

Overall this place is miles away from the city, in the heat of Chinatown in fact so don't be expecting to feel that typical New York or even an American vibe. The girl who checked us in was a sweetheart though!! The room was tiny, smelt bad, seemed as though it was a box room, my cupboards at home are bigger!! Not worth what we paid for. The internet was crappy as well and because it is a YMCA there are always people coming and going, meaning that it doesn't feel very secure.


Staff was clueless bathroom need an upgrade as does the system & the rooms need professional bedbug cleaning!


As with all other YMCAs i thought that this would b another place to crash for a night. But Flushings had all the necessary amenities that made my stay more enjoyable. The staff members were friendly&responsive to my needs. There's a need to ensure that all rooms are non-smoking as my first room stank. Thanks

don't expect too much about breakfast. they serve one orange juice and one bread. atmosphere was a little creepy. anyway there is a reason this hostel has not been described with more pictures. it was old and has a lot creepy residents there
