A room is small and not fancy at all, but it's New York City. Very good value for the money. Good security and feel safe.


Nothing special, lacking friendly backpacker hostels atmosphere so don't expect more than a place to stay for a night. However, it's clean and good place in case you want to stay in NYC for affordable price.


Value for money is definitely excellent due to the fact that no additional cost is required and comparing to other ymca across New York region, flushing ymca is the cheapest. The hostel is around 7-12 minutes walk from the Main Street metro station( depends how fast u walk) However, it does get a bit noisy sometimes during night time due to buses and trucks running thru northern. Boulevard. Besides that, staff were nice and gym + cardio room were a plus Bathrooms are acceptable.

This hostel is probably also a homeless shelter/ drug rehab. Dirtiest bathrooms ever. No kitchen. Room was clean and had clean towels everyday, though. You get what you paid for.


Everyone was very helpful....and caring.......great place,I will stay again in the future!!!

Thank you to the friendly receptionist who offered to look out for my misplaced gloves. The receptionists were very helpful too when we inquired about cab services to JFK. Keep up the smiles. =)

Clean, affordable room. The bathrooms were not that great - but overall, quite decent and a busy neighborhood of restaurants.

It was great being there, the facilities are awesome too, i enjoyed it although it is not in Manhattan!


I have stayed here many times and have always felt very comfortable. if you are mad for Manhatten yes it is a commute but only an hour with commute and walk.It is still tolerable just take the 7 train from Times Square. Room has free wifi, mini flat screen tv, micro in hallway alcove.Room very clean as well as showers. Friendly housekeeping....neighborhood Filled with Asian restaurants and juice bars and chain restaurants. I received a free continental breakfast as well courtesy ofthis website.


YMCA Flushing is a great place to stay. You get your own private room, and there is a gym and pool in the same building (which you can use), so there are lots of healthy, active people buzzing around if you go downstairs. I came not to party and meet backpackers, or fight over who's next in line for the shower, but to find an apartment and a job, so the privacy and convenience I got from the Y made it worth the extra money. 7 train nearby, lots of inexpensive food options


A friendly, clean and safe hostel. I enjoyed my stay there, thank you!
