Hostel was near the subway station, only one block walk. Security 24/7. Area wasn't as bad as what you might heard. Toilet and shower were clean ( I stayed in 7th floor). Mattress was horrible to sleep, or even sit on it.

Dear R, Thank you for your valuable feedback! We will check the mattress in your room and make sure it is replaced with a more comfortable one. We apologize that you could not have had a more comfortable stay, and hope that you will have another opportunity in the future to stay with us! Thalia Harlem YMCA Guest Rooms Management


The room had only a bed, a refrigerator and a kind of a sideboard. I couldn't hang any clothes in there. So I had to lay my suitcase on top of the refrigerator to safe some space. Because the room had the size of a broom chamber. Having said that I really enjoyed the gym very much with the newest equipment.

Dear B, Thank you for taking the time to review our property. We are very sorry to hear that you did not have a more comfortable stay, and hope that you will have an opportunity to come back and stay with us again in the future so that we may be able to provide you with a better experience. Our rooms do have some variance in size, and most have closets, and we would be more than happy to place you in a room more suitable to your needs! Kind regards, Thalia Harlem YMCA Guest Rooms Mgmt
