Buen hotel, baño compartido pero el baño del piso 11 la ducha salía baja, ademas no se podía controlar la temperatura del agua, salía o muy fría o muy caliente. Buenos servicios, limpieza, el baño es semi-privado tiene 2 toilette y 2 duchas en el mismo baño. Buena seguridad y área de reunión y preparación de alimentos con microondas. Habitación tiene nevera y tv.

Gracias por la revista, nos encanda que usted se disfrutaron. Perdon por el broblema con el bano en el 11 piso. Amos comensado renovando lost banos de el 11 y el 7 piso. La proxima ves que ustedes regresen los banos van a estar mejor. Stephanie Arzu Resident Admin

YMCA Harlem, es excelente opción para presupuestos bajos, considerando lo caro q es el hospedaje en NYC. Ubicacion excelente, estación de metro cercana q conecta a cualquier lado. tiendas para compras básicas y un restarante IHOP cercano. He estado en anteriores ocasiones en este hostal y me había parecido buena opción, me lo sigue pareciendo, sólo q ahora me di cuenta de la falta de servicio, en donde ni por error tienden las camas y de cambiar sabanis ni hablemos.

I spent 3 nights at this hostel, and I must say that I was surprised. The staff person who check us in was great, the accommodations clean and organized, we had TV in the room and a little refrigerator. The lobby has a little shop when you can buy food and coffee (and you win a $5 voucher to spend there). great time. The location is a little far from downtown, but there's a subway station in the next corner.

Muy recomendable,tiene el metro a menos de 3 minutos,zonas para comer cercanas,y pese a otros comentarios no he visto que sea un barrio malo ni peligroso pese a volver de madrugada, no es time square pero hay gente

При заселении требовали заплатить в 2 раза больше, чем в ваучере, пришлось разбираться. Трансфера в аэропорт нет, только такси за 60 $. Чисто!!! В целом, если не обращать внимание на безграмотность персонала, то жить можно. Бассейном, тренажеркой, саунами и кафе со скидкой не пользовалась. Вечером на улицу выходить страшновато.

We had a very pleasant stay at the Y and can only recommend it! One little thing that could be improved: bars or hooks or sth. to hang towels and clothes in the bathrooms and places to put the soap in the showers.

The Y is a great place to stay. Naturally the kind of people staying there is not just your general hostelling crowd. There are long-term residents, and everybody can access all floors. We stayed for 4 nights, and never had any issues with anybody: tourists or residents. You got everything you need, though the rooms are tiny. Great location, easy subway/bus access, lots of food places, always felt safe. I recommend it!

Everything was good except for the cleanliness. The bathrooms and the room wasn't as clean as I hoped it would be. Other than that: Great Hostel!

Ein nettes Hostel überhält Manhattan. Die Metro Station ist nich weit entfernt und kleine Supermärkte, Subway, McDonald's auch in unmittelbarer Nähe! Das Personal ist sehr freundlich und hilft bei allen Angelegenheiten. Das gebäude wird am Empfang von Sicherheitspersonal bewacht und man muss immer seine zimmerkarte vorzeigen. Die Zimmer sind sehr klein, aber völlig ausreichend, da man dort ja meist eh nur nachts zum schlafen ist. Leider kein wlan Empfang mehr auf dem Zimmer. Wir waren zufrieden.
