Worn, antiquated facility, no common area, terrible connectivity, tiny rooms circa 1940, bathrooms down the hall have been remodeled and are adequate. Compared to other YMCA's in Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore, & Sydney this is a dump. They charge $2 to store your bag after 11am check out (really, that's just cheesy). At $108 for a "deluxe room" you are better off at a small hotel. Avoid unless desperate for a place.

The deluxe sleeping room with bunk bed was small as expected but good. (Hey, it's Mid-Town New York.) Beds were very comfy, could use some reading lamps. Could use another kitchen as there is only a very small one for the entire YMCA but it was adequate for our needs. We loved the hot water dispenser. Fridge in our sleeping room could have been colder. The steam room was excellent/clean. The sleeping room was on the hot side but we could open the window. Quiet. Would def stay here agajn.

Nice people, well organized, we stayed for one night and we could rest properly even though the passengers did not care about closing doors due to an strong automatic close arm. There is no power outlet in the desktop so I needed to disconnect TV in an awkward location for charging devices. I think signs should be posted in order to make passengers aware that is a rest location and quietness is a must. Good deal anyway, however there is plenty of room to grow.

Very average. Over priced. (But it appears most hostels in NYC are the same). No character. But good location, and it does the job. Also the bed was suprisingly comfortable!!

Facilities are very basic, I had a private room and was able to securely store my property which as good. Bathrooms are shared, nothing fancy and just the bare essentials. There wasnt any obvious common area so I wouldnt recommend this place to anyone looking to network. The location is not close to the main attractions so you do need to travel but this hostel is close to Grand Central station so you can get anywhere you need to go quite quickly as NYC transport is frequent.
