    Taking a shower was disappointing: 1) the shower curtain is not wide enough to close completely (so there is no privacy); 2) there are no clothes hooks by the shower stalls only two by the exit door; so to take a shower you have to undress completely in the stall, walk your clothes to the hooks, and if someone just happens to open the exit door at this very moment you are exposed to anyone that happens to be in the hallway. 3) need to have clothes hooks by the shower stalls.

    The hostel has everything we need with a reasonable price. Walkable to the grand central station and a few fast food restaurants. The staff can be hit and miss but most are helpful. Really appreciate the private bathrooms stalls which are shared but are available at most times. The daily 10 USD membership for the facilities is a bit excessive and should be include into the rent. Will definitely stay here next time returning to new York.

    For the most part my stay and experience at this YMCA was very positive. The security staff, housekeeping, and fitness instructors were friendly & helpful. A young man at the front desk was less welcoming. He lectured me after I requested room changes due to what sounded like a squawking alarm in the 1st room, a broken AC unit in the 2nd. (I did not use either room) I was simply looking for an environment good for sleeping. Room 3 was fine, but I avoided the desk for the rest of my stay.

    I loved my time at this hostel. Very old building, not for one socialising. It is in a very good location can easily walk everywhere to see highlights of NYC. I will come back there. It's expensive though, could do with more showers and toilets, but overall a good place to stay

    I was pleasantly surprised by the facilities. There are several showers that are private and lock from the inside, I expected to have some sort of locker room community shower. The room was small but as expected. The only thing that was bad was the check in literally took 2 and a half hours. There was only one guy working the desk and he worked very slowly.

    Great location, but it could really have some renovations. Bathrooms and showers could have been cleaner.

    If you need to rest, bad choice. Doors closing at night do a lot of noise and, in the morning, the cleaning ladies talk loud. Also, something I could never imagine. The cleaning ladies threw away by mistake 3 boxes of gifts I have bought, that costed me $150. Unfortunately I only saw it when I was gone. Worst cost x benefit ever.
