The room was very small. There were annoying noises from the pipes from the heating. All the place looks old. Rather than that is ok. It has a kitchen where you can cook. There are many toilets and showers available.

The rooms here are very small - most of them have a bunk bed and are fitted for 2 people. The layout is over several floors and there is not really any common area to meet people or socialize. In short - great for groups of friends, not the best hostel for meeting new friends.

My trip to NYC almost had to be cancelled because of the high prices of hotel rooms that included, besides the rate, the nightly service fees ($30 in some cases) and the taxes. My room at the Vanderbilt hostel was comparable to a dorm room with bed, desk, frig and a television. It is near coffee shops, GCS food courts and near Broadway. The eight shared bathrooms on my floor were sparkling and convenient. This all came at one third the price. Service is outstanding. Use of pool is allowed.

The staff was not that friendly, and I expected more from the facilities taking in account the price I've paid.

I love the vanderbilt YMCA. It's in a great location and the people are very friendly. Best deal in NYC, especially in the summer.

Vanderbilt YMCA is really expensive for a hostel, and offers much fewer amenities than many other hostels in NYC. Our room was $150/night, and it was tiny with a bunkbed and no breakfast. The showers were smelly, the only plus was the location (near the consulates/embassies). We have stayed in much better hostels in NYC for about $120 and have had breakfast as well - this wasn't value for money at all!
