It was exactly what I needed, a place to sleep. I was attending a conference, the Y was 1 block away and it had all the necessary things I required including free Wifi. This place is right on Central Park - a great plus with easy check in and check out.

What you see is what you get. The hostal is very close to Time Square. The rooms are noisy and you hear everything on the other room. Overall, good hotel if you are in a budget.

      Good budget hostel in NYC”
      The location was great, only few blocks from subway. The staff was nice and better than I expected after reading other reviews. Though the sharing bathroom was not so clean after many people using it. Noted that there is extra charge of 10USD per day for using facilities. However, the gym was worth the pay.

      Cheapest place during peak summer ”
      Not the roomiest place to stay, but value for money when it came to travelling to NY in the peak of summer when everything is overpriced. Although we had paid for premium - it really means that you get a bathroom/toilet that you can lock from the inside (opposed to having to share with others in a communal toilet/shower situation), so if you don't care, may as well get the regular rooms. Close to whole foods and the subway which we used frequently. Next to central park which was great too. Air-con worked great and was vital for the days and hot nights. They also have pools and a gym if you are inclined.

      Everything is good except one issue I faced. Upon checking in, I have inform the counter and housekeeping about the faulty table lamp. After three days of reminders, there was no action taken. I finally gave up. the room was a little dim at night.

      Like being in college again!”
      The West Side YMCA was exactly what I needed during my NYC visit! My single room was small but pleasant. It included a desk and chair, wifi, a comfortable bed, a window, a closet, an air conditioner/fan unit, and a small flatscreen TV. Housekeeping changed the sheets daily and provided a fresh towel every day or every other day. The bathrooms down the hall were generally quite clean, with three toilet stalls, three working faucets (and one that didn't work), and three shower stalls. Guests are invited to attend group exercise classes and use the swimming pool during open swim times (swim cap required), though I didn't have a chance to take advantage of these offerings. The location is stellar--within a short walk of Lincoln Center, the Upper West Side, Central Park, the American Museum of Natural History, a variety of restaurants, Midtown, and the various subways stopping at 59th Street-Columbus Circle. My only complaint is that only one shower stall had a decent shower head; the other two were like taking a shower using a fire hose: lots of pressure, but stinging!

      Location can’t be beat! Mild in showers, small tepairs like the towel holders not present or wobbly, some tiles off in showers. Overall my room was clean and practical. Staff not impressive just there. Really appreciate the various ages of guests. The extra fee is a very unnecessary fee! Overall it’s the location and safety that makes it worthwhile.

      Very basic small room. Location for money is superb. ”
      No traffic noise, but the doors in the hallway started slamming at 6am with loud echoes. As a late night arrival having arrived from India with little sleep in 24 hours, this was disruptive. Bed was also soft and springy and should be replaced. But all in all being near central park and Columbus circle made it worth it. Staff is great too.

      YMCA should be your last resort ..”
      First of all, when you check in YMCA charges $40 to use the facilities. Thats a charge I wasnt aware when I booked i paid in full online. I didn't even use the pool, gym or other amenities during my 4 day stay. The women's restrooms were disgusting it seem as they went days without cleaning or restocking. There is 3 shared showers 1 shower head was missing and another was broken that left only one functional shower for the entire floor, theres no vent or air circulation in the restroom. In addition the room had a weird smell, we tried turing turning on air conditioning to air out the room but the unit was old, dirty and dusty I couldn't breath because of all the dust. I would recommend focusing on changing the air conditioning filters, repairing the showers and cleaning the restrooms multiple times a day instead of making my bed, unless i request it. I didn't feel comfortable having housekeeping coming in and eating my snacks.

      Additional charges for the room”
      A few minutes after I checked out,. the Empĺoyee went to look for me again (I was waiting shuttle to the airport) and asked me to go back again to his desk.... Once there, he told me that I should have to pay 10 dollars more for each day I spent in the hotel. The reason: administration fees . I complained about this,. but he insisted and said there is no way to avoid it. Please Agoda, you should prevent your costumers when the price you are offering is subject to be increased for the hotel due to these additional "fees"
