Poor customer service!
Room VERY noisy. When we went to complaint with the receptionist, all she said was “ nothing we can do , it’s an old building “

Hotel with great gym and pool .
Stayed there for 3 nights . Check in was quick . Room was small but comfortable and clean. Shared bath room on the floor was adequate and clean . The gym and pool are something for everything and the sauna should not be missed . The location is a little out of way which is a little quiet at night but still looks safe .

Returning to YMCA NY after 30 years.
I love being able to use the fantastic fitness facilities while there. The bathrooms were very nice and the location is great. Left luggage was very handy. Concierge was good - all staff were helpful.

Does it’s job
It’s shabby and there were many noises throughout the night. I’m use to European hostels which apparently are more modern and comfortable and this was a disappointment. The last minute price is good but if you can in advance you can get very good deals in a hotel. all that said it was a last minute bed, it did it’s job, I slept and shower there, but I would rather go somewhere else next time.

Do your self a favour and do not stay here!
The hostel was terrible! The only good point was they made the bed everyday didn’t empty the bins the blind didn’t open the desk ( what was left of it) was worn As was the rest of the room! the room had not been cleaned behind the bed as I lost something and had to move it away from the wall and found wrappers and empty pill packets and plenty of dust. The room was set on very hot which was a dangerous heat to sleep in. My private bathroom which was the reason for booking the room in the first place was a good way away from my room and the staff were both undertrained and very rude! Do yourself a favour and find a well equipped bus shelter instead I’m sure the passing bus drivers would actually talk to you instead of being derogatory!!
