Hostel is a hostel
Location is good. Gym and swimming facilities are good.
Small room without toilet. Shabby inside. Location quite nice : Central park is right on the corner. Not worth at all!

A little iffy
Price, location, availability of workout facilities
Somewhat Uncomfortable. Room was reserved as double with 2 single bunk beds, instead was a double bed against a wall. Not enough blankets before heat was turned on, then with it tuned on the room was Overheated. Mattress was like a futon, beware if you don't like that, and it's rather noisy. Thank heavens for the private bath, I don't know if that's always the case. Staff was friendly. Overall, not bad for the price, but would have been obnoxious to have 2 people crammed into the room. I didn't use the meal plan so cannot comment on that. Very nice location next to Central Park and near subway.

The best location
nice location, pool, good price
The house keepers were not very nice. They knocked my room before my check out time and even I hanged out the "don't disturb" card they ignored it. The youth customers maked big sounds at midnight, so I couldn't sleep well while I stayed there.

Sleepless night
location, free wifi
I stayed at the West Side YMCA Hostel for only one night, but it was the worst night ever.The staff was not rude but whenever I was approaching them with basic questions(I had to because they didn't explain anything when I was checking in), the facial expressions of the ladies at the reception were not friendly, rather highly annoyed and bored.The hostel is very big and crowded.My room was located at the 9th floor.The noise coming from the ventilation outside was unbearable.The moment I entered the room I realized immediately that the night was going to be sleepless and requested to be moved elsewhere.They did move me, however, the new room was at the same floor, same noisy.I haven't slept the whole night.The location is good, so if you are not planning to sleep but prefer to explore the night life of NY instead, this offer might suite you.Otherwise, you may be too tired to enjoy the sights a step away.

Clean, aircon, safe.
Great location on the bottom left of central park. On a main avenue & safe. Rooms were clean, had bedding/ desk/ chair/ mirror/ aircon/ towel/ soap all included. As my room was on the 13th floor (with a great view directly out into central park) bathrooms were accessed using your keycard - these had sink/ mirror/ toilet/ shower in the one room which you could lock whilst you were in there. I believe on the other floors it was same sex shared bathrooms. It was always clean when I used it. Aircon unit in the room was noisy but did the job of cooling the room down when I got back. Can't complain for the price!
