      Great Value for money but shouldn't set expectation high”
      YMCA harlem is at a great location (upper Manhattan), 2 minutes walk to subway (2 and 3) with express service to downtown. Common restroom is not bad, at least clean enough, but might need to queue or wait for a little bit longer time. Room is still okay, but with some kind of weird smell (not sure if others have the same). Bought a air freshener about $2 from local supermarket. Food stalls available nearby (Popeye, Texas Chicken, Chinese Food, DD), supermarket, some shops at 10 blocks away (125 street).

      near metro, cheap, has gym
      I didn't like staying here. It was December and the rooms were not that warm, although it was apparent that they turned on the heat in the lobby to keep the staff comfortable. Also, the place is quite old and dirty; it felt like staying in the homeless shelters I used to volunteer in. Bathrooms were so-so; they were cleaned once a day. Often the toilet paper would run out in the evening. Overall this is not a comfortable place, and after a long day of site-seeing, it will not help you relax and rest. You're supposed to show your key to the staff every time you walk in the building, which is weird. They also neglected to explain this to me when I checked-in, and only after a few times in which the desk staff were kind of rude to me did I figure out that this is what they wanted. Perhaps they're tired of explaining it, perhaps it's a stupid rule, perhaps they really don't care enough? I don't know.Also, the area is pretty awful. There are few decent food options, and walking around at night feels dangerous. A street-walker even came into the restaurant I was having dinner at just to ask me for money while I was eating, then shouted profanities at me when I refused -- this is what Harlem is like. I really, really don't recommend staying here or in Harlem in general, if you have a choice. Even if it's cheap, just stay somewhere else and enjoy the nicer parts of the city.

      my stay at Harlem YMCA was OK, there is nothing exceptional nor something you want to complain about. Though it was easy to access the subway, it is a little bit far from the city centre. I would rather choose YMCA Vanderbilt and pay extra.

      Close to Subway, Gym and staff
      It's good value, considering accommodation in NYC is far too expensive. You get weird looking local misfits staying there long term, harmless anyway, and the area has no appeal at all. But it's very close to the subway (though Harlem is far from Midtown even on the subway) and has a great gym (with free access for guests). Rooms are small, with bunk beds, there's only wifi in the lobby and no breakfast, but again, this in NYC,

      Affordable and more than efficient!”
      The staff was INCREDIBLE! Everyone was amazingly nice and caring! The location was great! Literally less than a block to the subway. PRICE! NYC rates are crazy, YMCA made my trip possible!
      I had a fabulous experience! And I will definitely come back and recommend this place to anyone going to NYC on a budget. Unlike a different review, first thing: nothing was stolen. I only had wonderful experiences here. Seriously, the staff was incredible. You could just tell everyone loved their job and was here to help. The room was small, very small, and the bed was what you'd find at a summer camp from grade school (thin mattress, single beds, kinda lumpy, cheap pillows). BUT the blanket was great and fluffy! And the room was always very clean and my bed was made every night when I came home! And the bathrooms were almost always available when I wanted to use one. There was one time in my 5 day stay where I had to go to a different floor to use the restroom, but that was no big deal. It took forever for the water to heat up, but once I figured that out, it was no problem either. I really can't say enough about how fabulous my experience was. I loved it.

      Price, Price, Price
      It was okay overall, considering the price I paid it was reasonable. Not very pleased with the common shower room as the door cannot be locked and there's is no partition at all so you could be showering next to a dude like what you see in prison. I would recommend the guest to use the showers located on the third floor gym which gives you some privacy. The water plumbing was under maintenance for the first two days, so sometimes we could not use the toliet, which was quite inconvenient.

      My stay was great. I really enjoyed the experience”
      It was exactly as it was shown in the pictures. The staff was friendly and helpful. The environment was very relaxed and there were students from all over the world.
      The Hostel was exactly as it was shown to be in the pictures. I had booked a single room and they actually gave me a double (that is, with a bunk bed) to myself. I had read complaints about the bathrooms, but they were actually quiet clean. There is free wifi internet that can be accessed from the common rooms/lounges on the various floors. I was given free soaps, towels and the first day break fast was free too. Each room has a fridge, a desk and closet with extra quilts. I was somewhat apprehensive about the area, but the staff assured me that Harlem has changed alot over the last few years. I still felt that I should be cautious. However, the hostel is very close to the subway and its a good place to stay if you are merely going to be spending the night there. Plus, you'll meet a lot of other young international travellers.
