Bunk Bed Room
Stayed 7 nights in April 2017
The worst hostel that I've ever been. Staff particularly rude and with no concern for the guests”
Rooms really rally really really small! I've never seen something like this before. The price is definitely too high for the condition of the room and for the really bad staff of the hostel. Bathroom dirty and always busy. I really don't reccomend that

Good but Noisy”
Generally, Vanderbilt YMCA is a good choice for me. I'll still consider it next time. However, it seemed that the bunk beds of the room next to me were broken. The beds made very loud noise at night when they wanted to put down the upper bed to sleep. The sound was terribly loud and unpleasant. Like thunder. And the heater made strange sound at midnight, too. These noises woke me up several times at night.

DO from Vietnam

Stayed 4 nights in November 2016
The staff treated customers like they don't need customers ”
I stayed in the hotel for 4 nights. My first night at YMCA was smoothly until second night and onwards was bad. Most of the time I was discovering nyc and back to the hotel for resting at night. From the second night until I checked out hotel , the heater always off! When I back to the room, I felt freezing cold and called to the front desk for requesting on the heater. I called and they said wait for awhile many time but nothing happened. I wait for 2 hours and was freezing in the room and the heater still not working. Until I came down to the front desk face to face with them then they on the heater. But after that, when was in the middle of the night they off the heater again and I wake up with freezing body. My third and last night still have the same problem. I feel very disappointed about the hotel. The way the hotel treated me very bad! If they treated the customers like this, I am sure they will close down businesses soon!

Cold cold cold!”
The room window has an air-condition unit shoddily attached to it which means you're open to the outside air - I wouldn't be able to sleep in this draft during winter. I woke up frozen to death seeing they did not provide extra pillows or blankets. And the heat in the room WAS NOT ON. I stayed only one night instead of a whole week. I would not stay there again. Waste of money.
