        Location is excellent, close to Columbus Circle subway. There are food stalls underground which is great, lots of Asian food to choose from. YMCA facilities are top notch, glad i can use the gym and swim in the same place.

        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.

        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!

        It's ok”
        You get what you pay for, right? So be prepared for it to be loud late into the night. Somebody had heat issues a few rooms down and I swear it sounded like they were redoing the entire pipe system at 2 a.m. The rooms are extremely small and the outlet far from the mirror (minor issue). The bathroom was pretty gross and the shower very small (there is no where to put your things and make sure you take shampoo, though they do have towels and soap in the room you can use). People left their panties just lying around in there. The beds (bunk) were also very small and lumpy. Note you can go to the lobby and get extra blankets/sheets if you need them. It's first come/first served. For the price and location (right next to Central Park), it's ok, but be prepared.

        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.

        Great Place to Stay is you Want Shitty Staff Service”
        This place is amazing to stay if you like shitty rude staff. If you have ever checked into a hotel only to be told by the front desk that they want to go home for the night and to go and talk to security about checking in, I would highly recommend this place. Total joke and and the rooms feel like jail cells - not that I've ever had that experience.

        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.

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.

        Amazing location in Central Park...!!! In the other hand is a hostel so you have to share restroom and shower, and probably your bed will be a bunker one. If this doesn't mind to you, you'll enjoy breakfast in Central Park every morning and 10-15 min walking to Times Square. Nearest metro stations are 59 (Columbus Circle) and 66. The hostel also have swimming pool and gym.

        The Westside YMCA was perfect for a place to sleep and shower in NYC, which is exactly what we were looking for. The price is unbeatable in the city and the location is excellent. If your looking for spacious or comfort, you won't be pleased because it is college dorm style rooms, but if function and price are what you want, this is the place to stay.
