Phantastic location

This accommodation was perfect for us because it is centrally located and just steps away from Central Park. The room is small but if you only need a place to sleep and spend most of your time in the city it is a very good price because the room is clean and the area is very safe.

Trip in NYC

Will never stay in Vanderbilt YMCA again, some staffs were very rude though one of them was so nice. You will need to pay for extra money for luggage storage and need to print out the confirmation when check-in, which is super weird to me. I am not sure whether it is because it is NYC.

justo a place to sleep

I knew what kind of place I was going to but you can never be too prepared for a Place like this. Staff was rude. The room was small. The smell as... well, you know. I did what I came to do: see the city and get a good night sleep every night. And yes, of course, the location was ver y good.

Worth what I paid

I got what I paid for. The bed was uncomfortable, and the communal showers sprayed everywhere. But the staff is very nice, and it's a nice value, and easy to navigate!

Cheap but not very cheerful

Very tiny rooms. Clunky central heating producing loud noises. Drunks being a nuisance at 4.30 am. They did move us but bad nights sleep and then couple of hours wasted sorting out the problem. Not great on short break. Staff were great but I'd pay more to get better standard myself. Won't stay there again. Too much potential for disturbance.

Great location but tiny room

Can't fault location and facilities such as the gym and the classes. However we didn't get time to use them. The room was very cramped for 2 people but we didn't spend much time at the hotel as we were out enjoying the sights so if that is all you want then it is fine
