A great property. Security is excellent, gym facilities extremely useful for someone who needs to maintain their gym schedule. Beds are a bit stiff for my taste, but beside that, a great hotel with a bit of a hostel feel

I enjoyed how convenient the location was close to time square and the train station.

This is the worst stay of my lifetime. Checkin took an hour and 45 minutes. The checkin clerk was slow on purpose and very rude to pretty much everyone. Pretty much all amenities were broken. Restrooms were filthy beyond explanations. It’s better to crash at bench in Grandcentral. Won’t recommend this to even my worst enemies.

The staffs are very friendly. Security guards did a great job to make sure everyone entering is hotel guest, which makes me feel safe staying there.

Fantastic for the price!! Can't beat it. As far as the room itself, it was ok but not great. Bunk beds with a wonky ladder, not super clean, but the sheets were fresh, a single wooden chair and a tv. Worked for our needs but not amazing. I'd pick the YMCA again next trip!

The place was clean and impressive, I would definitely recommend this to a friend 👍

I liked the location of this as it was close enough to the main attractions in midtown. The staff were alright and the gym was good. The shared bathroom had a huge bug crawling around, which grossed me out. The room was nothing fancy. The floor under the bed had not been swept in some time and the sink in the room had lots of rust stains in it. It did have a mini fridge in the room, which I liked. I did also like the fact that security had to see your room keys when coming in late at night as it made me feel more secure. If on a budget and want to stay in midtown, this isn't a bad place if you don't have high expectations and won't be in the room long.

like the location & cleanliness of bathroom. did not like lack of lighting and controllable heat/AC

Always clean always friendly; bathrooms spotless. Great value for the price in NYC
