Very good 8.0
Good rating overall
Rooms were clean and towels changed each day. The a/c was useless, it was one of those that are fixed to the window ( not a remote unit on a wall). Bathrooms were always clean at all times of the day and always had toilet paper despite other reviews. I read reviews before I arrived and read that they charge you $15 per person for the leisure facilities. YMCA actual website had free passes which I downloaded to use. They said I still had to pay $30 as it's for the cleaning facility as well. I didn't like to argue but surely this facility is in your price per night costings anyway just like any hotel stay. We used the baggage storage service which was only $2 per bag for the rest of the day.

This is an idea for solo travelers
I thought this place was a good place to stay for summer and cost. I came for 4th of July fireworks! Pro: 1) Use all their facilities like workout, swimming pool, basketball, and other 2) clean public bathroom on the floor 3) great AC condition especially in hot summer. 4) offer 2 towers 5) get a small tv in the room 6) front desk is friendly 7) close to Central Park, Lincoln Center, and 59th Street subway. 8) elevator go up and down quick 9) reasonably cost for one bedroom Cons: 1) The bed wasn’t comfortable. It is too bounce. 2) pillow is too soft. 3) noises area 4) pay deposit for each nights 5) no subway map is offer All in all I would stay at this place if I come back again.

Exceptional 10.0
One of NYC's most excellent more affordable places
The West Side YMCA is the perfect place to stay for those whose purpose is to explore and spend more money on the many wonders on stage and off in this great city as opposed to those who want most of their money and time going to plush lodgings and mostly lounging there.The staff in all departments are excellent-friendly, very hard working and knowledgable.Those who stay here are a combination of students,families,international visitors singly or part of a group and are very considerate of their fellow guests.I have stayed here for over twenty years and the qualities of the West Side Y have only gotten better each year.The rooms are small and simple,but you are steps from Central Park on the East and Lincoln Center on the West,with the subway and a multitude to timely buses in between those locations ready to take you all over NYC , and you are being treated very well by all who work there.

Fantastic location. Reception staff so helpful & friendly. Mattress needs replacing - felt like a bicycle with a sheet over it. Room could be spruced up as it looks like a prison cell. Even though it’s a hostel a little bit of brightness could be injected.
