Amazing location, great price, but uncomfortable
Look, you're not going to get a better price for this location. Excellent deal. You also have to pay for a $10 day pass to the YMCA, which means you'll have access to the facilities, which many would probably enjoy. I also felt very safe in the facility. I was in a single, shared bathroom. The bathroom was very clean and luckily not busy at all. The room was clean, if not a bit run-down. The bed was super hard and uncomfortable, the pillow flat yet lumpy. You could tell the linens and pillow were old and well-worn. There was also a lot of noise during the night - people moving the chairs/furniture in their room around (linoleum floor so metal scraping sounds), doors slamming (heavy doors, so hard to close quietly), and at one point a power drill for some reason? There were also screws missing in the bed frame, so I felt like I couldn't move around to much for fear of it collapsing. So, not a great night's sleep. But if you want to be in a great location in NYC without having to pay $200 or a lot more, then this is your best option.

Exceptional 10.0
I used to stay here back in my university years. But I am a world traveler and I am aware of the modest expectations that I was getting the deluxe room with semi-private bathroom at the West Side YMCA. For that reason, plus the location, gym facilities and wonderful staff, I will be staying here from now on when in New York City.

Military Barracks /College Dorm Ambiance?
The room is VERY basic..reminded me of how the room looked like in the military after they did away with open bay barracks with the only exception that one had a private bathroom. This also reminded me of college dorms...very reminiscing. The bed was somewhat uncomfortable but did its job. It would be nice if signs were posted all over the place to be considerate of other guests. This refers to loud hallway conversations (regardless of language), doors slamming, loud TV volume. Overall the stay was good.

Unpleasant staff.Bedroom & bathroom dirty.Avoid it
The very unpleasant staff. They gave me a room that didn't match any of the rooms. The one they finally gave me was dirty and did not match the type of superior room I had requested. I was told that I had no choice. I asked to be cleaned of the extremely dirty floor. The cleaning women refused. I will never set foot in this hotel again and I recommend avoiding it.
