Exceptional 10.0
Great staff. Great facility.

Good 6.0
Gute Lage, sonst nur ok
Perfekte Lage am Central Park und 3 gehminuten von columbus circle. Personal meist unfreundlich, Zimmer vor allem am fenster und in den ecken voller dreck und spinnenweben, die gemeinschaftsbäder wurden jeden Tage gut geputzt, Zummer wie so oft und NY klein und einfach eingerichtet. Vor Ort müssen pro Tag und Zimmer 10 USD gezahlt werden. Den angepriesenen Pool kann man nur mit Badekappe nutzen!! Gepäck einschließen kostet pro Stück 2 USD!

Poor 2.0
Well we lasted one night in this place out of the 6 nights booked, the room was that tiny you couldn’t even get the 2 suitcases in, the window didn’t open, the tv was hanging by a piece of wire and there was no picture, the bunk bed was falling apart and squeaky you didn’t dare turn over. So we checked out after the first night stay and not to mention when checking in the staff were to busy talking about there private life and slagging other staff members well we was stood there and carried ignoring us bearing in mind we jus had a 10 hour day.. never stay there again.

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.
