Having read the reviews on here before i left i did not expect to be staying in very good accommodation. I shall start with the service. The people in the ymca were not very polite and were quite blunt. The cleaners looked dodgy. As for the facilities, where do i start! The bunk beds were not stable at all and me and the my room mate had to take the bed apart in fear that the bed could not take two 14 stone men. I also had several stains on my pillow, which was not too pleasant. The tv made funny noises all the time when it was turned off but other than that the rooms were fine...
My worst problem were the bathrooms! The toilets had too much water in them therefore there was a 'splash back' whenever you went to the toilet. On one of my visits there i found a cockroach in the far toilet on the 9th floor! The showers were fine but the fact there was only 3 to share with a whole floor was not very pleasant.
Overall despite the location suitability i found the place vile and would have happily payed a higher price for somewhere less closer to the the many site of the city!

I stayed here with my sister in December 2011 and we thought the hostel itself was average. The bunk beds and pillows were not that comfortable and the bathrooms just ok. But the location and price made up for the average-ness. We did want to stay for cheap and spend more money eating out and that's what we did. Just north of Columbus Circle, it was so nice to be walking distance to everything and also be a little removed from Time Square/ Rockefeller Plaza. For us if the choice came down to good location or a better accomodation, we'll take the best location and we would stay in this hostel again.

It is located 10 minutes walking far from Columbus Circle, right on the south-west corner
of Central Park.
I went there for three nights on last July and it was the only place we found
in NYC for less than 100 bucks a night.
The rooms are very minimal, a bed, a desk and a lamp, but it is definetely worth it
if you are looking for a cheap and easy-staying place in New York.

Great pro: no cockroaches! :)

I was in NY in october and stayed there for 3 nights. Of course the building is old, the walls would defenitely need repainting, but it was clean (no bed bugs!) and the location is great. I was having a private bathroom (no problem with sharing...), and I will definitely return, it is a great deal in NY where hotel rooms prices are increadibly high! The cafe on the first floor was great also. Didn't have time to use the pool or the gym.

Accommodation in New York is of course very expensive and it's hard to find anything affordable.
This YMCA is very basic and bathrooms are shared (for the cheapest rooms, communal). It's a place for sleeping only.
The place has an institutional feel, but unlike some other reviewers I've found it neither dirty nor unsafe, during several visits. It's far from luxurious, but it's allright.
A big plus is that the accommodation gives free access to the fitness club and swimming pool, which are excellent. There is a decent cafe for breakfast downstairs.
It's really a question of what you're willing to pay. Anything else on the edge of Central Park will be at least twice the price. If you just need a bed and if you like a morning jog or workout, go for it.
