Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

The West Side Y, located just off Central Park West in a European landmark style building, is steps away from Central Park, Lincoln Center, Broadway, American Museum of Natural History and the attractions of the upper West Side of Manhattan.

The YMCAs of Greater New York offer single and double rooms with an upper and lower berth. Each room includes colour TV and air conditioning. There are shared bathroom facilities for both men and women conveniently located on each corridor.

Our facilities include a restaurant, free Wi-Fi in the lobby and computer kiosks.

We provide a housekeeping service as well as free use of our state-of-the-art equipment/gym facilities, including swimming pools, cardiovascular equipment, an indoor track and more.

There are also on-site coin-operated guest laundry facilities and concierge services.

There's easy access to public transportation nearby, while our 24hr security and reception are here to assist you with all your needs.

This location provides travellers from every continent with great value. Its ideal for visitors who want to experience the citys multi-faceted neighbourhoods as well as its fabled sites and entertainment venues without spending a fortune.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The staff seemed to be doing their best with the terrible place they operated. We had to change rooms three times because they smelt of smoke and had window panes missing, the rooms are small and grimy. Only one of the showers worked and the toilets were poorly maintained, the women's toilet failed to provide sanitary bins and so the floor was covered in used sanitary towels; the staff were well aware of this and didn't seem at all worried. The fitness facilities are included as part of the room cost and partly made up for the room; there's a giant gym and a pool, although the facilities were again old and a bit run down. Overall it seemed like a prison with helpful guards.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Unfortunatelly your front desk doesn`t go with YMCA values that you show in "Todays Menu", because they are not friendly and people oriented with the visitors of your hostel. On the other hand your cleanliness in the room is poor against others hostels that I´ve visited in the world. The best of your hostel is the location for sure! Next time I`ll try another option in NYC
