Ok, let's keep this in context; I had a "situation", so to speak, and needed a cheap place to stay in, or near, NYC for a week on short notice, for short money. The outlook was bleak, but I feel like I totally lucked out in choosing the Flushing Y over other, less savory lodging alternatives. First, realize that compared to a chain hotel, even a budget one, the Y ain't in the same league. That said, the Y's prices aren't in the same league either. Versus a comparably priced hostel or "low budget" hotel however, the Y comes out a major winner, in my opinion.
My simple, private room with AC, cable and mini-fridge was a pleasant surprise after preparing myself for nightmarish conditions. Shared baths aren't my style, but they were reasonably clean and available. Daily housekeeping was effective but don't expect anything out of "breakfast" other than typical snack-stand fare like à la carte muffins, single-serve cereals and canned beverages. General YMCA priveleges like pool and gym access may prove useful to some, but I found the facilities too busy to comfortably partake. As a bonus, I enjoyed a bit of a dining retreat with all of Flushing's Chinese and Korean offerings during my (almost) weeklong stay. That proved to be a real bonus. Y staff were all friendly and exuberant. I honestly would like to return for a few nights later in the summer, but they seem to be booked pretty solid!
