Staying in September 2011 and April 2012, this is my top no-frills budget choice for New York City. The location is great. I like this location much more than the Y near Columbus Circle / Central Park. Though the $105 price is too high for travel in other USA cities, I can tolerate it for a few days in The Big Apple.
During both visits, it is amusing to see women occassionally using the men's washrooms. It feels like a trip to Ally McBeal's shared facilities.
I recommend bringing earplugs -- not everyone has the same wake and sleep schedule as you in these communal digs. Not everyone knows to gently shut their doors.
In addition to the many subway choices at nearby Grand Central station, I also like the frequent crosstown 42nd St bus, located five blocks away downtown. The 42nd St bus is especially helpful to and from Broadway theatres. The bus also continues west to the Circle Line boats at the Hudson River.
On my next NY visit, I will select the 47th St YMCA again.
