When I booked this hostel I had no idea what to expect. The reviews here at tripadvisor range from terrible to excelent. I will hereby try to explain what you can expect from the Y.
I picked this place for two reasons: the price; it was the cheapest option, and the location just in the middle of everything. In these aspects this hotel was great. We could walk to many great attractions, the neighbourhood is safe in the middle of the night. We payed about 570 usd for a week for two persons.
If you want to stay in a great location for this budget, you have to give in on other things. The rooms (2 persons, privates; no dorms) are very small and have bunkbeds. They feel old and worn out, but ofcourse they would not collapse, as other reviewers were afraid of. Some rooms are however more worn out than others, some have hard floors, some have carpet (dirty!!). We had a clean room, the shared bathroom was also somewhat wornout, but it was cleaned regularly.
You will not find any luxery or nice designed rooms. Just a bed and a warm shared shower, thats it. However, if you are traveling to New York, you wont spend much time in your hotel. We were out all day and night, and by choosing this budget option, we could spend more money on museums, fancy bars and good restaurants.
