I wasn't expecting much as this is the Y and I was looking to stay in Manhattan on the cheap. All we needed was a place to stow our gear and lay our heads for a few hours at night. The Y provided these things. I would say that the place was safe and pretty clean. We stayed in two different rooms during our two days here. Here are the cons: Beds are not comfortable, cheap "summer camp" type bunk beds wrapped in plastic; one pillow, AC units in the rooms either do a poor job or simply do not work. "Hotel" staff is not present between 11:00pm and 9:00am. This means check in might be a problem if you plan on showing up late at night and check out can be a problem early in the morning. Shared bathrooms are clean but you have to check the hot water out. The shower in one of the bathrooms only put out cold water. If you require TV you might be disappointed; one of the rooms we stayed the TV was just static. The staff was friendly enough but it's clear that they are not professional hospitality workers. Rooms are pretty small, the two of us were really in each other's way when trying to pack and change clothes. This is not in any way to be considered a nice place to stay. It is lodging at the most basic. Pros: Two beds on Manhattan for around 100 bucks. Rooms are secure. You may leave your bags in a secure area until 11:00pm for free. No expectation of tips from anyone. The neighborhood seemed safe considering the reputation Harlem has. Bottom line, cheap utility.
