Booked a deluxe double room but when we checked in they refused to acknowledge the reservation was for this room type and put is in a standard room instead. Called Travelocity to sort this out (front desk at Y was unhelpful) and they tried to call the Y booking office for over two hours and no one answered, so we paid for a deluxe room but had to stay in one that was half the size. Next day when management came back and we pointed this out, they didn't even so much as apologize.

Cheap, right in the heart of Manhattan.

Pros: Staff, cleanliness, price, access to subway.
Location: In the heart of Manhattan. Subway can get you anywhere else.
My daughter and I were visiting NYU. We just needed a room with two beds and access to a bathroom. The YMCA was exactly what we needed. The facility is old, but well maintained. The main floor and entry way have been updated. The date of the building was evident in the upper bathrooms (avocado green tiles) and the closet in the bedroom, but everything we needed was there. There is a grab and go food store with limited options, but has what you need for an express breakfast or lunch (albeit pricey). My daughter would have preferred a private bathroom, but she will be going to college, so she needs to get used to it! The staff was amazing. There is 24 hr security, so we didn’t have to worry about being back by a certain time. We spent our time downtown at the university, but the YMCA is right by Rockefeller Center, Times Square, etc. It is an easy walk to a subway station. This was exactly what we needed and we were on a low budget. I could not have been more satisfied.

Clean and Comfortable

Cons: There is no need to improve it! It is great!
Location: Lincoln Center and Central Park are right there!
My room was like a college dorm room. It was fully carpeted. It had a/c, and plenty of heat so that you had your choice of climates. It also had a color TV. There was a ceiling light as well as a pole lamp; so that you could shut the light without getting out of bed. My bed, including the blankets and pillow, was very comfy. The bathrooms were clean, private, and convenient. As a guest, you could use the health facilities, such as the pool, which I enjoyed. There is a little snack bar downstairs, which was very convenient. The location was excellent. You were a very close to Central Park as well as from Lincoln Center. It was a great stay. Thank you, West Side Y!
