Wouldn't recommend this hostel at all. The furnishing was very old and the rooms were not clean at all. Not to mention the very dirty bathrooms. Nevertheless the staff was very nice and helpful, which unfortunately can't make up for the bad state of the rooms.Had to stay there one night because it was already too late to get from...

i arrived from a very important meeting. i had many documents in my briefcase. i put the briefcase down on the "bed" (actually was a pile of garbage bags with a sheet over it) and went to use the "bathroom" down the hall. the bathroom was covered with bedbugs and i could hardly loosen my bolo before i was swarmed...

I read the reviews here that said "Bedbugs! Squalor! Mice! Cockroaches!" and I thought to myself, "I am a tough, savvy individual and I need somewhere to stay. I'll just check the room before I put the suitcase on the ground." So, like an idiot I booked the place. Even managing to book was a miracle in itself considering the...

We weren't expecting much, but what we got made our stay miserable. We were charged 80 dollars a night, and so many things were wrong that it's almost funny. The blankets were grimy, and looked and smelled as if they hadn't been washed within any recent history. We could literally see a buildup of dirt. The bed themselves were ancient...

So I read all the reviews re: bed bugs. I did. But I also wanted someplace affordable, and in the end, we booked 5 nights @ this Y. I really, really, really wish we'd heeded the reviews. Our first night there, they tried to put us (a couple) in a room with only a bunkbed, even though we had paid...

the first room we were in had bed bugs, but they changed our room straight away and had all our stuff cleaned, nice staff, cool area.

While we were very concerned about staying in this location, the price for the length of stay could not be beat. Having to go down the hall to use the restroom or to take a shower was also somewhat of a concern, however, it was not an issue. We were alson concerned that we were going to be cold in...

Stayed here in mid-2006 so I'm not sure how much things have changed now (early 2009). But I can tell you that I am (a) particularly security conscious and (b) a bit of a clean freak, and I didn't have problems at Greenpoint YMCA. It's a 5-10 minute walk from the subway. The area seemed safe - quite suburban -...

I booked a room a few months a ago - never got a confirmation, just an e-Mail with the dates of my planned reservation with the lines "THIS IS NOT A CONFIRMATION". I wrote them an email, asking for a confirmation no answer. No confirmation. Booked another room in another hotel and send another mail to the YMCA Greenpoint to...

This was the second time I stayed at this hostel and was really dissapointed with the way I was treated. My room was pinned (locked so the key won't go in) after an organisational mess up (I had paid up to the end of my 3 weeks there). I'd arrived back late in the night to find my door left...
