I had my FIRST trip to New York City last week.
The original plan was to possibly stay at The Leo House, but time was running short due to circumstances for me and my vacation.
My partner and I ended up staying at the Y on 63rd st.
For the price it IS a deal. You DO get what you pay for.
IF you can deal with a shared bathroom, it really isn't that bad. It's well maintained and the staff are just great.
As this was my FIRST trip to New York, I was prepared for just about anything.
We certainly had no complaints and it's with in eye shot of Central Park.
IF you are on a tight budget and need a place to crash in NYC, I WOULD recommend it just for the experience.
Again, the staff was first rate, but then as I've learned, how YOU are with them, THEY are with you.
I'd do it again!!! Although preferably NOT bunk beds
