Exceptional 10.0
I have stayed at the Y twice in NYC for last minute reasons. I have to say, as an experienced traveler who has stayed at some of the nicet properties in the world, I LOVE the Y. It os simple, clean, straightfoward, quiet, doesnt pretend to be something it's not and both staff and guests have always been kind, warm and friendly. I cannot recommend this Y as a very affordable option. The front desk staff- day and noght were terrific!

Stay here and save your money for great dining!
We found this absolutely perfect for our needs . The rooms n bathrooms are kept immaculate . We’ve traveled Europe and extensively and I would liken this to a European individual room hostel . We never had a problem getting into showers. Our room was simple but very satisfactory. Room keys were checked when returning in the evening which gave a sense of security . Big thumbs up on this great value . We will return .

Great location, friendly staff and housekeeping, good facilities for swimming, cooking and laundry. If I were to I needed to return to Ney York I would definitely choose Vanderbuilt YMCA and recommend it to others.

Can highly recommend
The Vanderbilt was super clean and the bed comfortable and it is right in the middle of everything. What else could you want in New York. The air conditioning worked well, the TV worked well, there was good Wifi. The only negative was a struggle to get a key card that worked. We tried with the staff to get it to work, were issued a new one and finally maintenance got it to work. Other than that, a fantastic stay. Would come here again.
