This is ok for 1 to 2 people only. Rooms are modern. Very limited space to put your clothes and things. This is a long way from all the city center high lights. A very long way from JFK airport. The area is old very rough and we did not go out in the street at night.

This place was great and i really can't say anything bad about it. The apt is big and its clean. My experience was a great one and I would most definitely recommend this place. The host was very nice and helped with anything i wanted or needed. I will be stay in again.

The room is quite adequate for tourists as you are only in the at night. Facilities were clean.
Note there are no on-site staff. Hotel and room access instructions were emailed on my arrival day, so need phone/tablet to access this info.

At first glance we were a bit weary of the place as the downstairs is quite cluttered and the house was very old, but after settling in we had quite a good experience. If you want a place in Harlem that has lots of character and a really comfortable bed, at a great price, this is the place for you. The house is decorated perfectly for Harlem and it really gives you the feel for what it was like back in the day. The stairs creaked something awful, but actually that ended up being part of the charm. Be ready to carry your suitcases up these creaky stairs, however, as there is no elevator. The air conditioning worked well, thankfully, as we were there in the heat and humidity of the summer and were drenched by the time we walked up from the subway five blocks and up the two flights of stairs. Jeremy is very laid back, don't be put off by his relaxed personality. He (and his staff) are really very accommodating. They even washed our cloths for us for a small fee which saved us valuable touring time! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

"Cheap for New York, elsewhere it'd be overpriced "
I only stayed one night for a few hours until the next morning because of an overnight flight stopover in NYC, so I cannot comment on anything else other than sleeping in the room for less than a full night. I did not use anything else the YMCA has to offer.
If you expect something horrible you will be pleased and surprised to find a decent, respectable and clean room. If you expect a hotel-like nice experience, you will be disappointed. There's not much else to comment about a bare and featureless small room.
Best feature is cleanliness and 24 hours check in (I would have found myself in a very sticky situation had that not been the case) as I arrived nearly at 1am. Worst is cell-like size of room with next to nothing else in it apart of the bare essentials. Bathrooms are shared, just a few of them in the corridor.
For the same price you'll get a very respectable room in a proper good hotel elsewhere, but NY is NY so for what NY is, the Harlem Y is the lowest price you'll find for a decent, clean room.
Special mention: I was greatly helped by the night-shift security guys who resolved a hairy situation for me when I arrived. I found myself in a potentially dangerous predicament with the taxi driver who got me there. The taxi driver was very evidently trying to rip me off or worse with a tricky subterfuge and the security staff were tremendously helpful and nice in making that awful driver go away.

Our group of 6 really enjoyed our stay other than the cold weather. The hotel really didnt accommodate us. I suggest you bring a heater. Chris the doorman was great. James on the other hand was not very welcoming. He should smile more.
