As a solo traveler this place is GREAT! The staff are friendly, its clean, I needed a few extra towels and blankets, no problems. Housekeeping everyday with fresh soap. I paid for a private room with a semi private bathroom. Bathrooms were cleaned every morning, never encountered a dirty bathroom. The location was spectacular! Across the road from central park, 15min walk to Museum of Natural history AND the Met museum. Subway 5 mins away and Times square a pleasant 20min walk. I see people complaining about how small the rooms are but seriously how much space DO YOU NEED! Highly recommend YMCA west side.
