When I arrived around 10:20pm on a Friday, I waited at the front desk for 20 minutes but no one showed up. I went to the security guard and she said that the front-desk employee would still be on break for another 15min. What?!
To try and be positive, this place is close to a subway and the price is cheap (at least for NYC)...that's literally all I can say that's positive.

This is possibly one of the cheapest yet most convenient and WORTHY place to stay while in NYC! All the other hotels range anything from 100 usd and more a night! At this YMCA in Harlem on 135th street, it charged us 60$ a night...More
As a hub of African American culture, Harlem has played a vital role in the history of New York City. Today, the neighbourhood is as vibrant as ever as new businesses and developments go up next to local institutions. The heart of the neighbourhood is bustling 125th Street, where street vendors and historic landmarks like the Apollo Theater mingle with big-name stores. Turn down almost any corner, and
you’ll discover some of the most beautiful blocks in the city, filled with handsome brownstones, soul food restaurants, corner shops, and scenic parks. For a taste of a real New York neighbourhood, it’s hard to top a visit to Harlem.
