Stayed at HI NYC for seven nights - went for a premium female dorm (only a couple of bucks more and includes breakfast and free flip-flops for the showers). The staff are brilliant and so helpful, and the mini-cafe in the hostel is well-stocked and reasonably priced. The place is kept spotless (which is impressive for somewhere that caters mostly...

The building is good and the rooms are clean. They have good lockers downstairs for $5 which are big enough for a 32kg luggage. Staff was always courteous and correct, even when we had a little hiccup on a day. Only thing i'd improve a little is the air quality, i thought the air conditioner was not very effective. But...

Very friendly environment! All guests and staff are super respectfull The place is huge and beautiful, very clean. It's only one block away form the subway. Only thing, the email I got said free breakfast and then it wasn't free.

Very close to subway. Free breakfast coupons are brilliant and the breakfast is sufficient if a little sparce, we usually got a Bagel cream cheese and tea/coffee. Showers very clean and a brilliant pub crawl and clubbing night was had, clubbing night was amazing. Got to meet so many brilliant people on this trip through the hostel. Would recommend.

This hostel is friendly, clean and, in my option, fairly quiet. The location is ok, although if you want to be in the middle of things (i.e Times Sq) this probably isn't for you. Saying that, it's close to the subway (3-4mins walk) and a 10-15 ride to midtown. It's also only a ten min walk to the upper east... More

This was the first hostel I have ever stayed in and have to say I was really surprised at how good it was. The communal areas are kept tidy and nice to hang out in, the cafe has loads of different options of food and drinks. Bathrooms and toilets again are well maintained and the staff are very friendly and... More

This was the first hostel I ever stayed in. My boyfriend booked if for me at the end of our stay in America (he flew one day before me), based on his own good experience with it. I liked the safety of my locker, I liked the room which was quiet even though there were other girls, the common area... More

My brother and I spent a week over NYE here and despite the hostel being at capacity and New York being at freezing temperatures, the hostel had a fantastic vibe, the bathrooms were amazingly clean, the staff were friendly and helpful and the social activities were fun! Only downside was that the heaters in the bedrooms were really really noisy,... More

A friend and I stayed for 2 nights, and I loved this hostel located in New York City's Upper West Side. Although they weren't able to put us in the same room due to availability, we found this place to be a great. This hostel is very well located, but it's most importantly very clean! We stayed in one of... More

This would be my first experience staying in a hostel whilst travelling by myself and I was so happy I booked HI New York. The rooms were SO clean and the beds were quite big considering they were single bunk beds. There were big lockers in the room; you could fit your whole suitcase in there and your handbag. The...
