I love this place, the only problem with it is it's 14 nights a year policy (I want to come back). The rooms are clean and comfortable, free wifi throughout the hostel. Kitchens are great, save some money and cook occasionally. All the common areas are great although they can be over run by teenage school kids sometimes. The location... More

This hostel is well located, the subway is only 150 meters far, and there is also a sturbucks just outside the staion. Central park is also 5 minutes walking distance. In the room there are 2 plug in per bed. Toilets and showers are usually clean. The staff is friendly and professional. Lockers available in the room as well as... More

Not the cheapest hostel in town to start with, but the place has a very good location on the upper west end of Central Park. The subway station is nearby and lots of restaurants nearby. If you plan to visit the tourist sights in lower Manhattan it will probably be a 40 min ride to Wall St. The place was... More

I stayed at HI New York for four nights in 12 females room. The staff were really kind and friendly, and the room and bathroom were very clean. My friend had a trouble with a reservation, but they solved it immediately. Whenever I asked the direction to go somewhere, they always answered kindly and easily to understand. I didn't participate... More

Stayed in this hostel last November, and firstly the hostel is spotless, and even though the bathrooms are shared, they are massive, and are very modern and absolutely spotless, can't fault them! The rooms are quite small, but can't really complain, as they are clean and are a great price! Breakfast is also lovely and there is a wide range... More

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...

Your recommendations (using ear plugs, getting a bagel, etc) are excellent and will most likely be useful to anyone who reads it.

I have to be honest. I like hostels, but I never had plans to stay at this hostel. I checked in here only after I had to check out of my other hotel when a significant amount of money and several important documents were stolen, and I had to significantly reduce my budget…In fact, I had no budget. The graciousness... More

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 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.
