As was to be expected the HI of New York did not disappoint, brilliant facilities, helpful staff and prime location. Nestled in on 103rd street you have only a small walk to subways, bars and shopping. Central Park is only a 5 minute walk and the complex boasts a fantastic atmosphere! There is no shortage of information or flyers showing... More

There is many reasons to stay at this hostel and the main reason is the location and that the hostel is incredible big. As you probably already know, this is a Hostelling International hostel, meaning that it's a bit higher standard and a bit more pricey. It's located 2 blocks away from Central Park, which gonna take you 2-3 minutes... More

This hostel is a perfect option for a stay. Since New York is a giant city and there are alot to do and to see, you'll most likely won't be staying in your room even half of 24 hours so why to spend lots of money on expensive hotels... Allthough this hostel is also not so cheap. Anyhow, best option... More

Stayed here in late January and wasn't disappointed. Was there for three nights and had a nice stay. The rooms are pretty modern and have lockers. The bathrooms are also clean and modern. The location was really good, the subway is only across the street and takes around 10-15 minutes to get to Times Square. Probably on the pricey side... More

Great place, felt nice and big, safe and each time I've been back they have improved it. Nice, large, clean rooms and it was always being cleaned by hostel staff. Good communal areas and reception staff. Right near the subway on 103rd st. A bit noisy staying in the rooms at the back of the building as it was nearer... More

You can lear so much interacting with other roommates. Also, in order to save money, use the kitchen which is underground. You can buy food and fruits on small markets around and cook it and on your own.
