Was there as a group of 25 students on a school-trip to New York from Singapore. Room We slept in rooms of 4-bedders, and had the entire room to ourselves. Room walls are pretty thin, but basic amenities are all present in the room. You walk into the common area of a "shower room", a "sink space", and a "toilet... More

Overall, I was satisfied with our stay at The Local. It was a great location as we were close to the subway station, and ample amount of street parking - which was necessary as we made the 9 hour journey by my personal automobile. Atmosphere wise, it was very nice. It has a very post-modern feel. Despite previously being an... More

I stayed for three nights and the staff and other hostelers was so positive. Everyone was really friendly and the communal space meant loads of opportunity to meet new people and socialise. the rooms were clean and nice looking and the kitchen area was lovely. I would absolutely recommend this place!

I've never been in such a modern and clean hostel as this one. Everything is new there. They have computers that you can use for free and also free wi-fi - and the connection is good! There are lots of books and games in the lobby so you can read or play. The bar is very nice and they have... More

Nice hostel, very clean and modern, the rooms and the beds are great! It is a good location, very close from the subway and only one station away from Manhattan but there is not many food places around, not great for early nights in the winter! I found the staff very snobby and almost rude, very much preoccupied by their... More

This is a good hostel for young people from around the world who want to party in a safe environment, make friends, and get a lot out of New York City. The hostel offers free tours and has all the basic necessities for a good price. However, if you are here on business or truly need a good night's sleep,... More

My stay at the Local was so great. It is a fantastic hostel. All of the staff were friendly and helpful, and I felt like I could ask as many questions as I needed to. The facilities were comfortable and practical. My only qualm is the size of the shower, as it was very tiny. But I would come back... More

Me and my friend stayed for three nights here. We enjoyed our room - comfy beds. Seperate toilet and shower, which was practical but the shower was very small. There was an airconditioner/heater installed in the room that made a lot of noise, and the fact that we could change the settings ourselves caused some trouble since someone thought it... More

Really cool, modern hostel in a great location - just a short ride on the subway to Manhattan. Very clean rooms - I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm with its own bathroom. Heating was great (definitely needed in the freezing winter!). Staff were all very friendly and helpful, and had some great tips on exploring the city. Only... More

Nice hostel, friendly staff, clean, close to subway in Queens, good bed/room/bathroom. The atmosphere in the hostel was not the best, the ''travel'' vibe was not really present. It is a very big hostel with a very small kitchen (no stove or oven, only 2 pits). There is a bar, but you can't take your own alcohol into the hostel.
