How far in advance would I need to book hostel accommodation in central Manhatten for one week in mid May?

Since you can often book with no prepayment and no penalty for cancelling, I would book as soon as you know your dates. There are only 4 hostels in Manhattan that are actually legal... YMCA Vanderbilt, YMCA Westside, Hostelling International and Chelsea International Hostel.

What do you mean legal? How can we tell which are which?

I was considering Urban Oasis?

New York has strict housing laws and many apts, hostels, and b&bs are illegal and/or scams. Listen to nywhiz. She is the accommodation expert on here.
