Hostelworld says

Hostelling International New York has been praised by many of our visitors for their sociable atmosphere. Our guests say their staff are 'very helpful and welcoming', they have 'good communal areas to mingle' in and 'they offer a lot of extra activities (tours, trips) which are value-for-money'. There's two metro stations within two blocks, connecting directly to the Lincoln Centre, Times Square, Penn Station, Brooklyn and Soho. We like their large sunken patio - a rare space to stretch out in Manhattan.

    Great hostel. Hang around the pool table/lounge/patio if you want to make friends. I saw a little mouse late night in the lounge, but the bedrooms are very clean and everything is set up nicely.

    Great location just 1 block from 103th on subway 1 line. Toilets are spacious and clean. Personal lockers in rooms are large with power + USB socket (head board too), freeing up space under the bed for luggage or shoes. Heater/cooler in the room can run 24/7 so that's a plus to adjust temp any time of the day. Common lounge is a tad large and hard to actually meet people. Everyone seemed to be hiding in their own corners. Cafe wasn't open. No breakfast served due to C-19. Bath towel on your bed!

    Hi NYC overall was a great experience. Some front desk staff seem friendly, some not so much. Location is close to the subway and in front of a deli which was cool.

    Great place to stay. Clean - safe - great facilities and staff are wonderful. They (the staff) can at times get overwhelmed with the volume of guests - so would say a bit more help would help. They run a tight ship - which is appreciated.

    This is my third time staying here, but the facilities needs maintanence, the hair dryer did not work at the women bathroom, and during winter this is a necessity. The heat at the room was broken, and sometimes it got really cold at night. However the rest of the staying was fine, friendly staff, you can storage your luggage if needed, you have a kotchen and diferent places to socialize.
